When Motorola was acquired by Google they tried to define a new concept in the smartphones business: A high-end device doesn’t necessarily need to be packed with the highest feature possible and on the other side a mid-range device doesn’t necessarily need to be short on some important features in order to be reasonably priced. To prove this concept, Motorola announced Moto X and Moto G in the last year and both devices were considered as successful devices in both user’s and critic’s reviews.

Regardless of the fact that Motorola is now owned by Lenovo, they are working hard to announce the newest members of this Moto family in order to keep the great memories of Moto G and Moto X alive. There are not much to say about the Moto X’s successor except a 1080p screen and a cute name: Moto X+1.

But the story for Moto G’s successor, Moto G2, is different as a reliable source claims to be holding the Moto G2 specs as well as a live image. When it comes to the specs, the Moto G2 is still loyal to the same 720p screen which we’ve already seen on the original Moto G. Since Moto G family is mainly targeting the emerging markets there will be also a Dual SIM variant and the main camera is equipped with a 8MP sensor.


At the moment it’s all that leaked and as we get closer to the actual launch date more specs and rumors will definitely pop out.

So, what do you thing about the Moto family, especially the budget-phone lineup called the Moto G?
