Motorola G2 Set for a September 10th Launch?

Motorola Moto G must be credited for bringing the much needed limelight to the mid tier segment of devices in the world. Suddenly the budget category smartphones have become just as much of a battle field for major OEMs as the flagship category and a large plaudit for the same must go out to Motorola for spearheading that with the Motorola Moto G. Since the launch of the device, we have seen several players like Asus with their Zenfone 5 or even Xiaomi with the Mi3 bring fantastic phones to the budget category and as result the Motorola Moto G is no more the attraction it once was. A result of this, saw the prices of the device being slashed by Rs 2,000 making the 8 GB model available for as little as Rs 10,499.


This price cut could also be indicative of the fact that the Motorola Moto G is set to be overhauled by the company, by its successor, thought to be called the Motorola Moto G2. The name coincides with the LG G2 so we are not entirely sure, if that would be the name Motorola or Lenovo go ahead with. The alternate name according to GSM Arena could well be Motorola G+1 which certainly makes a lot of sense, given the rumors around the Motorola Moto X+1.

The G2, lets call it that, is expected to be launched on September 10th and will feature a 5 inch 720 P display. The processor on board is expected to be based on ARM v7 and will boast the Adreno 305 GPU. Rumors have it that the camera on board will be 8 MP and the phone will have front facing speaker grille just like the Moto E. The phone will have 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB or 16 GB of internal memory if the reports are to go by. No word on the pricing has been ousted, though you can expect it to be in the region of Rs 12,000 and Rs 15,000.
