It’s not Moto G2, It’s new Moto G XT1068

The device long rumored by the name Moto G2, may still be called Moto g. The successor of Moto g will be called Moto g only, according to recent leaks. Yesterday we had posted a leak from zauba website that listed the import data of new moto g devices. The listed had the model number of the ‘new Moto G.’

Yesterday’s import document also hints about the price of the new device. The price in the import list is Rs. 10,640. So when it appears on Flipkart, the price will be some were between Rs.11,000 and 13,000. This also means that the bigger 5 inch display did not increase the price of the phone.

The new Moto g will be launched in India on September 5. Motorola has scheduled an event on the date where they are expected to launch the new Moto X, Moto g and Moto 360 devices. There may be surprise launches as well. A new device called Moto Shamu too is making rounds in theĀ  rumor columns for a while. This device caries some superficial specifications.

The changes that we expect from the earlier version will be in the screen size which increases from 4.7 inch to 5 inch. The resolution of the display remains the same. Another change is the improvement in the camera. While the pixel count remains the same, the camera is rebuilt for improved picture quality. Other changes includes front speakers andĀ  more importantly the addition of microSD card.
