Motorola has managed to create a number of really compelling offerings in the last couple of years. The company’s Moto E, Moto G and Moto X lineups are really solid. That being said, both the 3rd-gen Moto G and Moto X are due to arrive soon considering its predecessors launched back in September 2014. Both of these devices have been leaking like crazy over the last couple of weeks, and especially the Moto G handset. Before we jump in and check out a new leak, it is worth mentioning that Motorola has already sent out invites for their July 28th event, where the company might announce one of these two devices, if not both.
That being said, another Moto G leak has surfaced recently. The Moto G (3rd-gen) has appaeared on the Spanish retail site fnac.es, and revealed its specifications, well, at least alleged specs. According to the listing, the phone will sports a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top of it. The 64-bit quad-core SoC clocked at 1.7GHz is also listed on the site, and it seems like this could be the Snapdragon 610 processor by Qualcomm. Keep in mind that the Snapdragon 410 is still very much possible, but we’ll see. This listing also mentoins both 1 and 2GB of the phone, and makes things even more confusing. Is it possible that the Moto G will be available in both those variants? Perhaps Motorola intends to ship the 2GB of RAM variant with the Snapdragon 610 SoC, and the 1GB of RAM variant with the Snapdragon 410 processor? We’ll see. Moving on, this will also be a dual-SIM device and will offer 4G LTE connectivity. The 13-megapixel camera will reportedly be availalbe on the back of the 3rd-gen Moto G, and a 5-megapixel snapper will be available up front. Both 8 and 16GB variants (internal storage) are mentioned as well, and you’ll allegedly be able to expand that via microSD card up to 128GB. The 2,470mAh battery will also be a part of this package, and same goes for Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
The source also lists a 199 Euro price point for this device, it remains to be seen how accurate this info is. There you have it, the Moto G (3rd-gen), though take this info with a grain of salt, as usual. Stay tuned for additional information, we’ll almost certainly see more leaks before the device gets announced.
