When it was originally announced, the first-gen Moto G was incredibly popular as it offered a solid Android experience and incredible value for money and this year’s version of the handset looks set to continue this trend. The 2015 Moto G has already previously leaked in renders and alleged images / video but today’s leak clearly shows a handset that looks like the Moto G in all its glory.
According to the latest leak, the Moto G 2015 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor and 2GB RAM, although a previous report suggests there could be two models, one with 1GB RAM and the other with 2GB. Like the Moto G, it’ll run the latest Android OS out of the box – which, in this case, is Android 5.1.1 Lollipop – and should be updated to Android M once Google’s next platform launches later this year.
Also, the images themselves are clearly of a pre-release handset meaning we may see some design tweaks and changes as the handset nears launch. The screen size isn’t known for sure but based on these images, we’d probably expect a display measuring 5.0-5.2 inches in size.
Based on previous leaks, we can expect the Moto G (2015) to sport a 5.0-inch 720p HD display with a choice of two storage options – 8GB and 16GB – which are both expandable. On the back, the Moto G is expected to sport a 13MP rear camera with a 5MP front facing snapper and the handset will be powered by a removable 2470mAh battery.
The Moto G (2015) has been the subject of many rumours recently, including one that claimed that the handset will be customisable through Motorola’s Moto Maker. If accurate, this will mean that owners can choose and customise back panels, front panels and accent colours for the camera module and should result in a truly unique smartphone.
Motorola (or Lenovo, if you will) are expected to unveil the Moto G (2015) on July 28th with a release the same day in Brazil. The handset is expected to retail for R$899, which works out at around $286 US but based on the international pricing for the Moto G 4G, it’s likely we’ll see a launch price similar to the second-generation Moto G.
