If you love the Moto G you will love the two new versions being released this year. Motorola just announced two versions of the updated mid-range budget smartphone, which is a mix of new and old features. Most of the important elements are changed and upgraded while some of the more affordable features are left unchanged.
The new Moto G smartphones get extra RAM and more storage, plus a better camera. They retain the 2014 5” 720p screen but the tech under the chassis is a bit different, starting with a Snapdragon 410 processor. The main camera is upgraded to a 13MP snapper and the front gets a 5MP camera too. The Moto G devices also get LTE connectivity and IPX7 water resistance, which means they can last to a dive of up to a meter for 30 minutes. The devices get a 2470 mAh battery to power everything up.
The two Moto G models are different in the sense that one has 1 GB of RAM and 8GB of storage and the other has 2 GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Both versions present microSD slots to increase storage if needed. As it happens with all Motorola devices launching this year, both Moto G’s get turbo fast charging.
The G’s will be sold on Motorola’s website to some markets and they will be unlocked. They will run on Android 5.1 software right out of the box. The G’s will also get access to Moto Maker, apart from the standard white and black variants. The price for selling them will be a third of the price of flagship ones, which puts it somewhere in the price-range of currently marketed models. The 1GB /8GB version will sell for $179 and the 2GB/ 16GB version will sell for $219.99.
Both Moto G 2015 versions start selling today, so you can get your own if you really want to change your smartphone today!
