New Moto G2 pictured ahead of release


Initial signs suggesting that Motorola is currently in the process of developing a successor to its immensely popular budget-friendly smartphone, the Moto G, are now beginning to surface. Earlier today, a photograph of a device dubbed the ‘Moto G 2nd Generation’ appeared online airing the handset in all its glory.

As you can see in the picture below, the upcoming new Moto G seems to be quite similar to its predecessor in terms of artistic style with only a few minor changes. The front-facing camera module can now be found on the upper right-hand side of the speaker grill, being one of them.

A leaked specification sheet was also supplied together with the photograph which confirms that the handset is set to keep its 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, dual-SIM capabilities, Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 processor and Adreno 305 GPU, but will now boast an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter and 2GB of RAM.

Unfortunately, we have no information with regards to pricing, as of yet, but recent speculation suggests that the Moto G2 will probably be available for less than its predecessor which initially went on sale for $179, SIM-free.

As with all leaks and rumors, we have to take these alleged specifications with a pinch of salt until Motorola provides us with some solid evidence regarding what it has in store for its next ultra-affordable smartphone — but hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer until we find out.
