Motorola Moto G gets Google Play Edition

Written by Andre Yoskowitz (Google+) @ 15 Jan 2014 12:17

Motorola Moto G gets Google Play Edition Even though the device was practically stock Android to begin with, Google is now selling a Google Play Edition version of the Moto G.
The Play Edition will offer a fully stock Android 4.4, and remove the three or four Motorola apps that were pre-installed with the device (even though those apps were excellent). The current Moto G runs on Android 4.4, as well.

Priced at $179 for the 8GB and $199 for the 16GB model, the prices are exactly the same as the Motorola models. The devices will work on AT&T and T-Mobile and are U.S.-only.

The device has a 4.5-inch 720p display, a mid-range 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400, 1GB RAM and no LTE support.
