Motorola today announced the Moto G, a device that Motorola says delivers a premium experience at one-third the price of today's flagship devices. The Moto G resembles the Moto X, which Motorola released earlier this year, but is more affordable and targeted at consumers who are on a budget. It has the same curved back, Gorilla Glass, and waterproof nano-coating to protect the internal components from moisture. The screen measures 4.5 inches and includes 1280 x 720 pixels. The G is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM and has a 2,070mAh battery. In includes a 5-megapixel rear camera and 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. The device ships with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean and Motorola is guaranteeing an update to Android 4.4 KitKat. Unlike the Moto X, the Moto G has removable back covers, which can be interchanged for customization. Motorola is selling the unlocked 8GB Moto G on its web site for $179 and the 16GB version for $199. The device goes on sale in Brazil and select European markets this week, with other Latin American and European markets to follow several weeks later. The Moto G won't be available in the U.S. until January 2014.
