Third-generation Motorola Moto G appears on Zauba revealing 2GB of RAM is on board

Third-generation Motorola Moto G appears on Zauba revealing 2GB of RAM is on board
There has been some question about whether the third-generation Motorola Moto G will come with 1GB or 2GB of RAM. We might have received the definitive answer today with a posting on Indian export-import site Zauba. Last week, 190 units of the third-gen Moto G were sent from Hong Kong to India for testing. Half of the units were black, and the other half were white.

According to the listings, the third-gen Moto G will come with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. Each white model was valued at $240 USD while the black model was listed with a value of $238 USD. Besides those 190 phones, two more were received in India listed at a much lower value.

Motorola has a media event scheduled for July 28th in the Big Apple, and a clever hint added by the manufacturer suggests that we will see the third-generation Moto G unveiled along with a pair of third-generation Motorola Moto X variants. We also could see a new DROID model make an appearance as well.

is so bad for a piece of hardware to have 2GB RAM in 2015? 2GB ram is nothing for us humans in 2015. why wouldn't our OSes demand it too. Yes I agree it would be better if Android could do fine on 1GB but who cares if works best on 2GB, it's not 8GB it's just 2!

Nope. It still works great even though it has 1GB of RAM. Saying that Android needs minimum 2GB of RAM is invalid.

Most 1 GB RAM devices (Moto G included) have a lot of issues, namely with music playback. Everyone I know with a 1 GB RAM device that isn't an iPhone can't play music and web browse at the same time, and it only gets worse with software skins (looking at you, LG.)

16gb should have been the minimum here. Way to fail again Motorola.

16gb version would be extra $20.

It's a budget phone, mxytroll, let it go

14. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Just because it's a budget phone doesn't mean it needs to be lacking in storage space.

u may think i am radical but listen to this: not all people need 128gb internal storage. the only thing u need internal storage is apps since u can have media on sd. not all people install 100 apps or play games... if they are able to lower the price because of it than i am all for it.

Mxyzptlk looks for any reason to troll Motorola, just dismiss him because he doesn't care about anyone's counterargument.

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Unless you have a good explanation of why the storage shouldn't be at least 16gb shut up and stay out of it.

Here's a good reason, post 18, the one I was responding to says it all. So now you can shut up.

agree :D

21. Mxyzptlk unregistered

What part of my comment said anything about it being necessary to have 128gb of storage? You're forgetting or just talking out of your rear end but the os tqkes up some of that storage.

128gb was an exageration. anyway like someone else stated: - 16gb instead of 8gb would be 10-15€ more - s610 instead of s410 would be 20€ more - 1080 instead of 720 would be 20€ more its a buget device and i will tell you how the real world works... 95% off all people do not know the specs and do not care about them. all they care about is that the phone looks good and that it runs well and moto g will be really snappy (if it looks good is an subjective oppinion)

I hope Lenova does better with Moto than MS did with Nokia. Bring back the removable battery, however, then we'll talk. My first gen Moto G is awesome, just wish it had removable memory and a battery the same. If Lenovo keeps the OS clean and free of bloatware (the way they received it) and keeps the price competitive, they might get my money until late 2016, then we'll see what the Fins want to bring back to the table with Android.

The second gen Moto G had removable storage, and the 3rd looks to have the same removable storage as well.

i am a motorola fan since i got the moto g 1st gen really cheap (in europe phones are a bit more expensive or at least they were 2 years ago) and it was perfect (only had issues with bad camera and no sd, otherwise the phone was prfect), and if the initial specs are correct (s410, 1-2gb ram,...) and if it will cost around 150€ than it will be a great phone. but if it will cost more than 170€ than motorola can shove it up lenovos a**
