Over the past one month, we saw spec-sheets and images of Moto G (3rdGen) leaked online. Now a full promotional video has surfaced revealing that the device will indeed come with customisation options.

Brazilian retailer Americanas accidentally (or intentionally?) released a full-fledged Moto G (3rd Gen) advertisement clip revealing key features and also confirmed that Motorola will introduce the Moto Maker, a personalisation option, which was up until now was exclusive to flagship Moto X in select regions.

Once the video went viral on media sites, the company pulled the clip off the Internet. But by then, many had downloaded the Moto G (3rd Gen) ad and reposted it in social platforms.

In the 02.09 minute video (courtesy, Droid Life), we see that Motorola has christened the new phone as Moto G (2015), not Moto G3/3rd Gen. As we go through the video, key features like 5.0-inch HD display, quad-core CPU, 13 MP camera with dual-LED flash, 5 MP snapper on the front, IPX7 water-resistant certification and the battery life details are revealed.

And in the final seconds of the teaser video, Motorola confirms that the company will offer choices to prospective buyers to select accent colour, rear-casing and front-panel for their Moto G (2015). The company will also sell FlipShells as separate accessory. [Check out the leaked video of Moto G (2015) video advertisement, HERE]
