Detailed press renders showcase the upcoming Motorola Moto G (2015) in white
Rumors and sightings of the third-gen Moto G have been getting plenty of airtime lately. Following last week's video and specs leak, a new press image gives us a detailed look at the forthcoming device in a white color configuration. As you'll notice, there aren't too many visible changes from the current Moto G, but it does seem to have a more polished, accomplished look about it.

Posted up by the folks at TechnoBuffalo, who sourced the images from an anonymous tipster, the sighting does not arrive with any info on the device's tech. specs. Taking into consideration recent reports, though, we expect it the third-gen Moto G to pack a 4.97-inch screen of 720 x 1280 resolution. 

Under the hood, we'll probably get a Snapdragon 410 SoC and 1 GB of RAM, which offer a sobering reminder that despite its slick design, this is still a mid-range handset. But while Motorola wouldn't wish to distort the line between the Moto G and the high-end Moto X, it'd be nice if the company didn't cheap out so much on the chipset, particularly given how many better-performing smartphones occupy the Moto G's space in the market. 

Other leaks and scattered info point to a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter with a 5-megapixel offering for selfies, 8 GB of storage, 4G LTE and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. 

Codenamed "Osprey," the next-gen Moto G will carry the model number XT1540, and with so many leaks now at large, we can't be too far off the announcement. 

As and when we hear more, we'll let you guys know right away. In the meantime, have a look at the new renders below, and be sure to leave your thoughts on the Moto G (2015) in the comments.

They should have upgraded the SOC and RAM (to 2 gb).

610/615 and 1.5GB/2GB ram would be good 410 and 1GB ram not good enough Since that means 2 years slight improvement in SoC and no improvement in ram

If it's priced the same as the mid-rangers that pack SD615 and 2GB RAM, I'll pass..

1st. Software is nothing if the Hardware isn't cooperating. 2nd. I'm all but doubtful about the Camera, given how Moto X 2014 performed, Resolution is nothing if the Quality isn't cooperating. 3rd. The Battery, given how other OEM's stepped up their battery longevity game, I hope Motorola took note from them, Big Battery is nothing if the Software Optimization isn't cooperating.

Really Motorola? They should bump up the chipset and offer 2GB of memory.

If Asus can pack as much into the Zenphone as the did for the price, Lenovo needs to figure it out. The Moto G was the original measuring stick for what a badass device should be for entry level. Like dude above said, Nokia was ruined by MS. Let's not see the same happen to the other OG, Lenovo. Get it together!

To be honest, that same zenfone might probably not get anymore updates compared to the moto G's timely update. But I understand your point. More memory would be appreciated. P.S Nokia ruined itself by going with MS. They had the choice and they elopped.

looks like one plus 2,on back.

The back looks just like that OnePlus 2 picture that was posted.

Yes it does... yes it does indeed. I have some theories about what that bar on back is for. It's also featured on the 2015 Moto X according to leaked images of the device and Motorola stated that it has some sort of functionality related to Google Cardboard. The fact that the Moto G, and OnePlus 2 also have the same bar on the backs and also because OnePlus 2's full unveil will be done via VR, I think that they're going to be showcasing something new of Google's related to new VR features.

If this is real the top (and even bottom) bezel is unnecessarily large. Bezels should always be kept to an absolute minimum and I don't understand why they aren't.

2015 phone with 2013 specs 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, NO PHONE in 2015 should have less than 16gb storage & 1.5GB RAM.

I do not know if you understand the concept of people with very low income needing a smartphone. Not everyone out there can afford a Galaxy S6 Edge, of an iPhone 6 Plus. The Android market is a very diverse one, just because you don't see the value in a device, doesn't mean it's not something that is ideal for another individual.

finally someone that understands. i have moto g first gen. the only thing that bothers me is the really bad camera and that it does not support sd cards. the phone is otherwise perfect. i experience 0 lag. so: -snapdragon 410 -1gb ram - 13 mp camera - sd card support -720p screen (wuuhuuu 1080 is for retards) - please atleast 2400mah battery -under 200$ (hope it will be around 150$ because they used a cheap soc and 720p display) This is just perfect. i dont get why you guys even complain.. the problem is that you wont be able to brag about the benchmark scores infront of your friends? :D snapdragon 410 is just perfect. i dont really get why would someone want a better SOC than this (except if you use it for gaming).
