The Moto G has been leaked a fair bit in the past few days, and now Motorola has begun teasing the device officially. A sign up page is now live on the company’s website, revealing November 13th as the day the mid-range smartphone will be unveiled.
Unlike the Moto X, Motorola’s flagship device that remains exclusive to the U.S., the Moto G seems to be headed for a worldwide launch – the sign up site shows off an animated rotating globe, and Motorola’s teaser post on Twitter says hello in a number of languages. During the Moto X’s launch, Motorola had confirmed their commitment to Europe and other markets, and the Moto G looks to be the device that will mark the company’s return to markets outside North America.
If the leaks are to be believed, it will be a fairly impressive return, as the Moto G is expected to have mid-range specs – 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch 720p display with Gorilla Glass, 8GB storage, 5-megapixel camera, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean – at an entry-level price of £134.95 (~$215) off contract. It’s not a flagship device by any means, but if Motorola can manage to put in some of the software perks that debuted on the Moto X, like always-on Google Now access, it could certainly become the mid-range device to beat this holiday season.
