Meet the new Moto G2 with 5-inch display, 8MP camera and stereo speakers
Motorola’s upcoming Moto G2 has been leaked ahead of its official unveiling next month. The images above and below confirm its front-facing stereo speakers, larger display, and dual SIM card slots — as well as the return of its much-loved interchangeable back panels.
We’ve been hearing about the Moto G2 in recent weeks, with speculation ramping up after Motorola all but confirmed the upcoming arrival of the device in its invite for next month’s press event. But this is the first time we’ve gotten such a clear look at the device out in the wild.
The Moto G2 doesn’t look vastly different to its predecessor, but there are some obvious differences inside and out — such as those two front-facing speakers that debuted on the Moto E back in May, and the dual SIM card slots (which are expected on the international version only), and the microSD card slot.
According to HelloMotoHK, the source that obtained these images, other improvements will include a larger 5-inch display, a new 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM.
The Moto G2 will stay true to its midrange roots, then, in an effort to maintain its affordable price tag. This combination make the original so popular that it became Motorola’s best-selling smartphone to date, and the company will be hoping that success continues with its successor.
Motorola is expected to unveil the Moto G2 on September 4 at a press event in Chicago, so these details — as well as the handset’s launch date and price tag — should be confirmed then.
