Motorola's Budget Moto G Brings a 13MP Camera and 5-Inch HD Display

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Ahead of an event in New York City today, Motorola has finally revealed its new budget-minded Moto G at an event in India, and the specs seem to mirror what was leaked about a week ago on the company’s site.

The Moto G 2015 will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC processor, feature a 5-inch 720P display, and will be available in two versions packing either 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, or 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. If you’re considering either version you’ll want to expand that storage further via the Moto G’s microSD slot since the handset now features the same 13MP camera sensor as the Nexus 6, as well as a 5MP camera up front.

Starting at around £160 for the 16GB model (according to Mobile Fun's just-announced pre-order price) both models also include 4G LTE, a larger 2,470 mAh battery, and IPX7 certification which means that if you drop it in the bathtub, or up to a metre of water, it can stay submerged for about 30 minutes without you having to call Motorola’s support and pretend that your phone “mysteriously just stopped working".
