Motorola had several big announcements today, announcing the release date of the Moto 360 and updating both the Moto G and the Moto X smartphones. The updated Moto G will still feature a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with less than 1GB of RAM, but will now feature a 5-inch display – though, it keeps the 720p resolution.

The Moto G’s camera also gets an upgrade. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. Other changes include stereo sound at the front, and the ability to customise the phone with Motorola Shells. The phone still promises all-day battery life on its 2070mAh battery.–bEp8i_tc

Other hardware specs include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with a microSD card slot (up to 32GB) and Bluetooth 4.0 LE support. The updated Moto G, however, does not have 4G support. Its predecessor did come with a separate 4G model, but that came several months after the original 3G-only release back in November last year.

Running on Android Kit Kat, the new Moto G will come to Australia later this month with a price tag of AU$269 for the 8GB variant.
