More retailers caught posting pre-launch Moto G info


Tomorrow marks the arrival of Motorola’s latest smartphone, with the company having scheduled an event to debut the Moto G. As the story on this handset has really started coming together over the past several weeks, we’ve had the opportunity to check out a lot of leaked info and form a pretty good understanding of this hardware in advance. We’re down to the wire now, and as we wait for the Moto G to go official, there are a couple last-minute retailer gaffs that are helping us sure-up our expectations.

Just as we saw a listing for the phone appear early on Amazon’s UK site, retailers Phone House and Tesco have seen their own Moto G listings discovered on their sites in advance of the model’s launch.

For one, the pricing is now looking consistent; Amazon had the phone for what worked out to about $255, and the Tesco pricing is more like $238, so this is almost certainly the type of range we’re looking at – in the UK, at least.

We also see some familiar features pop up, with these postings confirming hardware details like the 326ppi 4.5-inch 720p display and 8GB storage. It looks like the Moto G will have just a single gigabyte of RAM, but considering its budget makeup, that’s not entirely surprising.

Check back with us tomorrow to get the full story on the Moto G’s official launch.
