We know the Motorola Moto G is coming later this week, and we’re pretty excited about what’s lining up to be a serious return to the UK market for the Google-owned firm. Now, with a short time until the device’s official debut, it has been accidentally leaked through Amazon.
The page has since been taken down, but not before a screenshot was grabbed to share with the world. The phone was actually put up under the model number DVX/XT1032, but then mentions the Moto G later on in the description. It lists the Moto G’s release day as 14 November, which is the day after the Motorola launch event.
What it doesn’t provide is a full set of specifications, teasing us instead with talk of a 4.5-inch high definition screen, a quad-core processor, and Android 4.3 with a “guaranteed upgrade.” This could mean the Moto G will come with Android 4.3, but Android 4.4 KitKat will soon follow. The phone will also have coloured rear panels, according to the advert.
All this makes it sound like a smaller, cheaper version of the Moto X, which was released in America during the summer. We’ll have to wait and see if it shares the same voice control system, which works even when the phone is locked and sleeping.
If Amazon’s listing is correct, the Moto G could cost just £160 SIM-free, which is a very competitive price. All will be revealed on 13 November.
