Motorola Moto G sequel to offer larger screen, 8MP rear camera?
The sequel to the Motorola Moto G could be called the Motorola Moto G +1, or the Motorola Moto G2. Whatever the name, it is expected to carry the model number of XT1063. That device just paid a visit to the GFX benchmark site, which allows us to take away some information about the handset, including the larger screen size on the sequel.

According to the benchmarking site, the XT1063 features a 5 inch screen, with resolution of 720 x 1280. That compares with the 4.5 inch screen found on the current Moto G. The silicon under the hood remains the same, which means that we will see the same quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU, along with the Adreno 305 GPU, under the hood. 1GB of RAM remains on board along with 8GB of native storage.

The rear-camera will thankfully get a bump from 5MP to 8MP. The device will also feature a 2MP front-facing snapper, and will come with Android 4.4.4 pre-installed. Of course, this is all speculation for now, until Motorola makes it official. Outside of the improvement to the camera, the only difference with the sequel is the increase in screen size. But is that really an upgrade? Consider that thanks to the law of mathematics, the 329ppi pixel density on the Moto G will be lower, thanks to the 5 inch glass on the new model.

Thanks for the tip!
