Ahead of its official unveiling on the 28th of July next week, the Motorola Moto G 2015 has been leaked yet again. This time around, official renders of it have surfaced, along with several interesting specifications such as a 5-inch 1920 x 1080 resolution display and an upper mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 610 processor; a notable upgrade over last year’s Moto G.
These specifications come from Digitec, a Swiss retailer which has listed the Moto G 2015 ahead of its official launch. As the third iteration of Motorola’s highly successful budget lineup, this year’s Moto G is not a mere incremental upgrade over its predecessor; unlike the slightly bump in hardware from the original Moto G to the 2014 model.
The more notable upgrades that the Moto G 2015 bring are a faster Snapdragon 615 processor (over the Snapdragon 400 of the 2014 model) paired with 2GB – instead of 1GB – of RAM and a bump in the display’s resolution from 720p to 1080p. Very welcomed upgrades.
Rounding out the specifications are 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a rather small 2,070mAh battery, which is very odd. The Moto G 2014 has the same battery capacity, and seeing how the 2015 model has a higher resolution display and a more powerful processor, we’re a little sceptical on the legitimacy of these specifications. After all, these information did not come from Motorola itself.
In terms of pricing, the Motorola Moto G 2015 is listed at 235 Swiss franc, which comes up to about RM930. We’ll learn more once the smartphone is officially unveiled on the 28th of July.
