Motorola revealed Moto G’s next generation. Motorola has officially announced its successor to the Moto G, conveniently called the Moto G second generation or (Gen 2). Motorola has decided to follow the same exclusive partnership path that it followed with Moto G, Moto X and Moto E in India. The 16GB version of the Moto G second generation will be available through Flipkart from midnight tonight for Rs. 12,999. Its aggressive pricing and great features will be its biggest selling point.
Moto surprised its fans across the globe, the company has launched the smartphones first at its event in India, despite confusing reports of a launch event on Thursday in Chicago. With the popularity of the Moto G and Moto E in India however, the country’s importance to Motorola cannot be underestimated. Motorola also confirmed that its previous models Moto G, Moto X and Moto E will still be sold on Flipkart but will be phased out slowly.
The Moto G (Gen 2) will be available in two internal memory variants 8GB and 16GB. The biggest addition to the smartphone compared to the first-generation Moto G is the inclusion of a microSD card slot. The company hasn’t yet specified the maximum supported card capacity however.
The device will run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8226 Quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz supported by 1 GB RAM. Graphics on this handset will be supported via Adreno 305 GPU. Smartphone sports a 5 inch HD display. This device will operate on Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
There is no mention of an LTE radio on the page, though some markets will get a DTV option. Perhaps Motorola has another LTE upgrade model waiting in the wings, like the original Moto G. Also note that the unlocked phone is almost certainly for GSM networks only – Verizon and Sprint customers will have to wait for a CDMA model, if it ever comes.
