An alleged Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) video has surfaced online revealing the key features of the device.
A Googler, going by the name Leonardo Fiaschi, has gotten hold of a review video of yet-to-be released Moto G (3rd Gen). It shows a man using a Motorola device featuring the trademark batwing logo on the top-left corner and a series of numbers to the top-right corner, indicating the handset to be a prototype.
Further in the video, the user is seen scrolling through the 'Settings options' and shows the score sheet of the device via a number of benchmarking apps. It revealed a key specification Adreno 306 GPU, thus confirming the presence of the 64-bit class Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor. [View the video, HERE]
Going by the specifications list, the upcoming third generation Moto G is not a major upgrade over its predecessor. For instance 1GB RAM, 8GB storage capacity of Moto G (3rd gen) is identical to the 2014 model, whereas the 2300 mAh battery is just a little better than the second gen model which features 2100 mAh cell.
The use of 410 series snapdragon in Moto G (3rd Gen) not only makes tech pundits' hackles rise, but also of the Moto fans as the company has already used the aforementioned chipset in its low-budget Moto E (2nd Gen) 4G-LTE model which was released earlier this year and it would be wiser for Motorola to opt for an upgraded Snapdragon 615 series Octa-core CPU instead, so that new Moto G stands apart from its less expensive sibling.
The only improvement we see in the new Moto G is in its cameras. It is said to house a 13mp rear camera and a 5mp snapper on the front. Its predecessor comes packed with 8mp main camera and 2mp front camera.
As of now, nothing is set in stone. As far as this leaked Moto G (3rd Gen) video is concerned, it is a prototype and there are chances of Motorola making changes to the phone before going for the mass production.
