Motorola is a darling of anyone interested in low cost Android devices. While its Moto G and Moto E smartphones may not be that cheap in most emerging markets where they are not available officially, they’ve been flying off the shelves in countries where the former Google-owned device maker has availed them. Like in India and Brazil.
Motorola has an event on July 28th and is widely expected to reveal the third generation Moto G.
However, before that eventually happens, we believe we have all that we need to know about the upcoming Moto G 2015 thanks to a listing on a Switzerland-based retailer’s site. Adding that to earlier information we got from @evleaks, our simple sum is solved.
Here’s what expected of the Moto G 2015 from the spec angle:
- A 5 inch Full HD (1080p) display
- A Snapdragon 610 processor clocked at 1.7 GHz and backed by an Adreno 405 GPU
- 8 GB internal storage (expandable) and 2 GB RAM
- A 2070 mAh battery
To keep to its budget offering roots, the third generation Moto G will cost about $245 in Europe. That’s about the same price as another mid-range favourite of ours, the Alcatel One Touch Idol 3.
We have just a week to find out from Motorola everything we may have missed from the leaks engine (like clarity on the cameras pixel count) about this year’s Moto G. Who knows? We may even get to see a refresh of the Moto X 2014 at the same event. What with the X’s trademark MotoMaker customization option rumoured to be available for its low cost sibling, the Moto G, as well.
