Moto G

A bunch of rumors have been bandied around over the course of the past three months, implying that Motorola is in the process of developing a new budget friendly, low-end Moto X variant, dubbed the DVX. However, a leaked upcoming magazine clipping reveals that the device will, in fact, be called the “Moto G” and is set to pack some pretty mediocre internals.

In terms of specifications, the G is expected to feature a 4.5-inch IPS edge-to-edge capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 (329ppi), a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon Pro processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 4.0 and HSPA+ connectivity.

The handset will ship running the stock version of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and is presumed to be upgradable to 4.4 KitKat shortly after the Moto G’s official release.

Furthermore, a recent FCC filing for the device also reveals that it will pack a variety of the latest connectivity options, including: GSM 850/900/1800/1900, EDGE Class 12, WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100, HSDPA 21.1Mbps (Category 14), HSUPA 5.76Mbps, Bluetooth Class 1, Version 4.0 LE+EDR, and 802.11b/802.11g/802.11n Wi-Fi.

In terms of an official announcement, we’re still in the dark. But, judging by the design of the above image, we anticipate a Christmas release.
