Last year, Motorola released its ultra-affordable Moto G, in the United States and carried a modest price tag of $179 unlocked for the 8GB model, while the 16GB model will set you back by $199. The handset is also heading to Boost Mobile later this month, and is also expected to hit Verizon as well in the coming days.
If you’re residing in Australia, and want to get your hands-on the affordable Moto G, you’re in luck as it is expected to launch in Australia on 13th of January with a price tag of A$279 (almost $250) for the 8GB model, which is a little expensive compared to the US, according to Ausdroid.
According to the folks at Ausdroid, the handset will hit Telechoice in Australia, a Mobile Virtual Network Operator that uses Telstra’s 3G services. There’s no word if any Moto G accessory will hit the Australian shores or not, but we will eventually find out about them once the handset goes on sale.
Moto G comes with a 4.5-inch display boasting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1GB of RAM, 8/16Gb storage, 5MP rear camera for photos and videos, 2,070 mAh battery with a 1.2MP front-facing camera, and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean pre-installed out of the box.
