Moto G price revealed as Amazon UK listing goes live before being pulled
Motorola has already teased its upcoming smartphone, the Moto G, which is set to launch on November 13. Now, the launch price of smartphone has been revealed thanks to an online listing on Amazon UK.

The Motorola Moto G aka Motorola DVX/XT1032 (16GB) was listed at Amazon UK at 159.99 British Pounds, which translates roughly to Rs. 16,100. The Amazon listing also revealed that the Moto G will be available starting November 14 and clearly mentions that the price is for a factory unlocked phone, saying "This is a UK SIM free phone." The listing, which was by Amazon and not a third-party retailer, has now been taken down.

In addition, GSM Insider spotted the Motorola XT1032 aka Motorola Moto G on GFX benchmark database. The benchmark database reveals some of the specifications of the Moto G like a 1.2GHz quad-core Cortex A7 Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8226 processor with Adreno 305 GPU. The Moto G is also seen running Android 4.4 KitKat, which is contrary to earlier reports which had hinted the Moto G would run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

Earlier leaked specifications of Motorola Moto G include a 4.5-inch HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass; 5-megapixel rear camera; 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera; 8GB inbuilt storage (no word on expandable storage support), Bluetooth 4.0.

Last week, Motorola in an attempt to build hype for its Moto G announcement, offered a new teaser website dedicated to the smartphone.

Apart from revealing November 13 as the announcement date for its upcoming smartphone, it also hinted at launch countries, with a multi-language salutation that included 'namaste', leaving us quite positive of an India launch.
