Along with the Moto X+1 it seems Motorola is also hard at work on the Moto G's follow-up.

New images and specs of the rumored Moto G2 have shown up on Mallandono Android. It looks like the updated handset will have a very similar style to the original Moto G and share the same screen resolution of 1280 x 720. However, there's no word on actual display size.

Purported specs suggest the Moto G2 will be slightly beefed up with a quad-core ARM V7 (VFPv4 NEON) processor and an Adreno 305 GPU.

The Moto G successor will also supposedly sport an 8MP rear camera have have dual SIMS, meaning it can host two phone numbers at once.

There's still a lot unknown about the handset including details on RAM, storage space and battery size, but this is a good start.

Lowest bid wins

Along with the rumored specs and images comes the tantalizing whisper that the handset could be sold at a lower price than the $179/£100 (about AU$190) Moto G. Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside hinted as much back in January asking, "Why can't these devices be $50?"

In the past Motorola has done better in the smartphone market with its affordable Moto G and Moto E handsets than the lukewarm reception of the Moto X. In these circumstances, makes sense that the Lenovo-conscripted company would be interested in making the next Moto G even more affordable.
