A Chinese retailer has now made available an alleged LCD panel for the still unofficial Motorola Moto G2. An update to last year’s Motorola Moto G, the G offered a fair amount of hardware for price, and was widely seen by many as the best “budge” Android smartphone money could buy. Of course, it only makes sense Motorola would want to do a follow up, with rumors of the Moto G2 recently gaining traction around the net.

Today we have another, with TaoBao offering up a Moto G2 front panel assembly for the low-low price of ¥350 yaun (about $57). The display assembly shares the same front facing speaker cutouts as we saw in a previous leak, cluing us into Motorola’s design language for their “Moto” lineup for 2014. Whether or not any of these upcoming models will actually feature stereo sound (or just mono audio out the bottom speaker) remains to be seen.

We’ve gone ahead and edited the contrast on the image to make things a little easier to see, despite portions of the display’s circuitry on the bottom making things a little difficult. Although size wasn’t mentioned in the Chines retailer’s listing, most recent rumors point to a 5-inch 720p display.

We’ll let you know if we hear more, in the meantime Motorola has already announced their plans to host an event on the September 4th, where the Motorola Moto X+1, Motorola Moto G2, Motorola Moto 360, and some kind of Bluetooth headset are all expected to be in attendance.
