Motorola is launching its new flagship, the Moto X+1 at the end of September, but fans of the American company will not have to wait until then to get their next Moto device. Yes, we are expecting the Moto 360 soon as well, but the new Moto G is also in the pipeline, and according to GSM Arena it will be landing in the coming weeks before the Moto X+1.The website claims that a source within Motorola has said that the handset will launch on September 10th and will start shipping through retailers almost immediately. That means that September is likely to be a very busy month for Motorola, with a new flagship (Moto X+1), wearable (Moto 360), and this. The smartphone will be a sequel to the hugely acclaimed Moto G, a handset that disrupted the mobile market with its extreme affordability mixed with quality design and specs. We have seen in previous leaks that the Moto G2 (if that's its name) will be a little better looking than its predecessor and will take its design cues from the even cheaper Moto E. The G 2 will get a spec upgrade too, with the screen bumping from a 4.5-inch 720p panel to a 5-inch version. Under the hood there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC paired with 1GB of RAM, while an 8 megapixel lens will adorn the rear. The smartphone will also run the very latest version of Google's Android platform, Android KitKat. We are looking forward to this one arguably more than we are the Moto X+1, so will not have to wait too much longer. source: Android in Canada
