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?
German Swiss retailer Digitec, the pictures here are of the white and black models of the new Moto G (3rd gen). The phone will sport a 5-inch FHD (1080p) display, stereo sound, 2070mAh battery, 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 processor, Adreno 405 GPU, 2GB RAM, 8GB storage (with microSD support), 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
All of that sounds about right, outside of the battery and Android 5.0. A leak from earlier this week showed a sticker on the front of a supposed Moto G (3rd gen) that read 2470mAh for the battery. We are also fully expecting Motorola to ship Android 5.1 or 5.1.1 on this phone.
A phone that we believe to be the new Moto G (3rd gen) has surfaced in three separate filings at the FCC in recent weeks, showing models ready for Verizon, Sprint, and GSM carriers as an unlocked phone.
What do you think? A 5-inch 1080p phone with a decent processor for Moto G pricing could be some kind of a deal.
