Cheap Moto G listed on Amazon, could become available this Thursday
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.
