The Moto G (pictured) is a good phone for the price, though the difference between the high and low-end for Android devices is slowly beginning to shrink, as Google’s Nexus 5 and the more recent OnePlus One have shown. Even so, Motorola is keen to keep plugging away with its G series of smartphones, with the Moto G2 possibly hitting Australia later this month.
Ausdroid’s Daniel Tyson was recently tipped off to an entry for a black “MOTO G 2ND GEN” in the “inventory system of an Australian retailer” (though a comment on the article suggesting it’s Allphones). According to Tyson’s source, a mid-August release is lined up for the device, though there’s no way to confirm the date.
The story goes on to mention that the specifications — 1.2GHz quad-core, 5-inch display, dual-sim and 8GB storage plus a microSD slot — line up with “previous leaks”. The only downer is the absence of a 4G radio, so you’ll have to be happy plugging the airwaves with good old 3G.
No pricing was attached to the entry, so we’ll have to wait until the device is closer to release for that information.
