Google owned, Motorola mobility has unveiled its new smartphone Moto G, which will be available for USD 179 in more than 30 countries, including India, by 2014. The budget smartphone is loaded with all the notable features of high end smartphones, and is expected to give stiff competition to the existing expensive smartphones.
On its blog Motorola talks about how so many people compromise on buying good smartphones due to limited budget, and only those with plenty of disposable income in hand are able to buy the phone they like. In order to make a good smartphone available for all, the company has introduced Moto G.
The phone has a 4.5-inch HD display, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU. Quad-core processors are highly uncommon in low-range smartphones otherwise.
It has Android Jellybean 4.3, which is upgradable to 4.4, i.e. when KitKat will be available in the market. It has a 5MP rear camera and 1GB RAM. It doesn’t have an expandable memory slot, but comes in 2 editions, with 8 and 16GB internal memory respectively.
Moto G has 19 customization options, including interchangeable Motorola Shells and Flip Shells in seven colors as well as Grip Shells in five colors. This might remind some people of the recently released iPhone 5C, which comes with optional colourful covers and was said to be a relatively cheaper iPhone. However an unlocked 16GB iPhone 5C costs USD 549.
This move by the mobile maker comes as a pleasant surprise, since Motorola phones were at the verge of extinction in India, the news of Motorola bringing a low range good Android phone in India will surely make Indian Moto-lovers happy.
