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.
