Archive for the ‘Moto G’ tag
Mid Randge segment has been a very odd market for the smartphones of today.However, it is still one of the most important and profits making segment as proven by Samsung when they came out making majority of profits with their entry/mid range phones in the last financial year.
Today Motorola announced it’s Moto G and with it’s specs it wont kick any ball out of the park. What you exactly get is : 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400, 4.5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, 5MP main camera, and either 8GB or 16GB storage. All that for $180/$200. OFF contract.
Phones similar to the Moto G are the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the HTC One Mini and these OEMs are asking for double the price. With a great device positioned so aggressively, would you get yourself a Moto G?
With Motorola’s latest offering being anticipated for it’s release tomorrow, new “confirmed” specs show that this phone would be rocking mid range specs and would come more on the list of budget phones .
A couple of last minute gaffs say that this phone would be priced between $238 and $255 . We even had some familiar features pop up, with these postings confirming hardware details like the 326ppi 4.5-inch 720p display and 8GB storage. It also does look like the Moto G will have 1 gigabyte of RAM, but considering its budget positioning, it’s not entirely surprising.
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.
