Google's budget smartphone Moto G may hit Indian shores in Feb

Google may finally bring its affordable smartphone Moto G to India in February, a month later than the earlier announced launch date.

US-based Motorola, which is now owned by search engine giant Google, today said in a post on Twitter: "Moto G launch details for India will be announced on February 5. Stay tuned!".

Moto G features a 4.5-inch HD display, quad-core speed and Android 4.3 Jellybean with a guaranteed upgrade.

It also features a 5 megapixel rear camera and 1.3 MP front-facing camera. Equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 400 processor, Moto G can play full HD videos.

The handset will also support latest version of Android, KitKat, which is currently available on Nexus 5.

Moto G's 8 GB storage model is priced at USD 179 (about Rs 11,000). The phone's pricing in India, is, however, unclear at this point in time.

Last year in November, Motorola in a blogpost had said: "It (Moto G) will be available in the US, India, the Middle East and more of Asia in early January."
