Moto G teased as a global phone debuting on Nov. 13

Motorola(s goog) looks ready to take the next step towards wider distribution of its new handsets. The company sent “save the date” emails to tech press that included a #MotoG hashtag which is already making the rounds on Twitter. November 13 is the date we should save. Presumably, the Moto G will be a global phone based on the company’s corresponding tweet on Monday which says “hello” in multiple languages.

Motorola hasn’t offered any additional details on the handset, but I’m expecting a phone similar to the Moto X that’s currently available only in the U.S. I’d be surprised, however, if the Moto G was available in custom options like the Moto X is; at least for AT&T(s t) customers currently.

GSM Arena posted alleged specifications for the Moto G last Friday suggesting the phone will have a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 5 megapixel rear camera, 4.5-inch screen with 1280 x 720 resolution, and HSPA+ — not LTE — connectivity. Those specs differ from noted tipster @evleaks, who tweeted the following on Friday:

It’s entirely possible that both leaks are accurate: Perhaps Motorola is launching not just a single device but a range of handsets for the international market.
