2015 Moto G Revealed In Leaks?

By James O Malley on at

If the rumours are to be believed, the above image is Motorola's 2015 update to its mid-range Moto G. Apparently its internal codename is "Osprey", and it is technically known as model number XT1540.

Our pals at TechRadar spotted the TechnoBuffalo scoop.

If accurate, the 2015 iteration of the phone is expected to come with a 5" screen, Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage and will run Android Lollipop (which is still the latest Android until the Autumn). It will also sport a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera.

The new phone looks set to the be the first Moto G handset from Moto under its new owner, the Chinese giant Lenovo, which bought the company from Google in October last year. Here's hoping that there's another Fisher Price Press Conference to announce it officially.

We've got high hopes for this new handset - previously Gizmodo has argued that we're living in a golden age of Motorola, and in our review of last year's model, we were stunned at how good it was given the budget price. Slightly unexpectedly, last year's model was also the first to get Android Lollipop too, ahead of even Google's 'official' Nexus line, so it will be interesting to see if the 2015 iteration can repeat the trick.

Obviously nothing official has been said yet, but we would expect to hear something around September if the phone is indeed real. [TechnoBuffalo]
