Marking its return to the UK smartphone scene, Motorola looks set to release a new mid-range handset, with the Motorola Moto G launch event set for November 13.
With the Motorola Moto G having leaked last week aboard prematurely outed retailer advertising materials, the phone has taken a step closer to reality, with Moto G branded event invites having now been issued to the media.
Offering no further details on the phone, the invite, which is adorned with the hashtag #MotoG acts as a simple ‘Save the date’ notification.
While the manufacturer, which was recently bought out by Google, has not introduced a new smartphone to the UK for some time, Motorola earlier this summer unveiled the Motorola Moto X, a new high-end Android handset exclusive for UK markets.
Based on recent Motorola Moto G leaks, the phone will be a middling affair, with a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor lining up alongside a 4.5-inch 720p HD display.
Although a notable step back from the flagship likes of the Google Nexus 5, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, the reportedly Android 4.3 Jelly Bean powered handset will also benefit from a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities.
With a 1.3-megapixel secondary snapper expected to feature up front, the Motorola Moto G specs sheet has been tipped to be rounded off by 8GB of storage and a water repellent coating similar to that found on last year’s Motorola Razr i.
Although the phone’s features list might not be the most ground-breaking, according to a leaked Phones 4u product listing, the handset will retail for just £135 on a SIM-free basis, a price that instantly makes it a more tantalising option.
