There are lots of rumors floating around regarding Motorola’s next smartphone lineup, and it looks like we won’t have to wait too long to find out what Motorola has planned for the next Moto G. According to the Brazilian site Tecmundo, the Moto G will be launched on July 28th and go on sale in Brazil on the same day.
The device is expected to sport a 5 inch 720p display and use the Snapdragon 410 processor. It is thought that there will be two models, one with 8GB of storage and one with 16GB. The former will likely have 1GB of RAM, while the latter could pack 2GB.
As for the camera, we are expecting a 13MP rear facing snapper and a 5MP one on the front. The unit will be powered by a 2470 mAh battery, will include a SD card slot, and support 4G LTE.
According to a recent leak, the Moto G (2015) will come with Moto Maker support.
Rumors about the next gen Moto G have been building for a while and according to a recent leak, the Moto G (2015) will come with Moto Maker support. This means owners could be able to choose different colored back panels, front panels, and accent colors for the metallic camera module.
However not everyone is jumping for joy if these specification turn out to be accurate. The rumored processor in the new Moto G is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. A 64-bit processor with four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.4GHz. It also includes an Adreno 306 GPU. The problem is that this the same processor used by the Moto E, the cheaper sibling of the Moto G. The 4G LTE version of the Moto E uses the Snapdragon 410, however clocked slightly slower at 1.2GHz.
The reality is however, that the Moto E and Moto G are quite different devices. The Moto E has a 4.5 inch display and a 5MP rear facing camera. The Moto G trumps the Moto E in just about every department and even if the processor is the same, that shouldn’t be a worry for Moto G fans as the Snapdragon 410 is definitely an upgrade from the processor found in the the second gen Moto G.
The first two generations of the Moto G have certainly been well received and I am looking forward to seeing what Motorola is going to do next.
The rumored pricing for Brazil is R$899 which works out at around $286 USD. However that probably isn’t a reflection on the international price as the current Moto G 4G costs R$929, when bought directly from Motorola in Brazil. International pricing is likely to be similar to the second generation Moto G.
The first two generations of the Moto G have certainly been well received and I am looking forward to seeing what Motorola is going to do next especially given all of the recent leaks, but what do you think? Are you looking forward to the new Moto G?
