Moto G 3rd Gen makes brief appearance on retailer’s website



There’s little doubt Motorola will follow up their widely successful mid-range Moto G (2nd Gen) with a followup this year. Moto CEO Rick Osterloh practically said as much in a tweet last month where he reiterated the company’s rough yearly release cycle. With the Moto G 2nd Gen’s first birthday just a few months away, it’s no surprise that we’d start seeing the first few “leaks” make their way online, no matter how small.

Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen 2015

Sure enough, a listing for a the Moto G 3rd Gen popped up on Indian retailer Flipkart’s website although not many details were given. It did, however, reveal a possible model number — AP3560AD1K8 — something you might want to keep a look out for in the future. While it’s possible Flipkart was merely trying to get a head start on Moto G 2015 SEO, the post was immediately taken down after it was discovered.

More than anything, we’re just curious to see how Motorola will improve on the 3rd generation Moto G. The phone already offers a tremendous combination of solid hardware and great performance for an affordable price. If Motorola can finally at 4G LTE, we could see the device become a break out hit in the prepaid market.

  1. “mid-range”.. ha ha ha, I don’t do “mid-range”

    1. I used to do mid ranged

      1. We all have to start out somewhere.. I just went straight to flagship level from day 1 with the OG Motorola Droid slider – and I never looked back.

        1. Started with the first lg optimus and eventually made it to the premium devices. Will never do mid range again!!

          1. Well, some of us don’t have the cash to continuously spend $500 to $700 for a smartphone. The moto G cost me $199 and is more than capable for what I need it for. I’m sure others would also agree.

          2. I started with the g1 then g2 vibrant(team whiskey and trigger for the win! (That phone was barely ever stock) s3 galaxy Nexus nexus 4 nexus 5 and now a one plus soon to be a nexus 6 and also the new one plus.

          3. Personally I buy last year’s flagship when it’s about 1.5 years old for $200 used. E.g. galaxy s4 last year in december, s5 this december, etc. I’m fairly certain a used s5 this year will be more powerful and the same price compared to a new 3rd gen moto g when it comes out. The only benefit the G might have over the S5 is if it supports newer cell bands, like band 12 on tmobile.

        2. Started with the OG Droid Incredible. My brother had one as well and just switched last fall. It was still running OK but the battery was shot, so he figured it was time.

  2. This is the kind of phone you buy as a backup, in case your main driver suddenly bites the dust :)

    1. Like mine did last night. :(

      1. What kind of phone is that ?

        1. Droid Turbo. There’s an article he did on what happened on the main page.

      2. Still scratching my head about how you managed that Chris damn..

  3. If I could get a first gen unlocked for around $50, I would consider it.

    1. I did. On craigslist. But it’s a cricket device. Ugh. No lollipop for me

      1. I am looking for an unlocked version lol.

  4. Mid-range phones will soon be very capable competitors to the flagships. I don’t need the latest and greatest, just a good user experience

    1. S3 can be had on Craigslist for $100. It is more capable than most of these mid range phones. Just install Nova launcher on it and it is pretty darn close to lollipop.

  5. The Moto G 2nd gen has been my daily driver for the past 9 months. Fantastic phone. Do yourself a favor and fork the extra cash and get the 16gb model when the 3rd gen comes out though. SD capabilities aside, you need at least 16GB of internal storage just for apps (especially considering FB takes up 200 megs. Wth?)

    1. I’ve been advocating that 8GB droids should be criminal and just outright a money grab. If anything that these 3rd tier Chinese phones can teach us, that 16GB phones aren’t that expensive to produce.

      1. Amen to that, brother!

  6. Way too much bezel

  7. I love this little phone that could. From a mainstream mfg, it will have support, and it cost a nickel. Now all that’s needed, is a current soc(qualcomm), higher dpi screen, more pixels(camera), and it’s a hit again. Will be the best bang for your buck, again. Perfect phone for customizing
