Water-resistant Motorola Moto G (2015) to be announced and launched on July 28

According to Brazilian website TecMundo, July 28 is when Motorola will officially announce its third-generation Moto G smartphone, which is likely going to be known as the Moto G (2015). What's more, the website says the handset will be available starting the same day, which could mean that a US launch is also scheduled for late July.

Reportedly, prices for the new Moto G will start at 899 BRL in Brazil, being similar to the prices of the Moto G (2014). Thus, we expect the new handset to cost as low as $179.99 in the US.

As previously reported, the Moto G (2015) should sport a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, while being powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor. Other features seemingly include a 5 MP front-facing camera, a 13 MP rear camera, a 2470 mAh battery, and microSD card support. It's said that there will be a Moto G (2015) version with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory, and another one with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. Interestingly, TecMundo has it that the new Moto G is water-resistant (IPx7-certified, thus not just splash-proof like the older model), but we have to wait for the official announcement to be sure of that.

In the US, the Moto G (2015) will likely be compatible with Moto Maker, allowing customers to personalize its looks to their heart's will. So, who's looking forward to buying the new Moto G?

NO REMOVABLE BATTERY = FAIL
NO FINGERPRINT SCANNER = FAIL

It's an entry level phone priced under $199 full retail. What are you expecting? These specs seem legit for that price. You must out of your mind to think other wise.

It should catch up to chinese phones that have good spec/price ratio, like the original Moto G did !

Actually the battery on the the previous moto g wasn't that hard to remove.. It seems like it's basically the same design

In my opinion it was imperative for Motorola to have a 2 GB memory version of the phone

What about a removable cover like the 2014 and 13 models? The Moto maker part might mean you can't change the back or perhaps they let you change it anyway even after some customization. Also let's see how long it takes moto to launch the new G beyond just a few countries. Australia still hasn't gotten the new E, dispite moto saying it will launch here.

In the last few pics, it looks like a soft metallic silver...that would be wonderful, especially with waterproofing and Micro SD. Removable battery WOULD have been convenient, but you can't win them all. Let's see what comes of this...
