Lenovo launches 2015 Motorola Moto G
After the company’s $2.9 billion buyout by Chinese tech giant Lenovo, Motorola’s Moto G series is staying afloat after all. On Tuesday, the phone maker updated the 2-year-old lineup with two new variants ie. a 16GB model with 2GB of RAM and 8GB model/1GB RAM.
The 3rd-gen Motorola Moto G comes in several colors and packs a 5-inch HD touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. A 1.4GHz quad-core CPU and Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC powers the device while the software segment is run by the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system.
For photography, the latest Moto G sports a 13-megapixel rear camera alongside a dual-tone LED flash and a 5-megapixel secondary camera at the front. The handset comes with a 2470mAh Li-Ion battery and packs support for LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wireless LAN and A-GPS.
Price-wise, the Motorola Moto G (2015) will set you back $187 (8GB model) and $203 (16GB model) if you live in India. The product is available only in 8GB storage in the UK and this goes for £160. More regions are expected to start offering the midranger in the coming weeks.
