The refreshed version of Motorola’s really value Moto G is coming over to Malaysia really soon courtesy of Brightstar.
When the Moto G was launched in November last year, it wowed everyone with it’s really value pricing. All skepticism that us here in Malaysia wouldn’t be getting a similar price was put to rest when it hit our shores earlier this year, and at a pretty decent price of RM698 for the 8GB version and RM798 for the 16GB version.
So with the updated version of the Moto G, what can we expect? Specification wise, it’ll still retain almost everything the original Moto G had. So everything from the Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch 720p display, 5MP rear camera and a 2070mAh battery still remains the same. So what the heck do we get in this refresh anyway you might ask? Well just one simple addition, which is LTE connectivity. And will we still be getting the same value for money price? Well at RM799, it only costs RM1 more than the 16GB version of the Moto G so it might seem so. However that price isn’t for a 16GB LTE version. Instead it’s for the 8GB LTE version as there isn’t a 16GB version. Not much of an issue though with the microSD slot it comes with. As for the RM100 more you’d have to pay for LTE, considering it’s still a sub-RM1000 LTE enabled phone, we think it’s still a decent enough buy.
And in case you’re wondering about accessories, you’ll also be able to get the Flip cover and Cover shell as well, both going for RM129 and RM69 resepctively. When is the Moto G be available? It’s hitting our shore on July 11, so get your wallets ready.
