After what seems like loads of leaks recently, Motorola has just official unveiled this year’s Moto G smartphone. And just like previous incarnations, this phone is basically for the more budget-conscious consumer, but it’s certainly one of the better phones out there and you won’t need to sacrifice too much of the Android experience.
Moto G official unveiled
As we previously suspected, the Moto G is IPX7-certified waterproof, has a 2,470 mAh battery, a quad-core CPU and takes expandable storage via microSD card. There’s also a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel one on the front, besides 4G network support.
The new processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core model at 1.4 GHz. There’s a 5-inch 720p HD display and the phone is available in both 8 GB and 16 GB versions, both with removable storage (up to 32 GB).
The new model of the Moto G also has Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and packs the usual array of sensors. Available as standard in black or white, it also runs Android Lollipop.
As of today, the new Moto G is available in 60 countries. In the US for example, it costs $179.99 for the base 8 GB model, or $219.99 for the 16 GB version.
