Moto G 2015 LTE gets outed in spy shots, reveals 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset

Moto G 2015 LTE gets outed in spy shots, reveals 64-bit Snapdragon 410 chipset
The unveiling date for the third generation of the phone that defined value-for-money before the Chinese makers took off, is fast approaching, and with it the Moto G 2015 leaks. What we have now, courtesy of an insider tweet, is not some render or grainy corner shot, but actual pictures of the device's prototype, and it looks exactly like the shots we've seen so far, with a metal plate on the back, and a patterned grippable back cover.

That's not all that has leaked in the pics below, though, as the guy has powered the phone, and shown some of the system info menu, indicating that this is indeed the third generation Moto G LTE, with the internal coding XT1542. The phone will apparently be running on a 64-bit Snapdragon 410, which many entry level handsets utilize now, and the amount of RAM tipped ranges from 1 GB to 2 GB, with this LTE version probably sporting the higher amount. 

We are likely also looking at a 5" 720p display, and a pair of front-facing speakers, but the biggest upgrade is expected to be in the camera department, with a 5 MP front camera, and a generous 13 MP rear shooter with dual LED flash, as pictured.

HTC's current line-up is worse.. even asking for more than $100

IMO this year MotoG 2015 wont be as successful as it was for past 2 years. A lot of companies are bringing a way better package in similar or less prices. The only thing I see in favour of motoG is the brand name. Apart from Motorola name, everything else is just lacking in terms of hardware and features in comparison to everything else in the same price segment.

They do have good software that isn't heavy which makes it run smoothly.

sd410 + 1080p display isn't gonna do as good as 720p

720p on 5" looks fine, trust me.

It looks fine, sure. It could be better though. Both the combination of CPU and screen on this device for over $100 USD are fairly meh....

Motorola should make a new Moto model to bridge the gap between the G (low-end) and X (flagship) models. And I agree the new model should use 1080p snap615 hoho :P

I have to say the black model reminds me of my eyeglass case.. I'm after the white one And I came to the point that sd410 is a way better choice to keep the costs low but still pack great performance (HTC is stupidly distributing sd200 for the Desire line-up), another perk is you're in the front row seat when it comes to the updates, sd410 runs on 64bit so Lollipop and all the following updates will make this phone fly :)

omg finally someone that understands. i have not heard a single argument why s410 is bad and as a owner of s400 soc I KNOW that it is amazing for an average person. but if you guys want to play your pokemon games than go ahead and pay 600€ for yur galaxy s6 :D if the phone will cost below 150€ in europe it will sell like crazy.

s410 + 2470mah + 720p screen.... the phone will have great battery life, it will have 0 lag and it has a 13mp camera. so what is the problem? one question guys... why are you complaining about s410? i really do not understant it... i have s400 and everything works really great, so s410 should be even better. and it will lower the price of the phone.

There`s no complain but there are better alternatives in the market in the same price segment. Companies like Meizu, Xiaomi,Lenovo,Panasonic and some local Indian companies are offering phones with better specs and features in the similar price range. Only positive thing about motoG 2015 would be the Motorola name and updates.

thank you. finally some logical answer. but here in europe its hard to get phones from meizu, xiaomi, panasonic and indian phones. or you can get them for a higher price. lenovo is present. i think this is by far the best phone under 200€ in europe. great software and hardware, fast updates and great upport on xda.

Posts: 1117; Member since: Oct 05, 2011

That makes sense. I am personally using motoG 2 with official slimLP and it has a great support on XDA but I won`t recommend 2015 motoG with those specs at least here in India.

Also motoG 2 is currently priced at $155 or 144 Euro. You can checkwww.flipkart.com or amazon.in for some great midrange devices which are far better than yet to be announced motoG 2015.

Actually for 275 Euros you can get an unlocked Xiaomi Mi 4 or 16GB One Plus One and 200 Euros will get you Xiaomi Mi 4i.

it will cost 275€ in (forgot the name of the country). but as stated in the article the prices of the smartphones in that country are faaaaaar higher than for example usa and eu.

in europe we dont have flipkat. if the new moto g will be bellow 150€ than it will sell really well in europe. if it will be above 150€ than it will fail. in my oppinion i think it should cost 120-130€
