Last week, Motorola unveiled to the world a new Android-based smartphone, namely the Moto G, and the dual-SIM variant of the device has just received the necessary approvals from the FCC.Motorola did announce that Moto G would be launched in both single and dual-SIM versions, but it did not provide specific info on when the latter would hit the market.
However, given that the smartphone has already been approved, chances are that it will be released in the near future. We should also note that the dual-SIM Moto G model has been confirmed for two markets out there, namely Brazil and India.
For those out of the loop, we should note that Moto G was unveiled with a 4.5-inch touchscreen display capable of delivering a 720p resolution, as well as with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU inside.
Furthermore, the smartphone features 1GB of RAM inside, along with 8GB and 16GB options of internal memory, and comes with 50GB of free Google Drive storage for two years.
On the back, the new mobile phone sports a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording videos in HD resolution. There is also a 1.3MP front camera included, so that users can make video calls while on the go.
The specifications list of the device also includes LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth capabilities, built-in GPS receiver, and the usual set of sensors.
Moto G is powered by a 2070mAh battery and arrives on the market with Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system. However, Motorola plans on making the Android 4.4 KitKat update available for it in January.
Motorola announced that the new device would be released in the United States with a price tag of $179 (€132) attached to it, contract-free, which makes it a very appealing device, as UnwiredView notes. However, it remains to be seen whether the dual-SIM variant will be priced similarly or a bit higher.
