The Moto G smartphone was announced in São Paulo a few days ago to widespread media coverage. Although the smartphone is just a midrange handset, there was plenty of hype and buzz prior to the launch. Add one more reason to that list now as Motorola will apparently launch the smartphone in the U.S. with Android 4.4 KitKat. This is big news as Motorola unveiled the smartphone with Android 4.3 and a majority of markets will probably get it with Android 4.3 on board, so this appears to be a bonus for the American customers as well South East Asia and other Wave 2 countries. These regions will basically get the device after Christmas, which is when Motorola begins the second wave or Wave 2 of the Moto G rollout.
The handset features a 4.5 inch 720p display, a 5MP camera on the back accompanied by a 1.3MP front camera, a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 chip, 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB of internal storage variants with no microSD card slot, several back panels to choose from and a 2,070 mAh battery underneath. The addition of Android 4.4 KitKat will certainly make the Moto G an attractive midrange option for the customers and Google couldn’t have asked for a better platform to showcase the functionality of the new Android OS on mid tier devices.
