Boost Mobile to sell affordable Moto G for $130 on January 14th

Boost Mobile, a no-contract wireless industry leader in US has just announced that the Motorola Moto G will be available on for the subscribers of the carrier from January 14th onwards for just $129.99.


Moto G is Motorola’s first handset to be released by Boost Mobile since 2011 and the company expects to reach subscribers as more as possible by giving the affordable smartphone of the year to its most of the budget-minded consumer-base. Boost Mobile retail stores will be selling the device starting from January 20.

Running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean software, the 4.5-inch Motorola Moto G comes with 720p HD display, which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front camera, WiFi and non-removable 2,070mAh battery. The device comes with the ability to change the back panel with different colors.

Boost mobile will be offering NextRadio app and an extra 50GB of Google Drive storage (for two years) along with the Moto G. The NextRadio app is expected to consume three times lesser battery than other music streaming and radio apps, as it uses the smartphone’s built-in FM receiver instead of internet.

Meanwhile, the Verizon version of unlocked CDMA variant of Moto G is available for $100 at Best Buy. As Motorola is in aggressive pricing spree, it won’t be a surprise if it cut the Boost Mobile Moto G’s price tag further in near future. Whatever, we are pretty sure that the device will receive the latest Android 4.4 KitKat update as announced by the company.
