Moto G sneaks onto Amazon UK, quickly disappears

Motorola is expected to introduce the Moto G smartphone at an event in but a few days time. It’s on November 13 we should see a low-cost alternative to the Moto X unveiled. How low? Well, we’ve heard as low as zero with a two-year service agreement but that’s not confirmed yet.

Today sees word that the Moto G inadvertently showed up on Amazon UK before quickly disappearing.  Reportedly, the phone was listed at £159.99 without a contract; arrival date was shown as November 14. Quick and dirty math tells us this could result in about $270 US, or quite a bargain for an off-contract device.

Specifications for the XT1032/DVX Moto G are expected to include a 4.5-inch display, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, a quad-core processor, and at least 16GB internal storage. Other details rumored over the last few weeks include an 8-megapixel camera and a 1950mAh battery. For what it’s worth, benchmarks have been spotted with the model number running Android 4.4 KitKat. Take that however you want…

Pairing the software experience of the Moto X with a lower-cost device sounds like nothing but good for those looking for a great first smartphone this winter.
