According to a new rumor, Motorola could be looking to launch the Moto G through American prepaid carrier Boost Mobile which is a subsidiary of Sprint. There’s not much to know as of now, but considering that the Moto G is a midrange smartphone, it’s safe to assume that the information is legitimate. The revelation comes from renowned leakster Evleaks, which has a good track record with device leaks so far, so we have every reason to believe that this is in fact true.
Boost Mobile doesn’t have a lot of high end devices in its lineup and the addition of the Moto G won’t change that. However, given the price Motorola is selling the Moto G for, Boost Mobile could look to make inroads in the midrange market segment in the U.S.
The Moto G packs a 4.5 inch 720p display, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 quad core chipset, a 5MP camera, Android 4.4 KitKat, 8/16GB of storage, 1GB of RAM and a 2,070 mAh battery. The 8GB Moto G costs $179.99 while the 16GB variant costs $199.99, with both models being sold unlocked and off contract.
