The Moto G smartphone for budget conscious users will arrive later this week but the list of specs and features is not official yet. Now the handset has been spotted on Amazon UK but the page was quickly removed, as it usually happens in such cases.

Fortunately one of Pocket-lint's tipsters known as ChrisM made it all public so now the Moto G's price and other details are almost certain. According to this source, the SIM-free 16 GB black Moto G will cost £159.99 (roughly $256 USD) and will be launched on November 14.

The specs list confirms previous leaks, mentioning a 4.5-inch HD screen, quad-core processor (most likely a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with Adreno 305 graphics) and, as mentioned above, 16 GB of storage.

The Amazon UK product page also claimed that Motorola's upcoming handset will feature "advanced Android with guaranteed upgrade" so the Moto G should arrive with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean preloaded and the KitKat update will follow soon after the official release.

Considering the usual price gap between Europe and North America, the Moto G should reach the United States for less than $200. The official confirmation of all these leaks should arrive in a day or two, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
