When the clock strikes November 13th, all eyes will be on Motorola and the announcement of their upcoming Moto G. We’ve just learned via Motorola’s Twitter and G+ pages that the device will be launched from Sao Paulo, Brazil. What that might indicate is that it is a mid-range smartphone meant for global emerging markets. Sao Paulo is an unusual venue for a high-profile smartphone launch and we’re hypothesizing that means the specs won’t be blowing anyone away. The tweet from Motorola this morning informed the world of the new launch details and provided a link to a Google+ page where it’s likely more information will be released as the announcement goes down.

Even with the “new” news, we’re still expecting a device that runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, has a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 5 megapixel camera and 8GB of storage. So, “mid-range” might be up for debate, and perhaps we’re reading too much into the launch venue. The good news? We’ll know everything in just 7 days.
