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.

I know what you mean, before getting my nexus 5 i was stuck with a Canadian droid 3. 3ish months+/- after coming to Canada droid 4 comes out. droid 4 gets ics droid 3 gets stuck on ginger bread. When you buy a product and literally get 0 support it leaves a pretty nasty taste in your mouth. Also the Canadian variant of the droid 3 had slightly different internals from the American one so the community wasn't able to get working builds of ics or jellybean once they moved to kessex style roms.
The phone itself was built pretty sturdy dropped it a million times and worst it got were scuff marks. My keyboard didn't fair as well though, keys begun to not register which severely slowed down typing and forced me to embrace swype style software keyboards. I understand that Motorola has gotten better with support but at this point I'll never reward them with my money again. Learned my lesson.
