Motorola launch new budget smartphone Moto G15th November 2013
Motorola has this week released a brand new budget smartphone entitled the Moto G, and it comes with features consumers typically expect on the more expensive models.
British customers will be able to get their hands on the Google-powered Moto G contract-free for just £135.
It comes with a 4.5-inch high-definition screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and operates on Android 4.3, which is also known as Jelly Bean.
Motorola also included both a five-megapixel and 1.3-megapixel cameras, a choice between 8GB and 16GB of storage and a selection of coloured plastic backs to choose from.
The Google-owned company may have chosen a great time to enter the budget smartphone market too, as analysts predict it is an area set for growth as new waves of adopters look to pick up a device.
"This wave is characterised by consumers looking to get their first smartphone at the cheapest price they find," said Francisco Jeronimo, a mobile device analyst at consultancy IDC.
"They don't have the need nor the money to afford the most advanced smartphones, as the first wave of adopters had."
