Motorola Moto G press picture leaks before November 13 launch event

The first official-looking press picture of the Motorola Moto G smartphone has been leaked online.

Ahead of the Moto G’s official launch on November 13, an apparently official press image of the upcoming mid-range handset has appeared.

The press picture comes courtesy of notorious tipster @evleaks and bears the tagline “Almost here.”

Motorola issued a formal save the date notice for the Moto G launch event earlier this month, but offered no further details regarding its supposedly mid-range handset.

It will be the cheaper alternative to the innovative flagship Motorola Moto X, which sadly is a US exclusive and won’t be making its way to UK shores.

From the pictures it seems the Moto G will launch in pink, green, blue and white. It will also feature a smooth contour design with angular detailing at the top.

Motorola Moto G Specs

Motorola Moto G specs leaked at the start of this month, revealing that the smartphone will have a 4.7-inch 720p HD display.

It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, rather than the top end Snapdragon 800 CPU to keep costs lower.

There will be a choice of 8GB or 16GB of internal storage, which is another indicator of the Moto G’s more budget conscious price tag.

The Moto G will also have an 8-megapixel camera in the rear, but we’re unsure of the forward-facing snapper’s specs as yet.

Battery-wise, there’s a 1,950mAh unit, which should offer a fairly average standby time.

Motorola intends to make sure the Moto G is offered for free on a monthly contract basis to make it appealing to consumers.

The Moto X launched in August with DIY cover options and a focus on innovative features and solid design rather than the top-end specs. Some of the Moto X features have made their way into the Google Nexus 5 with Android 4.4 KitKat.
