Motorola just unveiled their newest entry, the Moto G, and it’s looking to be a game changer. Although the smartphone will surely be slammed by first world smartphone owners as under-powered and undesirable, the affordably priced unit will finally bring the latest Google software and decent specs to many who otherwise could not afford it.
Spec wise, the Moto G touts a Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor running at 1.2 GHz, a 5 megapixel camera, 1 GB of RAM, a 4.5 inch 720p HD display, and will come with 8 or 16GB of storage. The device will ship unlocked and untethered, all for $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model. The Moto G will ship with Android 4.3, and will receive Android 4.4 KitKat in January.
Motorola has made a video showcasing the Moto G, and it looks pretty sweet to me. Check it out below, and expect to see the Moto G hitting U.S. shelves in early 2014.
