Moto G2 to feature mostly the same innards, but will include an upgraded camera

The Motorola Moto G was introduced late last year as a low-cost (off-contract) smartphone. Offering up a 4.5” 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and 16GB of internal storage, the phone offered quite a bit of value for its $179 price tag. Motorola upped the ante in May by introducing an LTE version of the Moto G for $219.


Is this the new Moto G2?
 
Now, according to a new leak, the successor to the Moto G will be soon upon us. The so-called Moto G2 will reportedly retain its Snapdragon 400 processor and 720p screen resolution. However, the phone gains dual-SIM capabilities and an 8MP rear shooter (up from 5MP). It’s also possible that LTE functionality might be included at the $179 price point instead of the current $40 upsell.
 
In other Motorola news, the Moto X is currently be offering with up to $75 in instant discounts via the by using the code “MBXISMOT” on the Moto Maker website. The discount takes $50 off the price of 16GB model and $75 off 32GB and 64GB models. That means that the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB Moto X will now run you $299.99, $324.99, and $374.99 respectively.

The Moto X promotion expires on July 23.

RE: Enjoying my Moto G

I've had a Moto X as a backup phone to my HTC One M8 for a while but before that it was my primary phone with my Droid Razr M acting as a backup. Those Motorola phones have a nice solid build to them, even the budget models. I've dropped my Razr M a couple of times and very little damage was done to the casing and none to the screen. The signal and voice quality is top notch as well, and while not the greatest the camera is pretty high quality especially after the update (though 4.4.2 did cause my Razr M to act weird).

I would love to get my hands on the next gen Moto X or Moto G especially if it has dual front speakers (I don't like plugging in headphones just to watch youtube videos while lying on the couch or on my bed). Sure I have my One M8 but when that's on the charger the Moto can be used aside from should anything unfortunate happen to the M8...
