Motorola’s successor to the extraordinarily popular Moto G handset has been pictured in Itabuna, Brazil and gives an indication of the device’s capabilities. According to the official box, the Moto G 2015 will feature a 5″ Gorilla Glass display, 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5mp front camera. Currently, we do not know the exact pixels-per-inch of the screen, but I expect it to be around 291.78 ppi. The handset will offer 4G connectivity, dual SIM support and IPX7 water resistance. Please note, that IPX7 does not mean waterproof and only provides enough protection against small splashes. On another note, the dual-sim functionality may be limited to specific countries.
The Moto G 2015 sports 16GB of storage which may suggest the RAM has been increased to 2GB. Furthermore, I would like to know if there is a microSD slot to enhance the expansion.
Included in the box is a USB cable, charger, audio cable extender, and colour fascias. It’s difficult to see what the audio cable extender is for but it might work alongside a premium accessory. Strangely enough there are no earphones for hands-free operation. However, this isn’t a major issue as most of the bundled earphones with handsets are awful. The Moto G 2015 is shaping up very nicely and looks set to be the next budget handheld to own. Although, with so many high-specification clones on the market, it’s difficult to dominate this section of the market.
Would you trust a non-branded Chinese clone?
