Motorola's Moto G (3rd Gen) features have surfaced online ahead of its launch next week. 

A Motorola device codenamed XT1550, understood to be the new Moto G (3rd Gen), has been spotted at, an Indian based export-import logistic company website. The device (from Taiwan), as per the manifest (courtesy, MobiPicker), features 5.0-inch display, 2GB RAM and 8GB inbuilt storage with a price tag of ₹8,436.

The manifest also shows another Moto G3 model, which costs ₹15,000. We believe this to be a higher-end model with 32GB storage space, which we have been hearing for months now.

Considering Moto G3's leaked import document, Motorola might release two Moto G (3rd Gen) variants in India. It is also speculated that the device will be put on sale soon after the unveiling on 28 July. Last year, the company released its predecessor on Flipkart within hours after the official announcement in India. [More details, HERE]

Motorola has confirmed to host a launch event in New Delhi on 28 July.

In a related development, technology blog Mobile Syrup has got hold of the alleged Moto G (3rd Gen) prototype. It has claimed that the upcoming device will boast IP6X – Ingress Protection certifications. This means the users will be able take Moto G (2015) for a dip in water. For the uninitiated, IP6X rated devices can survive 1 metre (around 5 feet) under water for about 30 minutes.

This is a reasonable upgrade over its predecessor, which features just a nano-coating, which merely protected the phone from water splashes and enabled users to answer calls during rain, that too for a short period.
