A report has emerged which claims that the Moto G’s successor, the Moto G2 or the Moto G+1, will be launched on September 10th.
The news comes via GSMArena, who were informed of this by a retailer, which got the information from a Motorola employee.
The new rumor comes just a week after the device’s specifications were spotted at benchmarking site, GFX Bench. It wasn’t the first to report the specs though, a Spanish blog had leaked the information about the phone, in July.
The G2 will sport a 5″ Display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and will run Android 4.4.4 out of the box. The device will have similar internals as the Moto G, with a Snapdragon 400 processor , an Adreno 305 GPU, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage and a 2 Megapixel front camera. The only other upgrade is an 8 Megapixel Camera on the rear.
Here are the rumored Technical Specifications of the Moto G2:
|Display||1280 x 720 pixels (320 DPI)|
|Processor||Quad Core ARM V7 VFPv4 NEON. (Could be the Snapdragon 400)|
|Camera||8 Megapixels rear camera|
The price of the phone has been quoted as €250, which translates to about $335 or Rs. 20,000. The current Moto G sells for $180 or Rs. 10,000, after the recent price drop. Considering this, the G2’s price is quite hefty, with no information on whether it will support 4G LTE or have a micro SD card slot.
