Motorola has made it official that it will announce its next phone, the Moto G, later this month. Motorola has set November 13th as the date it debuts what may be a Moto X for budget consumers in the US, Europe, and other regions.
The Moto G appeared briefly on the Motorola site last week but was soon removed. Today, a new teaser page is live and letting users sign-up for information about the Moto G once it is announced one week from Wednesday. The reason I say that this could be for markets outside of the U.S. is that the teaser makes it a point to list the date in English, Spanish, French, and Vietnamese, signaling a more international touch to the Moto G launch. The Moto X was distinctly made for and sold to only consumers in the U.S., and the Moto G is expected to be an option for the rest of the world.
Varying rumors suggest that the Moto G will have a design similar to the Moto X but slightly different specifications. Don't be surprised to see a phone with a 4.7-inch 720 display, a 1.2GHz or a 1.5 GHz Qualcomm S4 Pro dual-core processor, a 1,950 mAh battery, a 5-megapixel camera, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.source: Moto G, via: 9to5 Google
