On Tuesday, we told you that Motorola had trademarked the name Moto G. This led to speculation that a Google Edition version of the Motorola Moto X was coming while others heard that it was a device heading to Verizon. According to a source said to be close to Google's wholly owned subsidiary, the Moto G is none other than the Motorola DVX. For those unaware, this is a low priced smartphone with different colored backs that can be swapped, and with looks that immediately call to mind a smaller version of the Moto X.
Expected to be launched globally with a focus on emerging markets, the device is equipped with a 4.5 inch LCD screen and is powered by Motorola's X8 Computer System . Supporting a dual SIM setup, the unit would be priced between $200 and $250 off contract. We expect to see the Motorola DVX (aka the Moto G?) launch before the year is through.
