Motorola Moto G to be launched by U.S. Cellular next week?

Already available in the US unlocked, as well as via Verizon and Boost Mobile, Motorola’s affordable Moto G might land at U.S. Cellular in the near future.

According to a screenshot revealed by Android Central, U.S. Cellular will start selling the Motor G to its no-contract customers on February 10 - for a price that hasn’t been disclosed. Verizon is currently selling the Moto G off contract for only $99.99, so maybe US Cellular’s version will be priced similarly.

The Moto G should have Android 4.4 KitKat on board when it launches at U.S. Cellular and, of course, it'll bring all the nice features we’re already familiar with: a 4.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 5MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB / 16GB of internal memory, and a 2,070 mAh battery. At less than $200, no contract required, the Moto G is a steal, and you’ll have a really hard time finding a better smartphone in the same price range.

As you may have heard, Google agreed to sell Motorola Mobility to Lenovo (subject to regulatory approval) - but this shouldn’t affect current Motorola products in any way.

I love my Moto G. I can't wait until they release a new one later on with 4g and a 5" screen ;) Already received Kit Kat and my phone lasted about 20 hours with Moderate to heavy usage on wifi. The screen was on for 4.5hrs! That was from a battery half full. The first phone I was actually trying to kill the battery on.

I don't see Motorola selling any back "shells" in the market. All they have is the black one that came with the package which sucks.

What are you talking about? The back shell is fine. No different than any other rubberized back shell. What's wrong with it? I'm looking at getting one myself.

I'm talking about the color choices of shells. Where I live, stores only sell Moto Gs with black colored shells but I understand Motorola sell colored shells you can buy seperatley. I wanted the Emerald Green.

Yeah. You have to think of this in a business point of view. If they offered different colored Moto Gs, it would cut into their profits by having to package, ship, meet demand of all the different color variations. By selling them seperately, it is a lot easier to control the sales of the back covers seperately and meet the demand of each one. If they offered the Moto Gs already with the back covers installed, then they would have some of the less popular colors sitting on shelves. They might do it later on when the cost of the handset is cheaper to produce, but as of now, this is the best marketing strategy while still offering a choice to the consumer.
