The Moto G2 release date could be soon, but you won't like the price

Retailer outs potential disappointment

Moto G

The Moto X+1 isn't the only rumored Motorola phone whose release date may have just been outed.

Hours after the leak that said the Moto X successor will launch September 25 comes another report from GSM Arena claiming the Moto G2 will be released September 10.

This Moto G2 (or possibly Moto G+1) release date seems to apply to Europe and possibly the UK, since the site also gives a possible price of €250 (about $335, £200, AU$360).

These numbers come from a retailer who reportedly got them straight from Motorola, so they may have some merit.

Money = power

As the site points out the alleged price is double what the original Moto G cost, which goes directly against the earlier rumor that the G2 could be even cheaper than its predecessor.

Will its specs live up to the price hike? The Moto G2 or Moto G+1 has been benchmarked in the past, and it looks like it will have a bigger screen (five inches at 720p) and several upgraded specs.

These include a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chip, 8GB of storage, 8- and 2-megapixel cameras, and Android KitKat.

But unfortunately it currently seems like the Moto G successor's RAM will remain stuck at 1GB.

With less than a month to go until the Moto G2's alleged release date, expect Motorola to make an announcement soon, possibly at IFA 2014 in early September.
