Motorola Moto G (2015) may join the MotoMaker club, model with 2GB RAM rumored

Motorola Moto G (2015) may join the MotoMaker club, model with 2GB RAM rumored
Back in 2013, Motorola did something pretty remarkable – it designed and launched an affordable Android smartphone that was actually good. The phone in question was the Motorola Moto G, which sold by the millions. Sure enough, a successor came a year later – the second-gen Moto G was bigger and better in a number of ways, all while keeping the same low price tag. And now, a third-generation model is expected to join Moto's lineup. The Motorola Moto G (2015) has leaked numerous times over the past weeks, and today brings one of the spiciest leaks we've seen yet.

It is highly likely that the 2015-edition Motorola Moto G will be eligible to receive the MotoMaker treatment. Users will be able to customize their Moto G extensively prior to having it shipped to their door, judging by this recent leak. From the looks of it, a broad palette of colorful back plates will be available for the handset, and accents will be customizable as well. The front of the handset, however, will be either black or white. The volume and power buttons don't seem to be eligible for customization. On a related note, if MotoMaker for the Moto G does turn out to be a thing, we're guessing that it will be available only in a small number of markets.

While this information is not yet official, it is coming from a trustworthy source – it was evleaks himself who just posted a dozen of renders showing off MotoMaker-ized Motorola Moto G handsets. His leak is coming alongside rumors of a possible variant of the Motorola Moto G (2015) with 2GB of RAM, which is twice what all Moto G models so far have had. In addition, a variant with support for DTV – a mobile digital television format – appears to be in the works, as references to one have appeared in leaked lines of code. 

And that's pretty much all the information we can extract from today's leaks. Anyone excited about the third-generation Motorola Moto G? You might want to check out the latest leaked Moto G renders, which expose the phone from all angles. No word of an announcement have been passed on yet, but we're getting the feeling that the phone is coming sooner than later.

If it includes 2GB Ram, I am all for it ! The original Moto G and 2nd Gen both suffered from memory management (even with Kitkat and Android L). You couldn't even multi-task with even 3 apps (at least in my case). So 2GB should be hopefully fine. I don't even care if they don't improve camera and SoC but increase of Ram is must.

Same with me. I ditched my Moto G 2nd Gen after using it for 2 weeks.

If Motorola is talking about adding the Moto G to Moto Maker. Then I also hope they add the ability to add the amount of storage. If they add that ability as well. Then they can still take my money. Now Motorola add Moto Maker to other countries.

i have original moto g. the only issues i have is really bad camera and no sd card. other wise the phone is perfect. so s410 + 13mp camera + sd card is perfect! i love the fact that it has 720p screen (idk why would anyone want 1080p screen on a phone...). the only thing i hope for is atleast 2400mah battery and 150$ price and i will throw my money at them. on my moto g i have 0 lag. everythig works as it should. and i do not get how you guys bitch all the time about s410 and 1gb ram. for people that use the phone for internet, music, whatsapp and a bit of gaming here and there, the phone is just perfect. so for non phone arena readers the phone is perfect :D. and for you guys there always is a galaxy s6 or an iphone :D :D and i really cant get how you guys cant understand that not all people have 600$ for a phone and that not all people want or need 4gb ram and s820 (in the end u use 20% of what u pay for). tho it is true that s810 is usefull in the winter because it heats up your pocket.. ;)

As long as the Battery is increased (are you listening Motorola) 16gb minimum & better cameras, then my parents will upgrade from 2013 version.

Not a fan of the look but it might grow on me. I still think the original Moto X is the best looking. Why not make a 5 inch version (with new internals) and call it a Moto G.

Cool that Lenovo has found a way to sell phones in the western hemisphere. Too bad I can't get a 2013 G with upgradable memory, a removable battery, and 2GB of RAM. That would seal the deal.
