Motorola started selling the ultra-affordable Moto G on its website ahead of the previously announced date of January, and it seems the smartphone will hit Amazon shelves as well. Currently, the retailer is taking pre-orders of the handset for $179 for the 8GB version while the 16GB comes with a $199 price tag for the unlocked version, with an expected shipment date of December 4th. The orders from Amazon will ship a little late compared to Motorola’s official website, which currently lists December 2nd as the shipment date.
The affordable Moto G packs a brilliant 4.5-inch display boasting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with 326 ppi pixel density. The handset is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 chipset with a clock speed of 1.2GHz and 1GB RAM on board.
On the storage side, the handset brings 8GB and 16GB storage, but there’s no expandable memory. On the rear, Moto G packs a 5MP camera capable of recording videos at 720p with a 1.2MP front-facing camera for video calls.
Other features include WiFi, Bluetooth, 2,070 mAh battery and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box, along with a promise that it will get the sweet taste of Android 4.4 KitKat early next year. In addition, the handset also brings colorful back shells and flip covers, which costs $14.99 and $29.99, respectively.
