Although the general shape and look of the phones will largely be the same, the camera and Moto “dimple” housing on the back will be changed.
Pricing hasn’t been revealed, but the first and second generation Moto G smartphones have each had starting prices of $180 at launch.
Assuming that the leaked photo is for real, we can learn quite a few about the design of the next-gen Moto G.
The video, which we have mirrored here, confirms much of what we have heard about the Moto G and also may lay to rest some of the false rumors going around.
Even though everyone is snapping selfies these days, LED flash on the secondary camera is still pretty rare, but the next-gen Moto X seems to be taking advantage of one. Motorola is yet to clarify if this price reduction is permanent, but given the lack of demand for its new offering, we won’t be surprised if it is.
It remains to be seen whether this prediction comes true, considering that the newer G3 and G4 are rumored to be not receiving Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Though, there is no official confirmation from the company yet, in any case everything will be revealed on July 28 at the company’s media event where full details of the device to be unveiled. The phone will also allegedly sport a 5.5-inch screen size and come with a QHD AMOLED display.
In addition, the Moto G 2015 is expected to get IPx7 water resistance, which would allow the device to handle slight submersion or rain and moisture exposure. The next two months will be very exciting for Android smartphone buyers, and there will be plenty of choices.
However, a couple of weeks after the update was released, AT&T announced that it had decided to suspend the roll out.
The huge leaps in specifications seen in Moto G3 over G2 had let to reports (including one on RTN) that the new model will be priced considerably higher than the “usual” price range for the Motorola midranger.
