The Moto G saga continues: Rumours around the release date of Moto G5

Since November 2013, we have seen a bunch of low range smartphones from Motorola, all named Moto G, until last year when the new owner Lenovo announced the fourth generation Moto G, more aptly named as Moto G4 with three variants, namely Moto G4, Moto G4 plus and Moto G4 play.

A report has suggested that in future we are going to see the fifth generation of Moto G, and we hope, that it would have been named Moto G5.

The highly speculated release date:
As the release dates of all the generations of Moto G always coincide with the MWC, the biggest mobile trade show of the year, we can expect this tradition to be consistent this year too.

Two dates have already gained the spotlight in mobile arena; one being 26th Feb 2017. The day has been selected by Motorola for inaugurating an event just before the day of MWC 2017 on 27th Feb 2017. Keeping that in mind, we can speculate that Moto G 5th generation would have been incubated by the authority. moto_g4Features and specifications: 

1. Processor:
The rumour is that Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 will feature in this phone. It promises 35% lower battery usage than the previous Snapdragon 617. This budget phone also includes Adreno 506 GPU. This phone will obviously run the newest Android Nougat and possibly we’ll see the micro USB swapped with USB C.

2. Design:
A source confirms a 5.5 inch full HD screen, 4GB RAM and 32GB storage, an octa-core processor based on Cortex-A 53, Micro USB and a headphone jack. We are hoping more than one variant of Moto G fifth generation as previous.

Price:
The expected price range of this phone should be around £150-£170 which is a good starting price for a low range budget smartphone.

Conclusion:
Speculation paves the way to excitement as we all wait in anticipation for Moto to make a mark with the G5.

Motorola Moto X3, a 5 inch phone is coming soon

Motorola Mobility remained quite this year and did not announce any products. The only change seen in the company was in its CEO, Rick Osterloh. On the other hand, the company which is now taken over by Lenovo suggested that we shall soon be receiving new Moto X, Moto G and Moto E smartphones.

One of the upcoming Motorola phones will be named as Moto X3, which is the name shown in a listing in Zauba, a website that tracks imports and exports to and from India. The website is listing “Motorola Moto X3”, though it’s quite unlikely that “Motorola” branding will be used on the final product. On the other hand, we are expecting this phone to come with “Lenovo” branding. Overall, these phones will feature 5 inch display and single SIM GSM.

Moto-X3

Also, the X3 moniker is a bit confusing because Motorola never released its Moto X phones with a Moto X2 name, the latest one from the manufacturer is the Moto X Pure Edition. In the past also, Zauba revealed the names of various unannounced smartphone, so we are a bit inclined to believe that Moto X3 is a real one.

Earlier this week, we heard about two other unreleased Moto models with model numbers XT1700 and XT1706. These two handsets are the part of Moto E series and will feature 5 inch displays with 720 pixels resolution. Both these smartphones will come powered by MediaTek processors and 2 GB RAM for faster processing speed. These run on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system. Currently, we don’t know how the new Moto X3 will compare to the above mentioned XT1700 and XT1706 but we hope to find this out soon.
