The original Moto G smartphone caught a lot of people’s attention when Motorola launched the phone in 2013. At the time it was uncommon to find a smartphone with a 720p display, a quad-core processor, and other decent specs for under $200.
A lot’s changed in the past few years and there’s no shortage of decent, low-cost phones. But one thing that doesn’t seem to have changed all that much? The Moto G. The 2014 model of the phone had a slight larger display, a slightly better camera, and improved speakers, but not many other improvements.
Now a 3rd-gen model is on the way, and it could be the version that has the kind of specs you’d expect from a mid-range phone in 2015.
Motorola’s expected to officially launch the 2015 Moto G at an event on July 28th, but a series of leaks have given us a pretty good idea of what it will look like. Now a product listing from a Swiss retailer may give us the best look at the new phone to date.
Digitec says the phone features a 5 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 64-bit, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a microSD card slot.
It’s said to run Android Lollipop software, sports a 2,070 mAh battery, and features 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
There have also been rumors suggesting that there could be more than one version of the Moto G, so I wouldn’t be shocked if there’s also a cheaper version with less memory and possibly a less powerful Snapdragon 410 chip.
