Motorola is rumoured to launch the Moto G2 smartphone soon as a retailer has revealed the date of availability to be September 10.
According to GSMArena, which obtained the information from a Motorola retailer, the Moto G2 smartphone will be launched around the same time as the recently leaked Moto X+1, in September. Although, the G2 is the successor to the inexpensive Moto G, it will be allegedly priced at $250 which is a bit higher than all Moto G variants currently available on the market, including the 4G version. This pricing is an interesting revelation as the affordable price has been the reason behind the success of Moto G.
The Moto G2 running Android 4.4.4 is expected to feature some of the same hardware specifications as its predecessor such as the 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. However, the screen size will be bumped to 5 inches while retaining the 720p resolution and the camera on the device is said to be an 8-megapixel module. Other specifications include a 2-megapixel front facing camera and 8GB of internal storage. It is uncertain whether the device will have any other storage options or the ability to use microSD cards.
With IFA 2014 trade fair coming up early next month, it is quite possible for Motorola to announce the G2 and X+1 at this event making the rumored sell date plausible.
