Motorola Moto G2 Leaks With New Features And Potential Lower Price

Motorola has been one of the busiest smartphone firms around this year, and it has taken a rather innovative approach to its new developments, looking to focus almost entirely on the lower end of the market than challenge those who have a stranglehold on the upper echelon. 

Earlier this year, it released the Motorola Moto E and the updated Moto G that came with new 4G capabilities. Both of these existed in the cheaper end of the market and it is these budget devices that are clearly going to be the focus moving forward for Motorola. It is believed to now be working on a follow up - the Motorola Moto G2.

New images have been leaked by the blog Mallondono Android, which purport to show the Moto G2, which shares many common features with its predecessor, but is something of an upgrade, which will be good news for those looking to trade in their phone to get their hands on the new device.

Images claim to show a handset that is very similar in its basic design to the Moto G, with the display being the same 1280 X 720 screen that we saw on the original, but as of yet it's unclear if the device will be the same size or larger than the one that came before it. 

The leaker did claim to know a little bit about the specs of the new phone, though, and, if true, it seems that Motorola has looked to add a little bit of a punch to the G2 by bringing in a new a quad-core ARM V7 (VFPv4 NEON) processor and an Adreno 305 GPU for the handset. 

It will also come with an 8MP camera as standard, which is a step up from the Moto G, and it will have the rare capability for two SIMs, allowing users to host two phone numbers on their device at the same time.

However, there was no detail given on things such as RAM, storage space internally and the battery capacity of the phone.
