Latest leak nets third-gen Motorola Moto G renders, confirms 1080p screen, SD610, 2GB of RAM

Latest leak nets third-gen Motorola Moto G renders, confirms 1080p screen, SD610, 2GB of RAM
A week from today, Motorola is expected to hold a media event that should result in the unveiling of a few new handsets including the third-generation Motorola Moto G. Today, a retailer hailing from Switzerland has listed the phone on its website in both black and white. But the leak has netted more than just images of the eagerly awaited handset.

According to digitec, the retailer we can thank for listing the phone on its site, the third-generation Moto G will have a 5-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 FHD resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 441ppi. With an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU under the hood, it would appear that the Snapdragon 610 SoC will be driving the next iteration of the Moto G. Unfortunately, as we already expected, only 8GB of internal storage is inside the phone. However, it appears that Motorola has seen fit to place a 128GB capacity microSD slot on the device.

The third-gen Moto G will carry the same 2070mAh battery as its predecessor, although that figure could be a placeholder. The price of the phone works out to the equivalent of $245 USD. Before you cringe, that figure could be bloated by the inclusion of Swiss taxes.

The clock keeps ticking as we move closer to Motorola's big day. Expect to see more leaks as July 28th draws nearer and nearer.

Thanks for the tip!

So, Motorola's 2015 "G" matches Samsung's 2013 S4. As long as it gets a REMOVABLE BATTERY and a sub-$200 pricetag, nice budget phone.

Why are you so obsessed with removable battery?

8GB will be good once the phone is updated to Android M.

8GB of RAM on such a device is unacceptable , the 2018 Samsung Galaxy Ace Neo prime 5 S has 16GB of it

Agree 8gb is pathic don't care if the phone had 20 megapixels 400mah battery & 4k screen 8gb on a phone in 2015 is not acceptable.

The article had a mistake, instead of internal storage, RAM was written. And yes 8gb internal storage is unacceptable but motorola did had 16gb option for moto g and I guess it will have for this one too.

for midrangers they should have 16 gb ( base) n 32 gb & 64 gb options too. while now flagships should have 64 gb in base model n 128 gb !!

This is ugly and screams budget. I'll take the 2nd Gen Moto G's design anytime over this. In this case I'd rather they stick to the same look with internal improvements.

SD610? Full HD display? 2 GB of RAM? Now THAT is what I call a real upgrade.

13. Mxyzptlk unregistered

So far everything Motorola has done feels like a downgrade.

I doubt this is true tho.

If this is true, it will kill all the midrange devices. Sadly, I don't think it'll come true.

I guess at least 2gb would be true.

I sure hope that 2070mAh >won't< come true though. Ffs this needs at least 2500mAh to call it square.

SD610 and FHD display a lot better than SD410 and HD display. Judging by the photos it seems pretty hefty for a 5 incher. 8GB internal storage is dissappointing but understandable. 2070 mAh battery have to be a joke. First gen Moto G had same battery capacity for much smaller display with less resolution and much power efficient SoC.

If this has ONLY 8gb storage then it does not matter what the other specs are its not a mid range but ultra low range phone. Too many apps canot be moved to sd card so even with a 128gb sd card your phone will run out of space within a few months with standard use. FAIL 16gb MINIMUM

17. Shocky unregistered

32GB minimum. The thing is, flash storage is dirt cheap, there is no excuse for it.

I seriously doubt that the phone would run out of storage with a few months of standard use. The majority of people do not need that much storage, many get by easily with 32gb of storage. Perhaps you would be able to fill it in a few months, but your usage is not by any means standard. If it was standard use then phone manufacturers would have higher storage options and have an SD card slot always.

The hardware is decent, but 8GB storage will give you around 5GB of space to use. That's just not enough for applications, lets hope they at least include an option to move apps to the sdcard, even though the option is quite limited.

Right,I agree 8gb isn't enough but most won't need anything over 32gb. To claim that over 128gb is standard use is just absurd.

You have a point. We use to think about how each one of us use the phone, and being tech savvy we will look for a phone that compiles to our expectations, usually a current flagship or even a last year one. Then we come here, see the MotoG specs with only 8GB storare and obviuosly we see and under powered phone... but its also clear that's not meant for a power user, my brother, mom and dad use a MotoG(2013) and are perfectly fine with it, because that's just what they need. Some of us struggle with 16GB, so I'm always hunting for at least 32GB, but just because a phone isn't a good fit for me I will go and say its a bad phone.
