With the launch of the first generation of Moto G with Snapdragon 400 and 1GB RAM at Rs 12,999 ($215), Motorola had revolutionised the concept of VFM (Value for Money) smartphones. At least that's what we felt until - ‘The Chinese invaded the market'. The likes of Xiaomi, One Plus simply changed the Value for Money concept- they changed it to Super Value For Money (at least that's what I love calling them). Result of the inception of these companies led to fall in the hype of the Moto G2 when it was launched here in India. The device came with ever so slight modifications over its predesccor and hence no longer sold like hot pan cakes like it used to before. Nevertheless with the Moto G (2015) aka Moto G3 Motorola doesn't plan to do any different.
It wasn't until today though when the first prototype images cropped up in the web. Here are they, have a look!
Going by the looks we guess the Moto G3 would come with a 5 inch display on the front. Possibly with HD (1280x720p). So a definite question might now crop up in the mind that why not Full HD? Don't worry we are here! Since the Moto G3 would be coming with a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2 GHz Quadcore Snapdragon 410 SoC, putting a Full HD (1920x1080p) display would have been too heavy on the Adreno 306 GPU. I know what you may be thinking of hearing this - ‘Snapdragon 410 again?!' Yes unfortunately it is, as the leaks which suggested at a SD 610 SoC proved out to be false.
Along with that there would be a choice of two different storage options - 8GB and 16GB respectively. The camera has now been upgraded to a 13MP though. And the front is now a 5MP. Leaks also hints at 2470 mah battery which I feel is quite decent for a device running on such a low power processor. Just like every Moto phone though the USP of the device would be the software as it would run Android 5.1.1 out of the box.
Further leaks also hint at a 28th July launch with a hefty price tag of Rs 18,000 ($286). If it really does with these kinds of specifications and that hefty price tag,we do believe that it will fail to taste success again! What do you think?
