Refreshed Moto G keeps cheap price, adds larger screen In addition to their other higher-profile launches, Motorola also announced the refresh of their popular Moto G mid-range device.
The incredibly cheap yet serviceable device will still sell for $179.99 unlocked, but with improved specs. The phone now has a 5-inch 720p display with Gorilla Glass, a Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, dual SIM capabilities, 8GB internal storage and a microSD slot for 32GB expansion.

Stock Android 4.4 is pre-loaded (with some basic Moto apps that are helpful), and Motorola has already guaranteed an update to Android 5.0 Lemon Meringue Pie.

Dual cameras, double stereo speakers, Bluetooth 4.0 BLE and 720p HD video capture are the rest of the upgrades for the mid-range device. The 2070mAh battery is good for one day of mixed usage, says Motorola.

Available now for $180 unlocked, in the U.S., India, France, the UK, Brazil, Spain and Germany.
