Motorola to sell Nexus 4-like smartphone for CA$340?


Motorola is reportedly working on its own version of the Google Nexus 4. The idea behind the device would be to offer an affordable smartphone with similar specifications and a similar price without it being a real Nexus device. According to Spanish-language ADSLZone, the new smartphone would be aimed primarily at Europe where it would sell for less than €250 (about CA$340).

The report adds  the smartphone would come with a quad-core processor, a display measuring at least 4.5-inch, 2GB of RAM and an 8MP camera capable of 1080p video. Unlike the upcoming Moto X, it will not be offer the same customization options.

ADSLZone‘s sources have told it that the mysterious smartphone will likely go on sale before the end of the year.

Could this be none other than the Motorola DVX, a rumoured entry-level Motorola smartphone? It is certainly possible but that price point would need to come down some more if it really is aimed at emerging markets. At the same time, that price might work in Europe and help Motorola re-establish itself there even as it aims the Moto X at North America. It could be offered alongside a more expensive Google Nexus 5 even as the Nexus 4 is discontinued.

Until more information comes to light about this mysterious device, take this rumour with a healthy pinch of salt.
