New Motorola Moto G (2015) images reveal IPX7 certification (water resistance)

New Motorola Moto G (2015) images reveal IPX7 certification (water resistance)
Motorola is likely going to announce a new Moto G smartphone later this month, on July 28, when we should also see a third-generation Moto X, as well as a new Motorola Droid. Until then, though, in case you're wondering if the upcoming Moto G is water-resistant (as reported not long ago), it looks like it is, indeed.

Mobile Syrup today published two images showing a Moto G (2015) dummy unit that's expected to be showcased in stores across Canada, where the new handset should be available via "at least one carrier". One of the images shows that the third-gen Moto G is IPX7-cetified, which means it's water-resistant (immersion up to 1 m for 30 minutes), but not dust-resistant.

The new Motorola Moto G will also come with 4G LTE, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 13 MP and 5 MP cameras (rear and front), microSD card support, and a 2470 mAh battery. Android 5.1 Lollipop will be on board out of the box.

Prices for the Motorola Moto G (2015) should start at under $200 off contract, and we assume that the handset will go on sale shortly after being announced. Who's planning to buy one?

Really wish the processor was a SD615, but I guess it really depends of the price though.

Yep if it had a little bit better processor and 1080 screen, I would have gladly paid $250 than $200 for this phone.

It is actually a 1,7ghz SD610 which is the same as sd615 only it doesnt have the extra 4 core low speed cluster which was only added by qualcom because the retarded chinese market wanted 8 cores. Only 1 cluster works at a time. The sd610 can be throttled down to match he lower speed cluster of the sd 615 and also throttled up to match the high speed cluster. So basically same thing.

Will be a good back up device, if my phone broke. Will get 2gb/16gb version in white though.

I hope Moto launches a new line, something like Moto S with a 5.5" 1080p screen, SD615, 2-3GB RAM, 13MP camera for $300 to compete with Zenfone 2, Idol 3

Yep something in middle of moto g and x would be good, but usually for 300 you can get last years moto x.

Its a substantial upgrade from the previous generation. That hardware and pure android software produce seriously long lasting phones. My mom charges her moto G at most twice per week. Granted it's very very light usage but it's still a tank.

The Moto G has improved a lot since the first leaks. The first leaks said Snapdragon 410, 1GB RAM, no mention about water resistance. New leaks say Snapdragon 610, 2 GB RAM, water resistance. If everything is true it will be a great deal at $180. Hopefully it has a 16 Gb and 32 Gb version.

If it is going to ipx7 certified & have good selfie cam might pick this one. Hope they make 2gb ram,16gb internal model. That will be a stellar in this price.
