What the heck is this “Moto G,” Motorola?

Project Ara may be dominating the Motorola news today, but for as interesting as that concept design is, we get a little more excited about devices that are more on the cusp of actually launching. As such, we’ve been looking forward to this DVX, presumed to be a more affordable alternative to the Moto X, and aimed at different markets. But now there’s a new model on our radar that already has a very compelling name: just what could Motorola be up do with this Moto G?

The name Moto G is popping up today after Motorola updated its US site to prominently feature the model’s name, though that change has subsequently been reverted. While this is the first time we’ve told you about the name, it actually already surfaced a little earlier this month, after being discovered in a Motorola trademark filing.

Presumably, that “G” means Google in one form or another, but what does that spell for the hardware itself? Will the Moto G be something like the DVX, but sold through Google? Would it be closer to Moto X hardware, and maybe something more like a Google Experience model?

Right now, all trails are hitting dead ends, but while we lack details, that Moto G name itself is looking pretty solid. Now we just have to find the phone that goes with it.
