Motorola Moto G 3

Serial rumour breaker, @evleaks, has recently posted an image of what they claim to be a press shot of the upcoming Moto G. After studying the images, it looks almost identical to the Moto X – even the time and date are very similar to the Motorola released press shots of the X.

Here is an official Motorola Moto X press shot:

And here is the @evleaks images of the Moto G:

There are some very subtle differences between the two above images, there is an extra icon in the status bar of the “Moto G” render, and the way the date is stated is slightly different. Plus the added Verizon logo that is becoming an internet meme that must be included in most leaks. Unless the Moto G is a doppelgänger for the Moto X, then perhaps this particular leak is fake.

However, all is not lost for those looking for some early Moto G rumours, as Cnet UK is reporting that they have been invited to a UK launch event on the 13th of November, which coincides with the Live Stream that Motorola is planning for that day. This raises our hopes that the Moto G will be released in Australia, as previous reports suggested that this mid-priced phone will be only available for developing markets.

Cnet UK further reports that the Moto G will be available through UK retailer Phones4U for 135 pounds ($230).

The specifications of the Moto G were leaked through a retailer:

  • 1.2GHz Qualcomm Quad-Core Processor
  • 4.5″ 1280x720P edge to edge HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass
  • 8GB Storage
  • 5MP Rear Camera with 1.3MP Front-Facing camera – 720P Video @30fps
  • Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, GPS
  • Quad Band, HSPA+
  • Android 4.3
  • Long life battery

You can watch a live stream of the global launch this Wednesday night/Thursday morning here. More information on the Australian times for the live stream are in our previous article.

I feel it’s a fake because of 2 icons in the dock.
1. The phone handset still has the sort of 3D look to it, and not the new ‘flat look’
2. Separate Messenger app and not Hangouts, on a Googlrola device.

the phone is launching on Android 4.3 apparently


Indeed, but with how Google standardizes the icon designs, across Android versions, as a part of app updates, and also does similar with app functionality, and this is a Googlrola device, it feels wrong for it to not be compliant to the new icon design language, and also for it to still have a separate Messenger app, when that app’s functionality has been swallowed by Hangouts which replaces Messenger.
