Motorola Moto X Sport and next-gen Motorola Moto G leak; both models to be unveiled next month?

Motorola Moto X Sport and next-gen Motorola Moto G leak; both models to be unveiled next month?
According to a recent report, new Motorola Moto X and Motorola Moto G models are on tap to be unveiled in August. The names of the former is rumored to be the Motorola Moto X Sport and the latter could be simply known as the new Motorola Moto G. The existence of these two models is allegedly confirmed from Chile's largest telecom firm, Entel.

The Motorola Moto X Sport appears to be different from the third-generation Motorola Moto X, which is expected to be introduced in the near future. As hinted by its name, the Moto X Sport model is likely to be aimed at those who drop their handset often or like to use their phone in the rain. In other words, the Sport could turn out to be a rugged handset.

Leaked images from Entel show the Moto X Sport carrying a 5.2-inch screen, the same size as the glass on the current, second-gen Moto X. The Sport will also include a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing shooter. That compares with the rear-facing 13MP camera and the front-facing 2MP shooter on the second-generation Moto X. The leak also shows that a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU will be ticking inside the Moto X Sport, but the make and model of the SoC aren't being mentioned.

As for the new Moto G, the phone is tipped to include a 5-inch screen, like the second-generation model. The next-gen Moto G will have a rear-facing 13MP camera and a 5MP front-facing snapper. That compares to the 8MP/2MP camera combo on the current Moto G. Furthermore, the upcoming Moto G will apparently get a hike in the clock speed for the quad-core CPU to 1.4GHz from the quad-core 1.2GHz CPU on the second-generation Moto G.

Despite the leak allegedly coming from Entel, we still suggest heading to the pantry and taking this story with a grain of salt until these two variants become official.


Thanks for the tip!

Wonder when Moto's launching the 3rd Gen Moto G as they release it within a gap of 10 months. It should probably be happening this month but no news yet...

I'm just wondering when Motorola is going to get the ball rolling for the Moto X.

Why do you even care? You don't like Motorola anyway.

YES it will be. The freaking entry level second gen moto e has a bigger battery than the moto g.

1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and Snapdragon 410. No real improvement since 2013.

1.5 GB is a Sasmung speciality to artificially differenciate between their phones. No one else does that $h!t. Asus already sells the 4 GB / 32 GB 1080p ZF2 for only slightly more than the MG 2014. So yeah, (at least) 2 GB or GTFO.

4GB/32GB Zenfone 2 is almost 2c more expensive than Moto G.

Snapdragon 410 and 1GB of RAM.

2 things 1st: i'm from chile and those slides looks pretty real to me because of the typography, colors, and logos from Entel. 2nd: "Nuevo" is used here as an adjetive, it's not the code name for this moto G. "Nuevo" means "new"

I hope they fix up the camera on the X. Adding more megapixels isn't always the solution though the increase in front selfie cam is nice.

9. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Oh they need to do more than fix the camera on the X.

Snapdragon 610, slow Adreno 405 and FHD display in Moto X Sport? No thanks.

Will there still be a Moto X 2015? or Is it now called Sport?
