Its launches are already planned for this week in Brazil and some parts of Europe; but unfortunately, for the US consumers joining for some G in their typical lives, the new Motorola handset is not slated to make its way stateside until sometime in the next January. According to a official statement from a Motorola executive, though, that little extra wait time is going to be all be worth it in the end.

Motorola’s SVP of the Supply Chain & the Operations Mr. Mark Randall has told Omio that the Moto G smart phone will ship to the US with the Android 4.4 KitKat preinstalled with it. He also explained that in the first wave of the Moto G launches, the device itself will ship with Android 4.3 and then it will be upgraded to the Android 4.4 in January. In Moto G’s second wave of releases, which is going to go out after the Christmas and include some places like the US and the Southeast Asia, Mr. Randall also says that the Moto G is going to start with Android KitKat.

It might be disappointing to some people that the new Moto G is getting shipped with the Android 4.3, especially considering that the former version Moto X is slated to begin receiving its Android KitKat update in the coming weeks, but at least Motorola Inc. is committed to quickly getting their low-cost onto the Android 4.4. Of course, that is something US consumers would not need to worry about.

We will have to wait for sometime more until we can properly put the hyped smartphone from Motorola through its paces before making any final judgements. But with the combination of an awesome 4.5-inch 720p smart display, a quad-core processor, and the Android 4.4, the low budget $179 Moto G could be a pretty compelling option for the budget-conscious wireless shoppers when it will finally land in the US in January.
