Icon7 Motorola Announces New Moto G with 5-inch HD Display




After a number of leaks and rumours, Motorola’s new Moto G smartphone is official. Unveiled on Friday at a press event in New Delhi, the smartphone will be released in select markets starting today.


Despite being a successor to Motorola’s Moto G, the new smartphone will also be called Moto G, as was seen in the leaked retail box earlier.
New Moto G sports a 5-inch 720p HD IPS display and is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor. The phone also comes with 1GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of internal storage and microSD card slot. On the imaging front, Motorola has included an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 2MP front shooter on the phone.
In addition, the smartphone packs Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a 2100 mAh battery.
Pricing and availability
New Moto G will retail for $179 in the US and goes on sale immediately.
India Launch: For those of wondering about the India release of the phone, it will be available at e-retailer Flipkart.

Re: Motorola Announces New Moto G with 5-inch HD Display

Moto G already have issues in battery front with users complaining that the battery is in inadequate, now they have released with bigger screen with same battery, not a nice strategy to start of with ... atleast a 100mA would've made a marketing gimmick ... but not now.

Goofd thing that they put a SD card slot but the 5 inch screen was not needed. Great stuff from Motorola.

Re: Motorola Announces New Moto G with 5-inch HD Display

This is in direct fight with the new Lumia 730 !!
And IMO the 730 wins hands down...

No this is not a fanboy speaking but a user who has the top of the line Lumia 920 and a Lumia 520 so I know what I am talking about !!

Plus the Cameras on the Lumia series make it the winner anyway !!

Re: Motorola Announces New Moto G with 5-inch HD Display

2 minutes silence for those who recently bought the Moto G (1st Gen) because Flipkart reduced the price.
Seriously that is an evil thing to do. FU Flipkart!

The fatal flaw with the 730 is that it runs on Windows phone OS. So thats a non starter.

I don't see how that's a problem unless you're really really hate WP.

You get better battery life compared to G.

You get better camera performance than G.

You get a huge benefit of installing apps straight to SD card.

You get a lag free, clean, smooth UI, that dosen't bog down due to less RAM.
And you get added advantage of Cortana and some of the brilliant native apps (MixRadio, Lumia Selfie, etc.).

Having said that Moto G 2nd Gen is really a truly VFM device. You don't get an upgraded, better device and that too at the same price as it's old gen.
Great job, Moto!

You know what he is trying to stay.

And there is no fire to ignite. Atleast not with WP. 3% market share can't do much really. The fight of Android is with iOS and android is leaps ahead of that too. Though iOS app store is equally good or even better than play store. WP fans sure knows to stick their nose in android/iOS threads.

Actually Everyone know that the next version is due in Sep,
Its not a secret so I don't think customer need a moment of silence.
Its a normal practice to reduce the price of the outgoing model to clear the stock.
For eg, tons of offers on the outgoing skoda Rapid.

Ummm No! My friend got 2 Moto Gs for his parents a few weeks back.
Everyone doesn't follow technology like you do or I do. Many people didn't know Moto G 2nd Gen was about to launch and that too with the same price tag as 1st Gen.
And thank you for sharing your knowledge regarding stock clearance. I didn't know that.
