Moto GMotorola has announced through its social channels that the Moto G will be headed to India, with full launch details to come on Feb. 5, two weeks from today. The Moto G, which arrived internationally in November, has proved popular thanks to its low price — $179 or £135 off-contract — and relatively impressive hardware and features. In our review of the G late last year, we described it as "a lesson to other manufacturers in how to make a good, cheap Android phone." And it's gotten even better with the recent arrival of KitKat on the device.

It's unclear what price point the Moto G will hit when it launches in India, but buyers will surely be hoping for a similarly tempting price tag. With India being a hugely important emerging market for smartphones, the Moto G's launch there could be a major development for Motorola.
