Google finally made its Google Play Moto G edition available for purchase. Many rumors have indicated this, so we can’t say we are completely surprised. Google hasn’t revealed that it will make this move like it was doing it before, but it claims this will be great addition to its current lineup. As of now, you can find the Google Edition Motorola Moto G available through US Play Store. This is a great opportunity for those who have been waiting for this smartphone to be made available for purchase.
Moto G is still considered to be a low-cost smartphone and that’s why the new Google Play Edition will follow it. It will have the same price you’ve already seen at the other retailers that have been offering the original Moto G version. Through the US Google Play Store, you can get this smartphone for $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB model. Because the difference is only $20, my advice is to take the 16GB model for getting that additional and useful storage.
The device is running on the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat OS version. You can find the Google Play Edition available in black and according to the official statement, it will leave the warehouse 1-2 days after the order is placed.
The Google Play Edition Moto G isn’t different than the original Moto G. It has exactly the same hardware configuration which features 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, Adreno 305 GPU, 8/16 storage capacity and 1GB of RAM. The other features that make this smartphone good are its 4.5-inch screen, which boosts 1280×720 screen resolution. The technology behind the display is IPS LCD. This handset is also equipped with average main camera of 5 mpix and secondary camera with 1.3 mpix. The 2,070 mAh battery will go through a day without recharge.
All in all, the only difference you will find from the standard Moto G model and the Google Play Edition is that the second runs on the newest Android version. This could bring few more additions to the applications which Google imported with the new OS. If you want to purchase the newest Moto G edition you can visit the official Play Store website and place your order. Through the official website, you can find all the information you need for how to purchase it.
