New batch of Moto G 2015 rumors headlined by July 28 ETA, waterproof body

In the end, the third-gen budget Android soldier is shaping up to be a major upgrade over its predecessor.

Remember all those tipsters that warned the 2014 Moto G’s sequel wasn’t a big deal, given the obvious limitations of the targeted $200 MSRP? While they were partially right, in departments like processing power, screen size and resolution or overall design, it seems the 2015 edition holds a bunch of winning aces up its sleeve.

First and foremost, extensive Moto Maker customization options. Also, and we’ve known this for quite some time, 13 MP “standard” photography prowess and 5 MP selfie capabilities. Just 24 hours ago, we heard 2 gigs of RAM and 16 GB internal storage space could be offered as costlier alternatives to the base 1/8 GB configuration.

The fresh theory is supported by a Brazilian publication that joins the gossip games, adding something very exciting and decidedly unexpected in the mix. Apparently, there’s a chance the Moto “G3” will withstand interaction to dust and water.

Tecmundo is talking about full-on liquid immersion protection, mind you, not only a splash-proof construction. IPx7 certification is reportedly in tow, alongside other premium stuff like 4G LTE connectivity across the board and a sizable 2,470 mAh battery. For the record, the “old” G packs a much tinier 2,070 mAh cell, despite measuring 5 inches in display diagonal as well.

Due in South American stores by the end of the month, the provocative stock Android 5.1 Lollipop-running handheld will purportedly break cover on July 28 and cost the equivalent of $285 in the homeland of soccer, hot coffee and hot girls. Fret not though, stateside it should still start at around $200… with 8 GB storage and 1 GB random-access memory.
