Motorola Moto G with Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor

Motorola’s newest addition, the Moto G, powered by an all-in-one Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor, is an exceptional entry-level smartphone packing high-end smartphone features while being exceptionally priced at just $179, unlocked and without contract.

Get-It-Done Performance

With a Snapdragon 400 processor at its heart, the Moto G is designed to be a multi-tasking machine that lets you do it all, from sending emails to streaming video, without compromising speed. The Moto G also promises all-day battery life that lets you go longer between charges. It will run on the powerful Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system with Motorola guaranteeing an update to the latest Android 4.4 KitKat by January 2014.

Moto G owners also get an extra 50GB of Google Drive storage for free for two years, so you can keep and share photos, movies and more, on top of the standard 15GB. And with Motorola Migrate, all your photos, videos, contacts and even your call and text history can be sent wirelessly from your old phone to your new one.

Gorgeous Display

The Moto G boasts the sharpest 4.5-inch HD edge to edge display in its class, stretching to all four corners of the phone for great gaming, video and photo display. A 5-MP rear camera and 1.3-MP front-facing camera captures great photos and HD video for quick sharing with just three clicks.

Great Style

You can personalize your Moto G with interchangeable backs, called Shells, available in a variety of colors, textures and types. Coordinate your Shell style with a pair of SOL REPUBLIC JAX headphones in matching colors for a cool, custom look while you listen to your favorite songs and find new ones with Moto G’s free FM radio.

The Moto G is priced at $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for 16GB of storage. It will be available from today in Brazil and parts of Europe, including the UK, and will hit the US and the wider world in January 2014. [updated: the Moto G became available in the US at the end of November.
