Moto G could be launched via U.S. Cellular on Monday [Update]

Moto G

The Moto G has created quite a buzz over the last few weeks as it is one of the cheapest feature rich handsets available from a major manufacturer. This smartphone could now make its way to U.S. Cellular, which is the fifth largest carrier in the United States. According to a new internal document from the carrier accessed by the folks at Android Central, this budget smartphone could be launched through the carrier as early as February 10. Since the leak is coming straight from U.S. Cellular, we’re bound to believe that the handset will indeed break cover this Monday. Pricing information hasn’t been detailed as of yet, but it could be priced close to $100 to compete with the Verizon variant which costs $99.99 off contract.

Given that U.S. Cellular covers a wide range of customers, we can expect the Moto G to be a hot seller when or if it breaks cover through the carrier next week. The smartphone features a 4.5 inch 720p display, a 5MP camera on the back, a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, Android 4.4 KitKat, 1GB of RAM, 8/16GB of internal storage (no microSD card slot) and a 2,070 mAh battery.

Update: The smartphone has been officially announced by U.S. Cellular and will indeed go on sale this Monday as expected for $99.99. So make sure you head over to the U.S. Cellular website or the nearest retail store on Monday to get one for yourself.
