    Motorola's got the Moto G 2015 officially unveiled in India before its introduction at the New York event that's about to happen in an hour or so, at 9a Eastern, today. We think it's safe to assume that whatever information we're seeing regarding the Moto G 2015, will apply to the phone that will be subject, among others, of the NYC event. As some of the leaks suggested, the Moto G 2015 features a five-inch display with 720p resolution (294PPI), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, 1GB and 2GB of RAM versions, 8GB and 16GB storage options, both expandable via ...

    We have got a busy day ahead of us in the smartphone world, with major launches from two Android OEMs just hours away. OnePlus may be first on the agenda with the launch of the OnePlus 2, streaming live in VR tonight starting at 10pm EDT, but just hours later Motorola is broadcasting an announcement of its own, and while the company is keeping a tighter lid on things than OnePlus, we're almost certainly about to see the launch of a new Moto X and new Moto G model. Come with us as we take a few minutes looking at what we've heard so far, and thinking about what hardware we're likely to see ...

    Tomorrow's Motorola event will be here soon, and before that announcement even gets here (bright and early tomorrow morning), we'll be stopping back in with all the rumors and leaks we've heard so far to bring you up to speed on  what to expect. Prior to us getting to that rumor round-up, though, we've got at least one more fresh entry to share with you, as some new details arrive about new Moto X hardware. Considering how many leaks have focused on the new Moto G rather than the Moto X, this is a nice bit of last-minute catch-up. While earlier Moto X leaks have show off the physical form ...

    In these images you can allegedly see a Moto G 2015 unboxed early. With all the recent leaks around the soon-to-become official smartphone, we have no reason to doubt the veracity of these stills. The phone has been heavily leaked, from pictures, to rumors, from its looks and Moto Maker options, down to its specs. You can find everything here, in our dedicated Moto G 2015 hub. The box shown, despite having its text in Portuguese (so probably either a European local version, or a Brazilian unit) features a black unit with a blue and green cover (Motorola Shells), and, as you can see in the ...

    For all we've heard about Motorola's third-gen Moto G, which by all accounts will launch on Tuesday, there are still a few big unanswered questions. Considering how the Moto G is positioned as a more affordable alternative to the Moto X, pricing is a big factor that will help dictate the phone's ultimate success, but so far we haven't had a great sense for just how much the phone might end up costing. Would it follow in the footsteps of the first two Moto G models, priced at just about $180 at launch? This evening, a new carrier leak attempts to answer that question. So far our best ...

    Are these Motorola smartphone leaks ever going to slow down? With the week drawing to a close, next Tuesday's Motorola event is practically upon us, and they're showing no signs of slowing down. After a couple days of retailers accidentally publishing promotional materials early, and in-store carrier displays leaking, we're back in good ol' fashioned hands-on territory this morning, as we have the opportunity to check out some brand new pics of the 2015 Moto G in the flesh. Besides just offering us some very nice images of the handset, the source behind these pics provides some brief ...

    The Moto X is one of the most universally liked smartphones in the tech space. It's affordable, the software is close to stock with some compelling added features, and it's the most customizable phone money can buy (at least, until Project Ara hits the market). You can choose your own backing and accent colors, add a message to the boot screen, engrave your name or favorite phrase onto the back, and even train it to answer to your own voice or launch phrase. All of this makes the Moto X feel tailor-made just for you, but it makes you wonder ... would the Moto X still receive all of its ...

    Motorola is almost certainly launching the new Moto G next week, but from all appearances the mid-ranger's been doing everything in its power to break cover in advance of its formal arrival. We've seen no shortage of leaks in the weeks leading up to the manufacturer's July 28 event, and this afternoon we've got another big one to share with you, as one retailer (seemingly accidentally) publishes a new Moto G promo video just a few days early. Brazilian retailer Americanas has already yanked the clip off YouTube, but not before it was able to be copied. As a result, we've managed to pick up ...

