Motorola announces Moto G 2015

Motorola has announced the third-generation of the Moto G, available from today, and bringing upgraded internals and a refreshed design language.

The Moto G 2015 comes with a 5-inch 1280 x 720 pixel LCD display, a quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chip, a 13MP rear camera with an f2.0 lens, a 5MP front-facing camera and a 2,470mAh battery.

The Moto G 2015 will be highly customizable, with replaceable coloured backs that snap on and off depending on one’s mood. But this year’s model is IPX7 certified, allowing it to be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

Motorola is finally giving users the choice to buy a Moto G variant with more RAM, offering a 2GB model that pairs with 16GB of storage; the base model will still feature the 1GB/8GB combo we’ve come to expect from the company. And this year’s model will have a microSD slot for expandable storage, which works particularly well with Android 5.1.1.
