Motorola is holding an event later on today where the company will be unveiling its brand new Moto G handset, destined for the low-end of the market. Unfortunately, thanks to some big leaks in the last few day, there’s virtually nothing that isn’t known about the new Moto G at this point.
If all of these leaks turn out to be accurate, and they certainly seem to be that way now, then Motorola’s unveiling will be a mere formality for the device. The new Moto G is a follow-up to last year’s model, which was quite successful and well received. A small price-tag for decent specs and performance proved a winning combo for the Android-powered device and this year’s G seems to be following the same formula.
According to all the leaks these are the Moto G’s specs:
- 5-inch display, likely 720p resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass on top
- 1.4 Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor
- 8 or 16GB of storage with MicroSD slot
- 4G LTE
- 13 Megapixel camera
- 5 Megapixel front-facing camera,
- IPX7 waterproofing
- Dual SIM support
- Android 5.1.1
As for the design of the new Moto G, the press render from up top should give you a clear indication of what to expect. And if a render is not good enough, take a look at this second image, which comes from someone who has already unboxed the phone.
And if all of this sounds appealing you’re probably wondering what the price of the Moto G will be. After all, the device made a name for itself because it had great performance at a great price point. According to one previous report, the price is set at $179, which is based on a US carrier’s leaked info, and if true, it points towards a great deal.
Luckily, we only have a few hours to go before we find out whether all of this info is true, so stay tuned.
