In case you missed it, notorious leakster @evleaks tweeted an image of a promotional flyer or brochure for the rumored Moto G. The Moto G is supposed to be a more affordable follow up to the Moto X. The tweet detailed that the Moto G would sport a 4.5 inch screen and 1.5GHz quad core processor. However, a new leak has popped up, this time capturing the entire promo flyer, and it appears that the first leak was mistaken about the CPU. Rather than a 1.5GHz chip, the Moto G will rock a quad core chip that’s clocked at a more conservative 1.2GHz.
It’s a bit of a bummer, but it’s not too bad. And at least we’re getting a much more detailed look at the Moto G and its specs. Based on the new leak, the SoC will be Qualcomm-made, the camera will be limited with just a 5mp sensor, and storage at 8GB. Also, there won’t be any LTE support, just 3G/HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. At least it will run Android 4.3 out of the box.
These leaked specs are pointing to a rather modest offering, but Google and Motorola made a point about focusing on the user experience rather than just the specs when they originally launched the Moto X, so hopefully they will be able to pull that off again with the Moto G.
