As Motorola’s most successful handset of all time, the Motorola Moto G is one phone that Motorola should be following up, and they seem to be with leaks for the Moto G2 seeping out over the last couple of months. Now the Moto G2 has shown up in the inventory system of an Australian retailer and is expected to launch this month.
Though listed as ‘Coming Soon’ we’ve been advised that the phone is set to launch ‘mid-August’ in Black, but with no events scheduled by Motorola for this month as yet, it’s uncertain whether this is a solid date.
Specs listed for the phone in the system show that previous leaks were quite accurate with the listing showing a 5″ Display, 1.2GHz Quad-Core processor, 8GB on-board storage with microSD card slot and 8MP camera. It seems that just as we saw the Dual-SIM version of the Moto G, we will see the Dual-SIM Moto G2 here in Australia as well.
From the listing it can be assumed that just as the Moto G was released as a 3G only device, the Moto G2 will also arrive with only 3G radios. A follow-up device with LTE could be in the offing down the track though, if Motorola’s release schedule is anything to go by.
Pricing for the phone hasn’t been confirmed at this stageAccording to our source, the Motorola Moto G2 will be selling for between $270 and $299. Whether Motorola make the mid-August release date we’ll soon find out.
