Meet the $180 Moto G, Motorola’s newest budget Android phone

During its global launch event today, Motorola announced the new, third generation Moto G with all-around improved specs.

Details about the next-generation Moto G weren’t all too secretive in the days leading up to this morning’s announcement, but today the hardware is confirmed: The 5-inch screen device (294 ppi) sports a quad-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.4 GHz, a microSD slot, 2GB of RAM, and an option of either 8GB or 16GB of storage.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

On the imaging side of things, you’ll have a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP shooter on the front. Motorola says it’s significantly improved the camera over its predecessor, and should provide class-leading performance at the price range.

Longevity-wise, the device comes with a 2470mAh battery with quick-charging technology. Travelers will also appreciate the dual-sim 4G LTE support on-tow.

Like its predecessor, you’ll be able to customize your Moto G with the Motorola Maker tool from the base black or white front panel. Motorola offers multiple mix-and-match options, from default background screens to colorful back shells and trim accents.

In the US, the device will be priced at $180 for the lesser storage option, and is available starting today. In India, the 8GB version will cost Rs. 11,999 while the 16GB model will be 12,999.
