Photos reveal box for the third-generation Motorola Moto G; model shown has 16GB of memory
Motorola is expected to introduce the third-generation Motorola Moto G this coming Tuesday, July 28th. A picture of the handset sitting in its box has surfaced and reveals that a pair of extra back covers, one blue and one green, comes with the device. The specs of the phone have been confirmed by information inside the box, and include a Gorilla Glass protected 5-inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a 294ppi pixel density. The handset also supports dual micro-SIM capabilities and has an IP X7 waterproof rating. A quad-core 1.4GHz CPU powers the phone.

The phone's screen protector lists the 13MP camera that is on back of the unit, and the 5MP snapper that adorns the front. It also mentions the third-gen Moto G's support for 4G LTE connectivity and the 16GB of expandable internal memory that is inside this specific unit. Other specs previously leaked include the 2470mAh battery that keeps the lights on.

We could see two different versions of the third-generation Moto G unveiled on Tuesday. One model would come with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, while the other would contain 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Both models were recently sent into India and appeared on the Zauba website.

Stay with us this weekend for any last second leaks. Don't forget that on Tuesday, when Motorola holds its media event, we will have all of the news as it breaks.

Thanks for the tip!

They are not doing well with keeping the phone a secret, all these leaks beginning to remind me of M9.

Which is funny since the M9 was a disaster.

Yeah, but the M9 was a disaster because of the overheating chip and the bad press that went with it. I think it had nothing to do with leaked details.

Secrecy at this point doesn't make it an issue being it's days before it's announcement and not months. Also the M9 was supposed to be a flagship not a mid ranger.

Nice box. If the 16GB 2GB of ram is official then I may have a decent backup phone

Not too shabby for the price. And with small screen ppi and big battery, I bet it will last more than a day on regular use. Good to know honor 7, lenovo vibe shot and moto g are filling the needs for better battery. Just got my lenovo vibe shot last thursday. I can say that battery life is impressive. Very good for browsing and camera for it's price.

Well, if their budget phone Moto G has 16GBs of Storage, hopefully the Moto X will have a minimum 32GBs.

Amen to that. And 4gb phones should already be considered obsolete and only be sold for $30 tops.

I remember my first computer, it had 10 GBs. It was a high end model at the time.... years later, the basic pre built PC has 500 GBs minimum. I cannot wait for the Mobile market to reach that point.

The first computer I ever used was a Commodore PET computer, with either dual external 5ΒΌ" 1.2 mB floppy disks or tape drive (that looked identical to an audio cassette). Later when I started work, we had a laptop (Compaq with a physical trackball and 64mB of RAM). As far as I'm concerned the mobile market has reached my point.

Hope the 1080p, Snapdragon 610 and 2GB RAM one ain't a fake rumor. What do you think the price will be? $240? $250?

I'll agree with Mxy, as a secondary, if it's got 2GB/16GB + Micro SD card slot, it'll be fine for that purpose. I still have my gen one Moto G but it's a bit long in the tooth now. Perfectly happy with 720p too and keep decent battery life.

Let's hope Motorola release the 16gb version in the UK, they have a habit of releasing the lower spec phones only .
