Innocent typo on Flipkart’s part, or revealing exposé?
Keeping tabs on all the marginally different Moto G and E configurations released on the heels of Motorola’s unexpected first low-cost Android hit back in late 2013 is no easy feat. Technically, both lineups include merely a couple of separate device generations.
In reality though, the OG G also got a pair of LTE-enabled remakes, while the 2015 E has become near-impossible to distinguish from early G installments. And now, they say a third-gen Moto G is nigh. Already? Well, yeah, given the 2014 G was, well, launched in 2014.
Specifically, September 2014, so the typical one-year upgrade window is set to stay open for a few more months. But since Snapdragon 400 and 720p screen resolution have stopped being the mid-range standard, it’s probably best to speed up the series rejuvenation process.
Could we be looking at the first octa-core, 1,080p-capable Moto G family member? It’s too early to know for sure, and Flipkart, the Indian e-commerce company that alluded to an imminent G3 debut, let nothing slip in the specification department.
They just listed the unannounced handheld for a little while, in a modest 8 GB SKU, then wiped any trace of it from the website. The “damage” has been done though, and there’s no reason to hide. Unless it was all an unfortunate technical blunder, which we highly doubt.
Almost certainly, Flipkart has the skinny on Motorola’s next budget soldier, and all we can do is speculate. Would we ask for too much if we hoped the 2015 Moto G brought a 1,920 x 1,080 pix res 5.2-inch display and 64-bit Snapdragon 615 processor to the table? How about at least an S610 with matching 2 GB RAM? 4G LTE connectivity as standard? A 13 MP camera, perhaps?
