Motorola accidentally revealed the details of its upcoming Moto G Fast smartphone. While the contents of the spec sheet remain unclear, we know that the phone will come with a triple-camera setup, a Qualcomm 6xx series chip, 3GB of RAM, and a 4-5,000mAh battery. It is likely to retail at the ~$180 -$200 mark.

Motorola's flagships have been, for the most part, lackluster. Its mid-rangers, on the other hand, have been quite popular. That explains why the company has been releasing a barrage of them over the year. There is yet another one in the works, too, called the Moto G Fast.

Motorola 'accidentally' let information about the Moto G Fast slip via a YouTube video, which was graciously saved by a user before Motorola made the original private. While it doesn't mention any components by name, the video gives us a decent idea about what one can expect from the upcoming mid-ranger. For starters, we know that it will come with a triple-camera setup, with one of them confirmed to be a wide-angle sensor, and the other a macro lens. Up at the front, there's a punch-hole camera nestled at the top-left corner.

The Moto G fast will feature an 'octa-core Qualcomm CPU' coupled with 3GB of RAM. We're probably looking at a Snapdragon 6xx series chip, which has been standard across most Moto G phones. The rumor mill is abuzz with mentions of a 5G-ready Qualcomm 6xx chip. Whether or not Motorola chooses to use it on the phone remains to be seen.

Lastly, Motorola says that the Moto G Fast can provide up to 'two days of battery,' pegging its capacity at around the ~4,000mAh mark, which, once again, has been a standard feature of many Moto G phones. The phone could very well be a repackaged Moto G8 or Moto G8 Power intended for the US market. The phone is aesthetically similar to both and even shares the same camera configuration. If that is the case, it will likely cost around the $180 mark, making it an attractive buy for those on a tight budget.
