Announced back in September in 2014, the Moto G gen 2 is still a great phone, but Motorola has been speeding up the release schedule for their phones. The time difference between the release of the original Moto G and the gen 2 Moto G is a mere 10 months, meaning if they stick to this schedule – and a leak of a phone purporting to be a gen 3 Moto G shows it’s possible – a third generation Moto G could be announced next month.
The phone shows a similar design to previous models, though the phone now has a strikingly distinct rear mounted block, where LG have been mounting their power and volume keys on the G Series phones for the last few years – though it doesn’t appear that Motorola will be aping that particular design. The phone appears to have a carbon fibre shell, with a centre-mounted camera and Dual-LED flash – apart from that, there’s little else to see.
Spec wise, the Moto G 2015 – apparently model # XT1543 – will come with a Snapdragon ‘S410’ processor, with a 720P display and an 8MP rear camera. The phone will launch with Andorid 5.1.1, with Motorola again doing a stellar job of ensuring they release handsets with the most up to date version of Android on-board.
Release wise, we could see the phone in July, but could stretch anywhere out to September – only time will tell.
