Motorola Moto G Specs leaked out by German retailer the day before the phone's unveiling
The day before Motorola is to introduce the Motorola Moto G, a German retailer let the cat out of the bag. If we were talking about a television series or a movie, we would be screaming "Spoiler Alert" as loud as we could. Considering that there were some conflicting leaks pertaining to the specs for the Moto G, we're interested to take a look at the information that was posted by The Phone House, but since taken down.

According to the retailer, the Motorola Moto G will be equipped with a 4.5 inch screen LCD panel with resolution of 720 x 1280. There is a quad-core 1.2GHz processor under the hood and 1GB of RAM is on board. 8GB of native storage graces the handset which has back and front-facing cameras weighing in at 5MP and 1.2MP respectively. A 2070mAh battery keeps the lights on. The phone features HSPA+ connectivity, but there is no word about LTE support or even if a microSD slot will be available for users of the device.

The Phone House, as we noted, did take down the leak although another retailer, Tesco in Britain, listed the device with a SIM-free price of £149 ($237 USD). Motorola will unveil the phone tomorrow at 9am EST in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

If it cost near rs.12000-15000, it will be a very tuff competitor to Sammy's galaxy core

I think the opposite, if it's dirt cheap it will attack some consumers looking for affordable devices, I can see my sis and brother getting this phone as high schoolers

Why bother unveiling only a mid-range phone. Is Motorola serious at all???

Because its dirt cheap and specks aren't that bad looking, it would compete perfectly with low end Nokia devices in the rest of the world

This isn't a low end device it will only be considered one if it doesn't have a sd card slot but although this doesn't have a sd slot this is still quite good with the 720p display and a good ppi this would really bring up a good competition as long as the price is right

With 8GB of internal memory it better have a sdcard slot if it wants to compete with anything out there.

I would grab one but the 1gb of ram is a deal breaker. My old Galaxy Nexus has that much.
