Back in May 2012, Google CEO Larry Page announced that Google has acquired Motorola Mobility. Since then, the Chicago-based phone maker released a lot of competitive smartphones and spoiled their customers with speedy software updates. In the meantime, Motorola Mobility was sold by Google to Lenovo, but the trend has been kept.
The smartphones belonging to the Moto G series are without a doubt one of the best in terms of price to performance ratio. So far, Motorola released two Moto G generations and, just like everyone was anticipating, the third generation is in the works.
We’ve heard some rumors about the Moto G 2015 before and even saw a handful of leaked photos, but this is the first time we get to look at what appear to be a couple of Moto G 3rd gen press shots. The Moto G 2015 press shots leaked online courtesy of Techno Buffalo and you can admire them in the gallery below.
Unfortunately, the leaked photos don’t provide any info regarding the technical specifications of the yet-unannounced smartphone. If the rumors are to be believed, the new Moto G will be underpinned by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset paired with 1 GB of RAM. The rumor mill also talks about 8 GB of native storage, a 5-inch display with HD resolution, 13 MP rear-facing camera (most likely the same unit used last year for Moto X 2014), and a 5 MP user-facing camera for your selfie needs. Apparently, all Moto G 2015 variants will be LTE-friendly.
For the time being, there are no details regarding the 3rd gen Moto G release date. Since the last Moto G was released in September, you can expect the new generation to launch around the same date. Price-wise, Moto G 2015 will most likely be just as affordable as its predecessors, having a price tag of under $200.
