The Moto X is too awesome to be reserved only for customers with bigger paychecks. Motorola is aware of that and found a way to bring the Moto X-like experience to more users. Now all of you who have been dreaming about the all-American customizable smartphone and not being able to make the dream come true because of the price can have a chance to get one too. The company has just announced the Moto G, an affordable cousin of the Moto X. The phone will be offered at cheap price of $179 for the 8 GB model and $199 for the 16 GB version, both unlocked and contract free.
Moto G Customizable Android Phone for Cheap
As you might have figured out by now, the Moto G is not identical to the Moto X. Obviously Motorola had to make some compromises to keep the price at the lowest possibly level. The trademark feature of the Moto X, that is customization, is present in the Moto G but in somewhat limited form.
The phone has swappable back panel so you can pick your favorite color from a selection of white, black, dark blue, light blue, yellow, red, and pink hues. If this is not enough, you can add a bumper or flip cover.
As of specs, the Moto G offers a 4.5-inch HD display with a 720 x 1280 resolution which works out an impressive pixel density of 329 ppi. A layer of Gorilla Glass 3 protects the display against scuffs and scratches. Take a look inside and you will find a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM and “all-day” battery life with 2,070 mAh.
Other features of the phone include a 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0 and a water-repellant coating. The phone will ship with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box with 4.4 KitKat upgrade awaiting the users in January 2014.
The Motorola Moto G will hit the stores in the US after the holiday season, at the beginning of 2014.
