It seems Motorola is quite fond of latest Android version Kitkat and is keen to update all of it’s smartphone line up with it. The standard single SIM Moto G had already recieved Android Kitkat update, however the Dual SIM version still had Jelly Bean. A Malaysian blog has reported that the Dual SIM Moto G has started getting the much awaited Android Kitkat update. The build version of the new update is 171.44.31.en.03 while the download size if 230.7 MB to be precise. Although Motorola has not officially declared the Kitkat update for Dual SIM Moto G but it seems the update will soon be rolled out worldwide.
Android 4.4.2 KitKat update for Dual SIM Moto G brings with it Project Svelte optimizations, new Dialer app, updated Hangouts with SMS/MMS support, updated Google Now and the latest version of Google’s Photo gallery with Auto Awesome feature, if not installed already.
While the standard single SIM Moto G took some time to get Kitkat update, the Dual SIM version is getting the same within 2 weeks of it’s official launch. That’s great! The Moto G Dual SIM recently went official in India on Flipkart and within 1 hour went out of stock. The main reason for such a frenzy is that a Snapdragon quad core phone from Motorola for $180 or Rs. 12,000 is a steal.
Moto G boasts of a 4.5-inch touchscreen and runs pure Android Jelly Bean 4.3 without any custom skin. A 5MP primary camera with LED flash rests on the rear side, while a 1.3MP webcam has been fitted on the front. It is powered by a quad core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM and a 2070mAh battery.
