Motorola Moto G 2014 (2nd Gen) Announced with 5-inch Display, Better Specs



Alongside the flagship Motorola Moto X 2014, the company has just announced the Moto G 2014, the second generation Moto G smartphone with some good improvement in the specs, although Motorola has kept the aggression as it was earlier for setting a price for this device. The new Moto G although carries a lot of new and improved specs, there is no good increase in the pricing as Motorola is going to sell it for $179.99.

The new Moto G comes with a 5-inch HD display (IPS) and it has got the Gorilla Glass screen protection. Above and below the display, there’s the stereo speakers which makes it quite different from the predecessor and this now looks quite similar to that of the Moto E. The chipset is not changed, as the new Moto G too carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 power along with Adreno 305 GPU and 1GB of RAM. Storage wise, there are two variants carrying 8GB and 16GB of internal storage and there is a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. The back cover can be removed, and that exposes the area to place the MicroSD card.

The device will run Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, and Motorola has promised an update to Android L in the near future. The OS has the stock ROM but some good Motorola inclusions such as voice commands. The Moto G has a 8-megapixel f/2.0 camera on the rear side, while on the front there is a 2-megapixel snapper and Motorola has added the functionality of using volume rocker keys to work as a shutter button.

Moto G 2014

Just like the new Moto X, the Moto G too has a curved body which converges from center to sides on the back, thickness from 11mm becomes 6mm near the corner. The device has a 2080 mAh battery under the hood, and Motorola has announced an external battery as well, for the price of $39.99. Although the Moto X is going to come later during this month, Motorola has decided to make this smartphone available from tonight in United States, India, France, UK, Brazil, Germany and Spain. This will be followed by more markets later this year.

The pricing set by Motorola for the Moto G 2014 is $179.99, and in India this is going to be sold for Rs. 12,999 making this one of the good mid-range products giving a stock Android experience, and clearly a good choice for those who prefer a smartphone from a well known brand.
