Motorola is set to kick off a big 3-city press event in just over an hour, an event that we assumed would be the moment for them to make the Moto G (3rd gen) official. Well, Motorola India scooped them on that portion of today’s events. The Moto G (3rd gen) is now official. (more…)
With OnePlus now less than 24 hours behind us, it’s Motorola’s turn to take the stage and give us what’s next for 2015. We know a Moto G (3rd gen) is coming, thanks to Motorola India outing the entire device this morning a bit early, but will we also see a new Moto X (3rd gen) and Moto 360? Maybe two Moto X phones? I hope the answer is “yes” to all of that.
Motorola is hosting press events in New York City, London, and Sau Paulo this morning at 9AM Eastern (6AM Pacific). We aren’t sure just yet if they are going to live stream it (Update: Live stream added!), but should they decide to provide us with a link, we’ll be sure to add it here. Otherwise, I’m here, in NYC, ready to liveblog it out for all of you.
Any last guesses or predictions? (more…)
Hey, Motorola, got any plans outside of the Moto G (3rd gen) tomorrow? Hope so!
Thanks to another premature leak by another wireless carrier outside of the US, we know even more about Motorola’s new mid-range offering. Through an unofficial unboxing of sorts, we get a look at the new Moto G’s box, swappable back covers, and front sticker (with specs). (more…)
The new Moto G (3rd gen) is no secret at this point. We’ve seen renders, mentions on Motorola’s site of Moto Maker options, promo videos, and hands-on time with the phone all within the last week. There are still some questions, though, one of which involves price. How low will Motorola go with the new Moto G? Will they stick close to the 2nd generation’s $179 price point? According to a source of ours, that’s exactly where Motorola plans to land. (more…)
Motorola needs next Tuesday to get here in a hurry, because if this leak barrage goes on any longer, they aren’t going to have anything new to announce.
This afternoon, Brazilian retailer Americanas felt it was OK to go ahead and post an entire overview video of the yet-to-be-announced Moto G (3rd gen). The video walks through all of its meaningful specs, but they also included them in the description, in case there was any confusion. (more…)
Motorola slipped up briefly yesterday when it activated a Moto Maker page dedicated to the new Moto G. We had previously heard that Motorola would add the Moto G to its customization service, but this essentially confirms it. Of course, the page was pulled long ago, just not before a reddit user captured the details. (more…)
Motorola is hosting an event on July 28 in New York, London, and Brazil that will more than likely be used to showcase a new Moto G (3rd gen). The leaks for this phone have been everywhere dating back a good month or so, but we received the biggest of them all today, thanks to a
German Swiss retailer. In fact, I think we now know just about everything we needed to know about this phone, outside of potential Moto Maker customizations, assuming this retailer isn’t just filling up a spec sheet with information based off rumor and speculation.
So what do we have? (more…)
According to the latest photo leak, showing off the plastic screen protector on the frontside of the upcoming Moto G (3rd Gen), Motorola’s new budget-friendly smartphone will feature a bit of water resistance, coming with a rating of IPX7. This rating is not good for those who may want to go swimming with their phones, but if you happen to get a few splashes of liquid on the device, you should be just fine. (more…)
