Moto G comes in GSM variant, which means there would be a specific for US model and a Global one
Ahead of schedule, the Motorola Moto G already began to arrive in the US. The official Motorola blog announced that the GSM variant of its Moto G is available for the US starting today and it will be set for shipping on December 2.
Motorola Moto G comes to the US market contract-free in two variants – 8GB and 16GB that cost, respectively, $179 and $199. There is another purchase decision as well, when it comes to the network support. As we mentioned, the Moto G comes in GSM variant, which means there would be a specific for US model and a Global one, which means you have to decide are you going to use your brand new smartphone outside the US. If you’re not planning to go abroad soon, then the US specific variant is preferable. As for the connectivity of the device, unfortunately, there won’t be 4G LTE support so you’ll have to go with a 3G. Furthermore, the handset can be paired with SIM cards from T-Mobile and AT&T or with third-party cards.
Since the device is arriving a little bit too early, those who purchase it will have to wait few weeks before the KitKat update arrives to their Moto G. Meanwhile they will take advantage of what Android 4.3 Jelly Bean has to offer before the update.
Either way, the device features 4.5-inch HD display with the resolution of 1280×720 pixels and it operates with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor coated at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. Motorola Moto G includes a 5-megapixel rear camera with auto focus and LED flash as well as a 1.3-megapixel front cam. The handset features a Li-Ion 2070 mAh with talk time up to 24 hours without re-charging. Along with its integrated storage of 8/16GB, the device can take advantage of 50GB more of Google Drive storage for free for two years.
