The Moto G2 or G+1 (the official name is still unknown) is rumored to be available in the market by next month, according to one of the retailers who received the news from Motorola themselves. The 5-inch smartphone is being touted as the successor to the Moto G, called by some as the best Android phone for under $200.
According to the retailer, the Moto G2 can be officially purchased at retail stores by September 10. Some retailers will actually receive the units by end of this month, but may or may not be allowed to sell them before the official release date. There has been much anticipation for this new smartphone from Motorola and the continuous leaks have fuelled the excitement. What we know so far is that it will have a 720p display on its 5-inch screen and it will be running on a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU and Adreno 305 GPU with a Snapdragon 400 chipset.
The Moto G2 is rumored to have an 8 megapixel main camera that will allow 720p video recording and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera that will let you take selfies and video chat with your loved ones. It is expected to have 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage (with possible microSD expansion), which is not much compared to the newest smartphone models, but for its price range, it should be good enough.
As for its price, in Europe it is expected to retail at around €250 (that’s around USD$340) so it is a bit more expensive than the Moto G which was priced at $179. If the September 10 shipping date is true, then the Moto G2 (or G+1) will probably be announced at the upcoming IFA in the first week of September.
