NEW DELHI: Google-owned smartphone maker Motorola impressed the technology world with its Moto X smartphone in August, but disappointed many when it was announced that it will only sell in the US market. However, the company is preparing a low-cost version of the device aimed at emerging markets.
Technology website GSMArena has leaked an image of the upcoming smartphone, named Moto G. The image is of a promotion card for the handset, detailing key hardware specifications and operating system version.
Moto G will have a 4.5-inch edge-to-edge display with 720p resolution and 329p pixel density and will be powered by Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) out of the box. Motorola is likely to update the smartphone at least to Android 4.4 (KitKat), as it announced that all models under its new range will be upgraded to next version of the OS at least once.
The image also reveals that Moto G will run on a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor and come with 8GB internal storage and a water-repellent coating. The phone will sport a 5MP rear camera and 1.2MP front unit and will be powered by a 1,950mAh battery.
