Rumor: 5-inch Moto G2 to launch September 10th, starts at €250

moto-g-2

Motorola’s continuing their line of affordable smartphones this September if rumors are to believed. It’s said that the Chicago company will look to launch the Moto G2 on September 10th. It’s not often we get such a pointed release date in a rumor like this so we’ll have to see if that holds up.

The Moto G2 is expected to come with a 5-inch 720p display and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 chipset, a 1.2GHz SoC that features an Adreno 305 GPU. Other rumored specs include 1GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel camera and Android 4.4.4 KitKat. The device could come in at a price point of about €250. That’s certainly far more than the original Moto G launched for, but perhaps this one will launch with 4G LTE radios by default instead of us having to wait for a follow-up device. Guess we’ll be finding out soon enough.

    So Moto 360 Sept 10th also? JK on topic, we shall see if their shift away from a more affordable price point works out.

    • Jason E Perkins

      Even if they up the G’s price, Motorola will still have the Moto E to cover the low end.

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see the E/G/X come in at something like $150/$250/$350 or $125/$300/$400.

    Hopefully they go with a Moto G² or something different. Confuse people when they say they have a G2 and it doesn’t have the rear controls like the LG one has

      Moto G+1?

    Bumping the specs on the G is the smarter move I think. There are plenty of ‘low end’ 5 inch offerings. IMHO the G has been such a killer phone because of it’s LOW cost, small size and great screen (for it’s size). If you bump the G to 5 then the screen will suck compared to other 5″ers.

    A 5-inch phone with 720 display and 1GB of RAM? What bizarre specs.

    • Max

      considering the price of 259$ I’d say what underwhelming specs ….

      • dhinged

        I’d actually say those are pretty good specs for the price, I just think it’s weird to have a 5-inch screen with those specs. That seems more fitting for a 4.5-4.7″ screen.

    4.3″ display would match all the other specifications perfectly.
    The 4.3″ phone would fit the palm of my hand better than 5″.
    Having 4.3″ smartphone in my trousers pocket would make me feel much more comfortable then having a 5″ phablet in it instead.
