Moto G (3rd Gen) leaked images suggest it is called “XT1543” to have Snapdragon 410 and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
It is very amazing to know that the first and second generation Moto G models have been regarded as some of the best budget Android phones in today’s market and so it wouldn’t exactly be a surprise to see Motorola revealing a third generation model later by this year. Thanks to the rumor mill, though, we may have gotten an early peek at the device.
Several images that claim to show the Moto G (3rd Gen) have popped up from various online sources. Google+ user Neo Lee has shared four pictures that are said to have come from “a Chinese digital forum,” showing the front and back of a mysterious Motorola phone running with Android 5.1.1. The device identifies itself as “XT1543” and has a design that’s reminiscent of past Moto G phones, with curve corners and a dimple on its backside with the Motorola logo. However, the phone’s also got a silver insert that includes the aforementioned dimple as well as the camera with flash.
Meanwhile, a YouTube video (which has since been removed) spilled what could be some of the specs of Motorola’s new Moto G. The phone is said to include a 5-inch display, Snapdragon 410 processor, 13-megapixel primary camera and 5-megapixel secondary camera, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, LTE, and a microSD slot. A separate Reddit leak that surfaced in May also mentioned that the new G will have 1GB of RAM, adding that it’ll have “an oval shape around the camera similar to LG phones, but much more slim.”
According to these leaks, the new Moto G will be a modest upgrade from its predecessor, offering a very similar display and RAM but with slightly-improved cameras and processor. That may not make for a super-exciting update, but so long as Motorola keeps the phone around the same price as past Moto G models, the Moto G (3rd Gen) may follow the footprints of its predecessors as one of the best affordable Android phones available in the market.
