Motorola’s new Moto G will arrive later this month, according to a new report, and it will bring big improvements over last year’s model — including a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, IPX7 water-resistance, and up to 2GB of RAM.

We’ve already heard a lot about the new Moto G, and seen a series of leaked images. And now a new report claims to confirm its specifications, release date, and price tag.

Brazilian site Tecmundo says that the 2015 Moto G will have a newer, quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and Adreno 306 graphics, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 5-inch 720p display, and a 2,470mAh battery.

There are expected to be two different versions of the device, one of which will offer 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, and another that will pack 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The device will reportedly cost R$899 in Brazil, which is approximately $286 in U.S. dollars.

That makes the handset’s price tag seem pretty high, but that’s due to the high import taxes for electronics in Brazil.

Leaked images of the new Moto G indicate it will be the first in the series that will be customizable through Moto Maker. According to Tecmundo, the device will go on sale on July 28.
