Motorola’s Moto G smartphone is an inexpensive smartphone that normally sells for $179 and up. But if you’re not content with the nearly vanilla version of Android that you normally get with the Moto G… now you can pick up a version that comes with a 100% stock version of Android.
Google is now selling a Moto G Google Play Edition phone through the Google Play Store. It still costs $179 and up.
The phone comes with 8GB to 16GB of storage and isn’t locked to a carrier or a service plan. It’ll work with GSM carriers including T-Mobile and AT&T in the United States.
The Moto G features a 4.5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, a 5MP rear camera and 1.3MP front-facing camera and has a 2070mAh battery. It supports WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It ships with Android 4.4 KitKat software.
Like other Google Play Edition devices, software updates will be handled by the phone maker… but since the Moto G Google Play Edition will run software that’s virtually the same as what you get on a Nexus device, it shouldn’t take long for Motorola to adopt future Android updates to run on the phone. Oh yeah, Google also owns Motorola Mobility.
