Google owned Motorola announced its latest and affordable handset Moto G back in November 2103. Since then the Indian customers, awestruck with the attractive pricing of the device, has been waiting for its arrival in the Indian market. Rumors back then were that the device would be launched within January. Sadly it turns out to be false after all.
But worry not, as Motorola India has now posted a status on both Facebook and Twitter which hints at the officially announcement of the smartphone on February 5th. The company's status and tweet which was posted just a couple of hours ago both reads, "Moto G launch details for India will be announced on February 5. Stay tuned!"<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" data-cards="hidden" lang="en"><p>Moto G launch details for India will be announced on February 5.

The most anticipated Android smartphone from last year, comes with a 4.5-inch bright and vivid LCD display offering a resolution of 1280 x 720pixels and a pixel density of 329 ppi.
It also has a waterproof nano-coating inside and out, making the phone rugged. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and comes coupled with 1GB of RAM. The Moto G runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system. But before you jump into any conclusion, Motorola has clarified that they will be rolling the Android 4.4 Kitkat update soon for the device.
The smartphone comes with 8GB and 16GB storage variants. The primary camera can shoot images in 5MP while the secondary camera is good for 1.3MP images.
The Moto G is stuffed with a 2,070mAh battery, which will last all day, claims Motorola.
The company has not disclosed the price of the device as of now but you can expect the 8GB variant of the Moto G at Rs. 14,000. The advent of the smartphone at this price point might make the domestic smartphone makers more competitive. While Samsung would have a healthy player at the mid-range smartphone market.
