Moto G shows up on Amazon UK, coming at about $270 this Nov. 14th

moto g nov 13

Motorola has not been doing a great job keeping the Moto G secret. The device has been leaked by the official Motorola site, as well as print ads. It is by no means a secret – the announcement is coming and you can even sign up to watch it live. We were sure not much could surprise us anymore, but then the juiciest Moto G leak came from Amazon UK!

The Moto G showed up at Amazon UK’s site momentarily and quickly taken down. Very few specs were displayed and the image was missing, but there is a very sweet bit of news coming from Amazon UK – the price. The affordable device was listed at £159.99, which roughly translates to about $270 US dollars.


Prices may differ once we get the device in the US, but we honestly doubt it will go higher. All in all, this should be a great device to get on a budget when you don’t feel like signing those pesky contracts. What will we get for under $300, though? Let’s see.

Moto G Specifications

  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 4.5-inch HD display
  • 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro
  • 16 GB of internal storage
  • 8MP camera
  • 1,950mAh battery

Now that is one hell of a deal! Amazon UK had the device release date as November 14th, so we don’t have to wait much until we hear more about this phone. In fact, the announcement is only a couple days away (Nov. 13). Let’s stay tuned!

I will definitely buy this as a secondary device if it comes at $250 or less (because, why not?). Would be great for traveling and such. Will you be buying it if it’s this affordable?

    Considering it has to cost almost as much to make and market, it looks like Motogoogle is aiming for market penetration with these prices instead of profit. Amazon model.

    So this is what happened to the Nexus 4 then.

    Android 4.4?! That’d be quite the feat. Hope it’s not a typo.

    Man oh man… 1950mAh non-removable battery? Might as well give it NOTE 3 specs and load gingerbread on the thing… pass

  • ChristianMcC

    I’d probably have gone for this, if it had come out before the N5.

  • Wozn2

    Advanced Android with guaranteed upgrade = ship with 4.2/4.3 and “promise” 4.4 sometime early 2014, which then slips to Q2 2014.

    Same old Moto.

    How could it be that cheap? Don’t forget UK prices include 20% Tax. That’s £128 before tax. That’s astonishing if true

  • Holidayjesus

    Isn’t it supposed to be coming to Republic for $199 too?