    Earlier this month, AT&T users with the first-gen Moto X started receiving a long-overdue update, bringing Android 5.1 Lollipop to their phones. Considering how the last major update was in November, and left the phone still running KitKat, this was a major step forward,. However, something seemed to have gone wrong, and back on Monday AT&T announced that it was temporarily suspending distribution of the update. Presumably, there was something wrong with the code, but at the time no one who knew for sure seemed to be sharing any details. The update's still not back on just yet, but ...

    Just a short while ago we were treated to this 2015 Moto X leak -- revealing the front-facing flash for selfies, and containing a strange report on a purported fingerprint scanner, and its weird placing -- and now we're looking at its cheaper sibling, the 2015 Moto G (after a previous carrier leak detailing specs and waterproofing). We first heard about the 2015 Moto Maker with the occasion of a July 14 Evan Blass leak, and today's report seems to confirm what we've previously heard, and shed some light on additional details. There's no way in verifying whether we're looking at an ...

    Update: A couple of pictures (renders) surfaced showing off what appears to be a gold/champagne and white color combination of the 2015 Moto X. Find it at the bottom! Motorola has a special event scheduled for July 28, and, while we know to expect an announcement, we don't really know how many phones there will be. The more optimistic claim we'll see the 2015 Moto X, 2015 Moto G, and a ruggedized version of the Moto X, while the skeptical believe that only the 2015 Moto G will see the light of day, judging by the low count of 2015 Moto X leaks. For the latter, we present you with a 2015 ...

    Motorola's Moto G began life as a 4.5-inch smartphone, but for its second generation with saw the handset grow to a 5.0-incher. We've been looking forward to the third-gen Moto G for months now, and the past few weeks have been jam-packed with all manner of leaks, hoping to give us an early look at the phone – leaks that have been quite consistent in establishing that the 5.0-inch screen size was returning for this year's model. While we probably won't get official word until Motorola's event next week, today we pick up some very formal-looking evidence, as a leaked display card from a ...

    The new Motorola Moto G has been one of the most leaked phones in recent memory, popping up in pic after pic as we look forward to Motorola's launch event next week. Recently, we've been seeing those leaks expand to cover some premature retailer listings, and shared one such posting with you overnight. But as shouldn't be too surprising when we've got an unannounced device like this, not everyone agrees on all the specifics, and this afternoon we're checking out yet another Moto G 2015 retailer page, this one painting a very different picture of the smartphone. Didn't love the Snapdragon ...

    We only need to put up with 2015 Moto X and 2015 Moto G rumors, reports, and leaks, for about a week or so, as Motorola is holding a special event on July 28, where we will hopefully see both aforementioned phones, and maybe even a ruggedized version of the 2015 Moto X, dubbed the Moto X Sport. Until then, however, we take what we can get, and this report seems to unveil some 2015 Moto G specs. The information has been published on Spanish retailer FNAC's website, but still, we advise you to treat it with skepticism, despite matching some of the information from previous reports. We ...

    As we mentioned a little earlier today when checking out one of the latest leaks of upcoming Motorola smartphone hardware, despite the Moto X being arguably the more exciting of the handsets we're looking forward to, the new Moto G has been positively dominating the leaks that have arrived to date. That continues to be true this afternoon, as we take a look at a couple pics of what's reportedly a new Moto G store dummy unit, one that gives us a peak at the phone's defenses against environmental onslaught. The existing Moto G, you may remember, offers water resistance, and while the ...

    Motorola's upcoming July 28 event is all over our thoughts this week, especially as we look to pick up any last-minute leaks helping to prepare our expectations for the company's announcements. And while we're certainly looking forward to a nice selection of smartphones, what about other mobile products? Despite how much we might like to see a new Moto 360, that's still very much a long shot, but there's one accessory that now definitely looks like it will be making an appearance, as a newly revised Moto Hint wireless earbud make an early debut. It may look just like the first Moto Hint, ...

    In just over a week, on July 28, Motorola's holding an event that all indications point to being its launch platform for new smartphone hardware - and specifically we're expecting to see the company introduce the new Moto X and new Moto G. Of the two, it's this year's Moto G that's found itself the star of the majority of recent Motorola leaks, including some recent hands-on pics, and we've been left with a pretty strong sense of what to expect from the smartphone. Today we add to all that unofficial info with some data from a much more formal source, while also getting new corroboration ...

