Fresh Moto G2 photos highlight bigger screen and camera boost

Hello Moto

Moto G

It's looking like Motorola may have quite a few handsets in the works, but the Moto G2 is undoubtedly one of the most highly anticipated, given how well-liked the original Moto G was.

It's expected that Motorola will announce the new handset at an event on September 4, but ahead of that a bunch of new shots supposedly showing it have been leaked by hellomotoHK and they've even created a teaser image which highlights the main differences between the Moto G and the Moto G2.

As you can see from the teaser below, the screen size will apparently be jumping from 4.5 inches to 5.0 inches and the G2 will also benefit from narrower bezels, so the overall footprint might not be that much bigger.

It will apparently have an 8MP camera, replacing the 5MP one on the Moto G, front-facing stereo speakers and a microSD card slot, which in fairness the Moto G with 4G has anyway, but the original version doesn't.

This information largely lines up with what we've already heard and previous rumours also suggest that it will have a 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM, all of which is the same as the original Moto G.

The new images show the front-facing speakers and otherwise look a lot like the original Moto G, complete with a curved, removable plastic back.

Unfortunately while specs point to the G2 being an improvement over the Moto G, early price rumours also suggest that it will be more expensive, possibly coming in at around £200.
