The long-rumoured Motorola Moto G (3rdGen) is finally expected to see the light of the day later this month.
A Brazil-based technology blog Tecmundo, citing company insiders, has confirmed that the Moto G (2015) will be unveiled on 28 July in Sao Paolo and would go on sale the very same day for Brazilian Real 899 (around $286/€260/₹18,140).
The upcoming Motorola phone is said to sport a 5.0-inch HD display and come packed with 64-bit class Snapdragon 410 quad-core SoC (System on Chip), backed by 8GB/16GB inbuilt storage and 2470 mAh battery.
It is also expected to come with IP6X water-and-dust-resistant certification to make the phone more durable.
It has been learnt the company will launch the Moto G (2015) in two variants – one having 1GB RAM/8GB ROM and another 2GB/16GB ROM.
Popular Twitter spy Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) has also claimed Motorola is set to bring the popular customization service Moto Maker, which was earlier exclusive to Moto X buyers in select markets, to the mid-range Moto G as well.
He even posted press photos of Moto G with eight colour combinations, customized via Moto Maker.
For the uninitiated, Moto Maker personalisation service was initially introduced along with the launch of the first generation Moto X in the US. Back then, the company offered buyers a chance to customise their own Moto X with close to 2,000 possible combinations.
They were given options to engrave a personalised message on the phone's back panel, choose colours (18) for panels, including default wallpapers and many more options. In order to customise, buyers just need to log on to Motorola website.
