Motorola has sent out “Save the date” invites for a November 13th event that will see the Google-owned company unveil the Moto G. This is a follow-up to the Moto X, but will reportedly have entry-level specs.

Late last week promotional material surfaced online that indicated the Moto G will have a 1.2Ghz quad-core Qualcomm processor, 4.5-inch display (1280×720 resolution), 5MP rear camera that shoots 720p HD video, 1.3MP front camera, 1950mAh battery, running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.

No word on the official Moto G release date, or if it’s coming to Canada. Considering we were sent an invite there’s a solid chance we’ll see this arrive in time for the big Q4 holiday push. In addition, Motorola has also created a dedicated Moto G website that touts this as a global phone, plus shows that the November 13th announcement will be streamed live online.

Update: Motorola just sent out a Tweet that showed the event will take place in Sao Paulo and be streamed live at 9:00am on November 13th.

    If they really get this out at around $230 this would do insanely well here. This phone would be going up against all the S3 minis, Galaxy Ace II’s and boatload of low end cheap devices. This would be a high quality device at such a price that I would have no problem recommending to people who want a cheap phone.

      this exactly…i’d say at 250 or less it would be a better value than the s4 mini, though both phones have trade offs in diff categories

      Should be $199 tops, and drop accordingly when the nexus 5 drops too.

    I wonder if it will be smaller in height and width compared to Moto X or if they used the same shell with cheaper materials that’s the same size.

    Wtf is Motorola doing? Seriously. Releasing a “Top End” smartphone with a dual core processor in the MotoX. Now they’re releasing an “entry level” phone with an underclocked quad core processor? Those sound like two entry level phones to me. Add on top this new phone won’t even run the latest Google OS, and I have no idea what the Motorola/Google relationship is supposed to be.

    Sounds like a good budget phone. Less than $299 and this thing will sell. I’d rather take this than a mini s4 for sure, sd card is a trade off but the pure(r) Android is gonna run decent on the G.