    And "tweak, tweak, tweak" go the little mouses at Motorola. Skeumorphs, component and material orders, machine settings, marketing plans, Motorola. We are expecting a bevy of new devices from the Lenovo subsidiary including updates to its flagship Moto X series and the affordable Moto G and Moto E lineups. Another two phones have shown up as slight tweaks of the aforementioned: the Moto X Sport and the Moto G Nuevo. Keeping in mind that Motorola has also has another Verizon-incentivized Droid phone on the way. The company might be able to rebadge it as an international powerhouse as it has ...

    Motorola sure appears to be working on a number of new handsets, as recent leaks have been only too willing to reveal. We've not only had the opportunity to check out a bunch of newly leaked photos, but finally started closing in on a launch date, with a rumor suggesting that at least one of these models – the next-gen Moto G – could be getting ready to make its debut on July 28. Today that date picks up some official backing, as Motorola starts sending out announcements for a launch event. As you can see above, Motorola warns us that our relationship status (with our phones, that is) ...

    Just recently we looked at some leaked, real-life images, of the upcoming 2015 Moto G, and what we have here (in the image above), might very well turn out to be the 2015 Moto X. We can't say we're skeptical but we're a bit confused, as Motorola is preparing several handsets, according to some recent filings, as well as leaked images of backplates. Talking about those backplates, the phone in the image above looks to be exactly the one on the left in the image below. That doesn't make things any clearer, and, while it might very well be the 2015 Moto X, it could also be another Droid that ...

    July 28 is when you should prepare to hear official word from Motorola on the 2015 Moto G, according to a recent report, one that also confirms some of the upcoming phone's specs, as well as hints that the device will be waterproof. We've already seen renders of the device, and even some alleged images and videos, but this set of stills clearly claims to depict the upcoming 2015 Moto G in the flesh (well, plastic, silicon, and glass). According to the leak, the 2015 Moto G will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, like previously rumored, and 2GB of RAM (different reports claimed ...

    These are exciting times for Motorola fans as we're hearing (and seeing) a lot of cool things about the company and its upcoming products. Lots of devices are popping up in certification documents, the Moto Maker could be enabled to customize the upcoming (2015, 3rd generation) Moto G, and the new Moto X, alongside the Moto G, and some other Droids are starring in the latest Motorola-themed leak. Talking about the 2015 Moto G, a report from Brazil tries to fill in the blanks and anticipate even more details of the device. The 2015 Moto G will allegedly see the light of day on July 28, a ...

    The floodgates have been opening on new Motorola hardware lately, with rumors and leaks detailing not just a next-gen Moto X and Moto G, but maybe also some fresh Droid models for Verizon. Yesterday we had the chance to check out a photo of the back panel of what was supposedly one of those Droids, revealing a design that largely mirrored earlier Moto G leaks, while being just different enough to suggest we really were looking at some new hardware. Today that same source does us one better, offering a new pic that compares not two, not three, but four of these soon-to-launch Motorola ...

    Motorola's Moto Maker, the offering that allows you to completely customize your hardware at purchase, is currently available for the Moto X smartphone, and Moto 360 smartwatch. Future owners of lower-end/budget models, like the Moto G or Moto E, are not yet able to custom-build their future smartphones, but that's about to change if this latest Evan Blass leak is accurate. Not many bits of information have been shared (leaked), except "moto-g-maker" and the image above. However, in this case, this is more than enough to go by. It will likely go live (if the leak is accurate), at the time ...

    It's almost a summer ritual, at this point. Year after year (at least, the last couple), this season has been dominated for the most part by Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy Note, and Motorola phone rumors. This summer is no exception, with the subjects in question this time around being a bunch of upcoming Motorola devices. Let's break down all these Motorola smartphones making appearances in Federal Communications Commission certification documents. First, let's talk about what our best guess (and Droid Life's, too) has us thinking is the company's 2015 flagship smartphone. The FCC filing ...
