While most of our attention is focused on Google, the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat — Motorola seems to have some big things in store for us in the near future as well. Shortly after the announcement of Android 4.4 KitKat, Motorola started teasing about it’s plans for KitKat. Now @evleaks has also taken to twitter to reveal new information about the so-called Moto G.

We already have heard reports that the Moto G will be a cheaper version of the Moto X, but up until now it has been rumored that the device will feature a 4.5-inch display and the same x8 computing platform as the Moto X.

According to @evleaks, the Motorola Moto G actually has quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, a 720p 4.7-inch display, an 8MP camera, 8 or 16GB configurations and an LG-made 1,950 mAh battery. Furthermore, the device is said to be free with contract.

It’s important to note that this information was received by @evleaks “via a tip”, meaning that speculation is absolutely advised. If it is true, this thing sounds a heck of a lot like a cross between the existing Moto X and the LG Nexus 4. The leak doesn’t suggest how much RAM the handset will have, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see just 1GB of RAM.

After all, Android 4.4 KitKat is said to be optimized for such low amounts of RAM, so why not cut some extra costs while also showing off how good KitKat really is with low-end hardware? Again, that’s just speculation on our part.

What do you think, if Motorola can deliver a handset with solid mid-range performance while offering a price tag of under $250 outright, would you be interested or not?
