Motorola might be gearing up to launch the next iterations of both the Moto X and Moto G series next month, if a couple of leaked images are to be believed. In case of the former, it doesn’t look like the device launching next month will be the actual third-generation variant – it’s mentioned as the Moto X Sport, with a couple of hardware changes.
The changes include a 16MP rear and 5MP front camera (the second-gen Moto X had a 13MP and 2MP pair), and a 1.5GHz quad-core processor of unknown make. The display size is the same at 5.2 inches, and it’s unlikely the resolution will see a bump to a Quad HD given the lower-clocked processor. As for the Moto G 3rd Gen (or Moto G 2015, depending on how Motorola decides to market it), the phone is mentioned with a 5-inch display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and a 1.4GHz quad-core processor.
The new Moto G could be a notable upgrade over its predecessor based on those specs, and the leaked image suggests it could simply be known as the new Motorola Moto G. According to Entel, Chile’s largest telecom company, both the Moto X Sport and the new Moto G will be unveiled in August. Availability will probably start in September, a year after the second-generation Moto X and Moto G made it to markets around the world, and we should be seeing more leaks with additional details in the near future.
