The next iteration of Motorola’s Moto G is indeed the real deal. Dubbed as the Moto G2, fresh leaks on the specifications of the device have appeared online since last week.
9to5Google reports that the phone will ship with a 1.2Ghz quad-core processor, an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB RAM, a 5-inch 720p screen, an 8 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front camera, 8GB internal storage, and Android 4.4.4 KitKat.
The price tag is rumoured to be around 250 Euro (equivalent to RM 1068), which is twice the amount of the first-gen Moto G at launch and 25% more expensive than the current Moto G LTE. The retail price of the phone was leaked by an unknown retailer, who claims that it was given to them by Motorola. The retailer also mentioned that the Moto G2 will launch on 10 September 2014.
In addition, Ausdroid posted a photo of the Moto G2 listing in an Australian retailer’s inventory database. The image not only shows that the Moto G2 comes with 8GB internal storage, but also a microSD card slot. The specifications list also mentioned that the Moto G2 will feature Dual-SIM support.
GSMarena says that some retailers may get the handset as early as the end of August. The Moto G2 might make an appearance and showcase at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany, but Motorola is yet to make announcements regarding its plans at IFA.
