Motorola’s third-generation Moto G has been leaked in full with specifications and pricing tipped by the company’s official online retail partner in India, Flipkart, ahead of the firm’s Tuesday launch event.
In line with recent rumours, the Flipkart listing suggested that the Motorola Moto G (Gen 3) will be available in two variants – 8GB inbuilt storage with 1GB of RAM, and a 16GB storage with 2GB of RAM. According to the Flipkart listing (now pulled down), the Moto G (Gen 3) will be available at Rs. 11,999 for the 8GB variant.
Some of the other details of the handset seen on the Flipkart listing include dual-SIM (Micro-SIM cards) support with 4G LTE connectivity; a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3; Android 5.1.1 Lollipop; a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor; an Adreno 306 GPU; expandable storage support via microSD card (up to 32GB); a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual-LED flash; a 5-megapixel front camera, and a 2470mAh battery. The listing was first spotted by Techdroider and seems to be a teaser listing for interested consumers on Flipkart’s mobile app as the bottom of the screen notes, “Thank you for your interest. We will notify you when the product is available.”
The retailer also listed an image of the Moto G (Gen 3) that was in line with previous leaks. The front of the Motorola Moto G (Gen 3) looks largely similar to the second-generation Moto G.
Unfortunately, the rear panel of the handset was not shown in the purported listing. An LG-like vertical strip near the rear camera on the Moto G (Gen 3) has been leaked several times housing the rear camera at one end and the Motorola logo at the other. A dual-LED flash was also seen placed on the strip.
Notably, the Flipkart listing however misses out on some details, such as there is no mention about IPX7 certification, which has been anticipated for the Moto G (Gen 3) for a long time.
It’s also worth noting that Flipkart is no longer listing the Moto G (Gen 2) for the sale in India tipping that the second-generation handset might be phased out soon after the company launched the new Moto G.
In a separate leak, images of the Motorola Moto G (Gen 3)’s box packaging have surfaced on the Internet. The images come courtesy Hello Moto HK and show the box contents alongside innards of the handset, which are in line with previous leaks.
A publication also separately claims to have got its hands on the Moto G (Gen 3), and has posted another set of images to the Web. Visible on the rear panel is the same LG-like strip with the rear camera on top, and the Motorola logo at the bottom.
Motorola has already confirmed an event on Tuesday where the company is expected to launch its new Moto G (Gen 3) and Moto X (Gen 3) smartphones.
