It seems like Motorola might be the new lead contender for worst-secret-keeper-ever. As I said earlier this week, we’ve seen renders, more renders, real photos, more real photos, and even more real photos of the 2015 Moto G leak over the last couple of months. And now, thanks to some new almost-certainly-legit photos (via LaptopMedia), we have what is now our best look yet at the new Moto G…
Earlier this week, we got our first look at some clear images of the new Moto X, and these images of the Moto G are much the same. Around the edges of the device you can see the identifying Motorola barcodes and branding, as well as the “Motorola Confidential Property” warning along the bottom. It’s clear looking at the front that the device has a screen smaller than that of the X, although the back side design is very similar with a metal strip for the camera and dual-tone flash.
As we saw thanks to a dummy unit that leaked earlier, the Moto G — while none of these specs have been confirmed yet, of course — will almost surely sport IPX7 waterproofing, a 2470 mAh battery, a quad-core (assumably Snapdragon) processor, expandable storage via microSD card, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, and the usual 4G LTE support.
According to a tweet earlier this month from evleaks, Motorola is planning to bring the company’s upcoming 2015 Moto G handset to the Moto Maker online phone customization tool. Most recently, a promotional video leaked showing off the device, confirming a a 5-inch HD display. The video does mention the ability to swap out back covers of the device, but didn’t confirm outright that the famed Moto Maker would be coming to the G line.
Motorola announced last week that it is holding an event to unveil some new products — assumably these smartphones — on July 28th. Based on what we are assuming right now, we will all but surely be seeing the much-rumored 2015 Moto X and 2015 Moto G smartphone refreshes, and the company might even surprise us (or not so much) with an unveil of the next Moto 360 smartwatch as well.
