The Moto G will be the second bit of work following up from the Moto X that Motorola and Google have created since joining up and becoming a reputable team in the Smartphone land. The Moto G is the name of the soon to be revealed new handset, and in all honesty, it’s had a quiet lead up to its release.
The Moto G will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC clocked at 1.2GHz and a quad-core. It will also have 4.5-inch 720 x 1280 HD IPS LCD display, quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processors and 1 GB RAM, 8/16 GB storage. When we compare that to the Moto G it is almost slashed in half. About all we don’t know is how it will look, and that could end up being the difference between make or break here.
Things should get noisier once the real event starts, because Google and Motorola plan on streaming the entire thing live online so everyone who chooses to watch can do so. This is a lot different to the way Apple does business — they don’t let anybody watch unless you have a seat at the event. They do give a replay of the event later in the day to compensate. It’s no news that Android love to pick on Apple’s weaknesses — as any good business would — and try to better them.
Late October saw the name Moto G get trademarked, so it wasn’t until then that both sides had made up their minds in the name. A few days later a leak came out that its real name might end up being the Motorola DVX, but that was soon put to rest.
Although nothing is concrete until we see it, the event date is guessed at being November 13 for this one.
