New Motorola Moto G brings a 8mp camera , 5" display and a MicroSD card slot for $179

The old Moto G set the bar for mid range android devices . The phone , which started out at $179 was a popular choice among the tech crowd who wanted a minimalistic design , good battery life and a unbeatable price for a phone , if launched by another company , could have cost them about $300 . The Old Moto G  , due to Google's tight restrictions about expandable storage , lacked a MicroSD card slot , but that error was fixed later on  . The old Moto G,which is almost a year old now required a refresh , so today Motorola launched its new "Moto G" at a super secret meeting at its headquarters in Chicago . The new Moto G borrows some new features from the old model which include the Snapdragon 400 processor , and the same display resolution -although the screen size is much bigger now . the phone has been given a upgrade in the storage department and it now has the much needed SD card slot in the basic 8GB version too . The phone however lacks LTE , so the recently launched (2013 Moto G 4G) wont be left in the cold . The new phone also features a upgraded camera (8mp) and a upgraded secondary camera (2mp) and dual front firing speakers as well as a splash proof coating . The phone start shipping from today and  will cost $179 for the 8GB version (with MicroSD card expansion) and $199 for the 16GB version with expandable storage . (more pictures below)
