Motorola readying Nexus 4-style wallet-friendly phone for Europe?

Motorola readying Nexus 4-style wallet-friendly phone for Europe?“Affordable” and “high-end” are two words/phrases that go down incredibly well with mobile consumers, as evidenced by the buying frenzy that surrounded the LG-built Google Nexus 4.

Fresh rumour winds bring tales of a similar device from US manufacturer Motorola, one that’s relatively high-end and easy on the old wallet.

The news comes via Spanish-language site ADSL Zone (get your translation devices out), with credit going to sources within carriers.

They’re saying that the much-discussed Moto X, once described as a “real game changer” but more recently assigned the moniker Moto Yawn (by us, admittedly), will actually focus on the US market.

Over in Europe, Motorola’s big push will come in the form of a wallet-friendly phone with a price tag of “less than 250 euros” – even cheaper than the Nexus 4.

Rumoured specs for the €250 Motorola phone include a 4.5in HD display, quad-core processor, and 8MP camera with 1080p video recording.

Presumably it’ll be sold through Google Play, with whatever the latest version of Android happens to be at the time. At present it’s Jelly Bean (Android 4.2), though Jelly Bean 4.3 and Key Lime Pie (Android 5.0) are supposedly just around the corner.

What do you think? Are you excited by the prospect of more Nexus 4-style shenanigans, or would you rather have the flagship Moto X?

The N4 was horribly overhyped. And there really is no shortage of wallet-friendly Androids - every flagship after 4 months, e.g. :)

Give us something new.

Brilliant, can you also bring out a 4" (or less) version with all the rest of the spec being the same for under 200 euros then? Not everyone wants/needs a phablet
