Motorola will launch a new smartphone titled Moto G on November 13. The company has launched a teaser site along with a post on Twitter inviting users to catch the live event online. Moto G is expected to be an affordable little brother to the Moto X. This will be Motorola’s second key launch, under Google, after the Moto X announcement. Moto X has been in the news for the ease of customization while ordering.
While the Moto X has only been limited to US smartphone buyers till now, the company is expected to break the regional barriers with the Moto G this time. That’s purely out of speculation since the invitation on Twitter greeted fans in around seven different languages.
The word on the street is that the Moto G is likely to include a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon SoC, supported by 8GB of internal memory and a 5MP primary camera. The specifications sound fairly moderate but then this is supposed to be a low budget smartphone. There’s still no word on software, but it’ll be surprising to not find Android 4.4 KitKat on the Moto G, with Google going quite vocal on how the latest edition of Android works best on even low-end devices.
Apart from the software, it’ll be interesting to see how Motorola decides to price the Moto G and which countries will get the new smartphone. We’ll bring you more on this after the launch.
