Motorola unveiled a refreshed version of its cheap-and-cheerful Moto G during its live event this morning. The new phone has a number of features that are pretty surprising to see in an entry-level device, like IPX7 waterproofing and a 13-megapixel camera that's claimed to be an improved version of the shooter in the Nexus 6.
Inside, there's a Snapdragon 410 quad-core SoC running at 1.4GHz with Adreno 306 graphics. A 5.5" 720p display shows off Android 5.1.1 in all its glory. The G will be available in two models: one with 8GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM, the other with 16GB of flash and 2GB of RAM. LTE, HSPA+, GSM, and CDMA networks are all supported. For the first time, the G can also be customized through the Moto Maker service, which allows buyers to choose from a variety of front, back, and accent colors.
The new Moto G is available worldwide today at a starting price of $180, unlocked and direct from Motorola. The 16GB model starts at $220.
