If you are a Motorola fan then you may have noticed that silly season has started as a number of the company's core smartphones are up for renewal. That means the rumour mill is in full swing and we are hearing about upcoming replacements on an almost daily basis, including this, the apparent successor to the acclaimed Moto G.Motorola's DROID handsets and its Moto X flagship follow ups have already been spotted in the wild before being replaced later this summer. However, this is finally a look at arguably the most intriguing smartphone in the American company's range, the Moto G. The original Moto G was a huge success for Motorola and helped to reshape the budget market, an area that is now brimming with good handsets. The Moto G married unexpectedly good specs with a bargain price tag and even one year on it remains a compelling option. Of course, the company released an LTE version just a few months ago, but it seem the Moto G will get a complete overhaul this year, with the Moto G 2. If this device in the image is correct you can see that Motorola has addressed one of the only gripes of the original G. While offering huge bang for buck, the original Moto G was hardly a sexy looking device, which was a compromise that was worth living with for the low cost. However, this time Motorola is spreading its design wings a little more and the Moto G 2 looks to be a touch prettier, resembling the Moto E. Its rounded portraits and little flourishes (could those metal strips be stereo speakers?) make the G 2 a nice looking handset, especially when we consider it will cost around $200. As for specs, details are scarce, but we expect Motorola to give the G 2 are marginal bump over the original model. source: Android Guys
