Motorola's Moto G and Moto X 2015 models may see a fall release date, while unconfirmed rumors regarding specs are surfacing. In the sections below, we will explore the current situation concerning the two mobile devices.
Moto G (2015) Release Date, Specs Rumors
Recently, the web was abuzz with speculation suggesting the Moto G (2015) will ship out starting July. However, many established gossip cliques favor the traditional Moto G launch cycle that falls between November and September.
As Android Pit eloquently states, rumors of "accelerated launch cycle are like ghost stories - they're always talked about but very rarely materialize."
It is entirely possible that the so-called Moto G 3rd Gen will show up this September at IFA 2015 in Germany. The previous Moto G (2014) was revealed at last year's IFA conference. So, it will be puzzling if Motorola fails to showcase the latest Moto G model.
The Chicago-based tech giant has yet to reveal spec details for the new Moto G, and will likely withhold that information until the inevitable debut. However, this has not discouraged rumors from starting.
Recently, there have been alleged photo leaks circulating on the internet - the validity of which remains in doubt. Most of these images are blurry, and tell very little about the device being shown.
Information from rumor sites is generally inconsistent. For instance, gossip regarding the Moto G's rear-facing camera range from 10MP to 16MP. Some sources say that the device sports a 5.2-inch HD display, while others claim that the screen is 5 inches. In short, it is better to take all rumors with a reasonable dose of skepticism.
Moto X (2015) Release Date, Specs Possibly Leaked
Like the new Moto G, the Moto X (2015) will likely be released according to Motorola's release cycle. This was hinted at in an earlier Tweet by Motorola president Rick Osterloch, who stated that his company will "stay on a roughly annual cycle for all of our products including Moto X."
Provided that Motorola follows the same time frame, the Moto X Gen 3 may be ready sometime between August and October 2015. Though Motorola has not made formal announcements for the new device, the existence of the Moto X (3rd Generation) is widely accepted throughout most tech circles.
In regards to specs, not much is known about Motorola's latest flagship. However, StjsGadgetsPortal recently posted up alleged leak information stating that the Moto X (2015) may come with the Snapdragon 808 processor, 4 GB RAM, and a 5.2-inch QHD display. Naturally, the publication's source is anonymous.
