Motorola Moto G 2015 specs leak via retailer
With Motorola's livestream event drawing near, new information about the upcoming Moto G 2015 smartphone keeps surfacing. This time, the Swiss retailer Digitec listed the device on their website, revealing all key specifications except the used SoC. The latter, however, is easy to deduce based on the number of processor cores (4), their frequency (1.7 GHz) and the graphics unit (Adreno 405): it has to be Qualcomm's Snapdragon 610. A 5-inch Full HD display will be used, which comes as a pleasant surprise.
While this information contradicts previous leaks claiming that Snapdragon 410 is to be installed alongside a 720p display, it would be strange if Motorola released a new Moto G with hardware almost identical to the current Moto G 2014. If the new leak is to be trusted, potential buyers can also expect a 2070 mAh battery, 2 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, a microSD slot compatible with cards up to 128 GB, LTE Cat. 4 support, A-GPS with GLONASS and LTE. The smartphone will also integrate FM radio. Needless to say, Android Lollipop will be installed out of the box.
According to the retailer, Moto G 2015 (or, as the website lists it, "Moto G 3rd gen") will come in black or white and will cost 235 Swiss francs, which translates to $245 or €224. If this is true, Motorola might yet again redefine hardware expectations from a mid-range smartphone, but one cannot be certain until the official reveal next Tuesday.
