Motorola rumored to be making a cheaper Nexus 4-like phone

According to the Spanish tech site ADSLZone, Motorola is making a less expensive phone in the spirit of the Nexus 4. Rumors concerning the American manufacturer’s plans say that the upcoming device will play host to high-end hardware like a quad-core processor, without the high-end price.

Despite a few unconfirmed specs, Motorola is looking to keep the phone priced very cheap. Since Google’s acquisition of Motorola, their thought was to produce quality phones within a price range people could afford. Other than the whispers of the possibility of a quad-core processor, reports are also suggesting that this device could come as an alternative to the Moto X phone, which is expected to be officially revealed in the near future.
