Amazon has just listed the 8GB Moto G up for pre order with the same $180 price tag. The smartphone is Motorola’s latest handset with specs comparable to any midrange smartphone out there, although a little underwhelming compared to the Moto X. Users also have a 16GB variant to choose from, which costs $200. This might lead many users to pick the 16GB variant of the smartphone as there’s no external microSD card slot on the smartphone. The Moto G will start shipping from the 4th of December according to the listing.
The smartphone is being sold unlocked of course, so you have the liberty to choose the GSM carrier of your choice in the U.S. As this is the global variant of the smartphone, there’s no mention of 4G LTE in the listing, which is a deal breaker if you’re on AT&T or any other GSM 4G LTE network. Motorola recently listed the smartphone on its website, so Amazon is not the only place to get the smartphone.
The Moto G features a 4.5 inch 720p display, a 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 SoC, a 5MP camera on the back, 1GB of RAM, Android 4.3 with an update to KitKat on the cards and a 2,070 mAh battery.
