Motorola's Moto G spotted on Amazon UK, commands an enticing £160 ($256) price tag

A Motrola Amazon UK listing for theupcoming budget-friendly Moto G has appeared, touting a ratherenticing price tag of £160, or about $256 for those of youstateside. Considering that consumer electronics are often waypricier on the ol' island (Nexus 5 costs £300 ($480) vs $350 in theUS), it may not be too far-fetched to assume that pricing willdiffer. Unfortunately, the page doesn't give up the looks of thedevice, and features no photos whatsoever.

Thecurrent list of leaked specifications on the Moto G reads aquad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8226 with Adreno 305 GPU,a 4.5-inch 720p screen (329ppi) and, possibly, Android 4.4 KitKat.It's got 8GB of native storage, and though the amount of RAM memoryon board remains a mystery, our guesstimate points towards a 1GBstick. The rest of the presumed specs include a 5MP/1.3MP cameras onthe rear and front, respectively, along with Bluetooth 4.0 and 3GHSPA+ connectivity. Should these indeed pan out, we expect Motorolato reap success with the Moto G, the listing for which, by the way,carries the old DVX/XT1032 naming, for whatever reason. It'sinteresting to note that some of the above specs were seeminglyre-confirmed by anXT1032 GFXBench entry we told you about just hours ago.

The Moto G is going to be announcedon November 13th in SãoPaulo, Brazil, and you'll be able to join in over a livestream. Seeing as the Amazon listing points to a November 14threlease, this could mean that many thousands Moto G units are alreadyen route to your favorite shopping destination.

Sort of want. I'm attempting to trade my old ATT Galaxy Note 2 for a Moto X right now. At this rate I might just sell it for $300 and buy a Moto G. The biggest gap in the specs for me is the lack of LTE. If it wasn't for that I'd be VERY excited right now.

I was planning on getting a Sony Xperia V... but this Moto G looks awesome and is cheaper... I hope there´s an option for expandable memory and hopefully the 5mp rear camera is good enough for me

Snapdragon 400 with Adreno 305? Very nice! Might match the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC Mini in performance with those internals if A7 cores aren't too much weaker.
