After the high profile Moto X, Motorola is gearing up to launch a new device, and this time it’s all about the booming entry-level market. The Google-owned company will launch the Moto G on Wednesday at an event in Sao Paulo that will livestream on Google Plus.
The device’s mid-range specifications and attractive price have apparently been confirmed by a listing on Amazon UK, which pegs the actual availability of the Moto G, for Thursday, November 14.
The listing refers to the device as the Motorola DVX, the internal codename of the Moto G, and was put up by Amazon, rather than a third-party seller. If the listing is accurate, the Moto G will sell for a very appealing £159.99, the equivalent of $256. Since UK and European prices are generally higher than those across the pond, it’s safe to assume that the Moto G will sell for $200 if it ever becomes available in the US.
The Amazon Moto G listing states that the device is due for selling on November 14, just a day after its official unveiling. Looking at the details provided by Amazon, one thing that sticks out is the “Advanced Android with guaranteed upgrade” spec, potentially alluding to stock Android.
In related news, the Moto G/XT1032 showed up in the GFXBench benchmark database with Android 4.4 and a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8226 processor. Whether that’s a test device or the actual Moto G, we’ll find out in about 24 hours.

hay the dates AND days are mistaken in the article……14th is Thursday not Wednesday…and the moto g event is not tomorrow its day after tomorrow…unless you are in Kiritimati ;)
I don’t know about you but I am going to be upset if a none nexus phone is released with KitKat before Google releases KitKat ota for the nexus 4.
If this happens it will be the most rediculous thing ever. WHEN WILL my Nexus 4 get kitkat?!?!
Actually the city name is São Paulo, not São Paolo
sometimes it is pronounced this way too.Just like other countries which have different names depending on what language you speak.(i.e. in Spain Japan is pronounced Japon)
I might just buy this phone if it really does offer fairly decent specs for 160 quid.
For those wanting a custom moto x, moto maker is live on all carriers now.
