Motorola has announced its first international flagship device since the Google deal. It isn't a surprise though, as Motorola strategically teased the device last week, and confirmed it will be announced today, November 13th.
True enough, the Motorola Moto G is marketed as a budget-friendly phone. The fact that Motorola is bringing the phone earlier to Latin America and Asia reveals much about Motorola's intent. Priced competitively low at $179 (8GB) and $199 (16GB), and powered by a Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz and featuring a 4.5-inch HD display with a 326 ppi, the Moto G is not to be taken lightly.
The phone also features a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, a 2070 mAh battery, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Motorola was very clear that it will receive the Android 4.4 KitKat update early next year.
Unfortunately, the phone doesn't have a microSD slot, but users will have an ample 65GB of Google Drive cloud storage. The battery is also non-removable, but there's an option to change back skins every once in a while. Not bad, Motorola.
