There's a Motorola event scheduled for September 4, and we're pretty sure that a successor to the hugely-popular Moto G smartphone will be announced there, along with a handful of other gadgets. Need further proof? Well, how about a photo of the Motorola Moto G2, as the phone will probably be called, in its retail packaging?
The image, which just surfaced on the internet, seems to confirm that retailers are receiving the first batches of the new smartphone. In fact, the photo allegedly comes from the warehouse of Flipkart – one of India's largest online stores. This leads us to believe that the Motorola Moto G2 will be released really soon after its official unveiling, possibly by September 10.
Price-wise, we're expecting the Moto G2 to be about as affordable as its predecessor. For those needing a refresher, last year's Moto G retailed for as low as $179 at launch, and that without a need for a long-term carrier contract. As far as specs go, the Moto G2 will stand in the mid-range category, with a 5-inch, 720 by 1280-pixel display, an 8MP camera, a Snapdragon 400 SoC and 1GB of RAM. You'll get 8 or 16 GB of on-board storage and the option to expand this with a microSD card. Also, removable backs of various colors will be made available, although the battery will still not be user-replaceable.
So stay tuned for our coverage of Motorola's September 4 event, when we'll learn all there is to know about the Motorola Moto G2. Until then, here's a bunch of leaked photos exposing the phone from various angles.
