Motorola Teases Moto G Unveiling On November 13


Claims that Motorola is planning a budget version of the Moto X looked stronger last week when an upcoming magazine containing details of the “Moto G” was leaked online. And now Motorola has all but confirmed the device by teasing a Moto G unveiling for November 13.

As we reported this morning, the Moto G is set to offer a 4.5-inch 720p display with 329 pixels-per-inch, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 8GB of internal storage, and a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. It will also have Bluetooth 4.0 technology and HSPA+ connectivity, but no LTE, it seems.

That’s pretty much what you’d expect from a midrange Android-powered smartphone these days. They’re certainly not specifications that will compete with the likes of the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One, but let’s face it, the flagship Moto X is hardly a high-end device itself.

Nevertheless, the Moto G looks like it’ll be more than capable with its 720p display and quad-core processor. And because Motorola is now owned by Google, you can bet it’ll soon get the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update, too — though it will launch with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean pre-installed.

So when will the Moto G be available? Well, according to a new teaser page Motorola has erected at, the device will get its grand unveiling on November 13.
