On September 4, Motorola is going to show off not only a new Moto X, but a new Moto G as well. Don’t believe us? Go back and look at their press invite again, which clearly shows a phone with the letter “G” centered on its display.
Thanks to the folks over at HelloMotoHK, we may have one of our first looks (pictured above) at the new mid-range device. According to their images and information, the new Moto G will support dual-SIM (international variant) and microSD cards, along with swappable back covers, just like the original. We could also get an upgraded 5-inch HD display, 8MP rear camera, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and the dual-front speakers that were first introduced on the Moto E. (more…)
As a retirement gift, @evleaks just Tweeted the image above, which is likely a set of press renders for the new Moto X (or Moto X+1) that is headed for Verizon.
Two variants of the device are shown, one as an all-black base model, the other as a white and wood combo, something that you would see on the original Moto X if it were made through MotoMaker. It looks exactly like the last leak we saw, which showed a device with a wood back, centered Motorola logo/button, big camera housing, and metal trim. (more…)
On September 4, the day after Samsung gets done announcing its next Galaxy Note device, Motorola will host a press event of their own to unveil new products. We are fully expecting the next version of the Moto X to be the star of the show, along with the Moto 360. There may also be a new Moto G on hand. Well, that’s at least what the invite is hinting at.
Rumors of a Moto X+1 as the follow-up have existed for months now, but as we often remind folks, nothing is official until Motorola makes it official. The Moto 360, on the other hand, is all sorts of official already. This event should fill in some of the blanks, though, like final specs and price. The Moto G has helped Motorola find some success after years of frustration, so it only makes sense that they refresh the handset.
Who is ready for Motorola’s next big launch? (more…)
Lucky Moto G users on Verizon received an update to Android 4.4.4 a few days early, but Motorola announced a broader rollout via Twitter today.
Across-the-board enhancements are in tow, including new camera features, an updated dialer UI, and a bundled Motorola Alert application. (more…)
A photo has been uploaded to the web, claiming to show off Motorola’s 2nd generation Moto G smartphone. The name, which is reportedly to be Moto G 2nd Generation, appears to have about the same body and design as the current Moto G (the frontside, at least), but according to the source, this device could feature a slight upgrade in specifications.

Just before Google I/O, we pointed out the fact that the majority of Google Play Edition devices on Google Play had become depleted of inventory, with only the One (M8) and Moto G showing as available for purchase. We weren’t sure what to make of it at the time, but as of today, Google has begun to wipe out devices that no longer have or haven’t had inventory for some time. (more…)
Motorola is updating the boot animation on its Moto devices this week – including the Moto X – to a World Cup theme. Since we have a solid month of soccer to celebrate, watch, and become temporary fans of (I kid, I kid), why not?
The update will come through a Motorola Boot Services update, so be on the lookout. (more…)
Listed at the cheapest price we have seen so far, customers can pick up a Moto G on Verizon’s pre-paid network for only $49.99 through Best Buy.
The device features a 4.5″ HD display, quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear-facing camera, Bluetooth 4.0, 8GB of on-board storage, and runs Android 4.3 “Jelly Bean” with an update to Android 4.4 available. (more…)
