Check out the new Moto G: leak delivers hardware pics

Going back a little over a month now, we’ve been hearing whispers about Motorola’s work towards a new Moto G. From the sound of things, this second-gen model (a Moto G2, perhaps?) would make some big changes, growing to offer a five-inch 720p display – though that could also mean the phone arriving with a noticeably steeper price tag than its predecessor did last year. Motorola’s invitation for its September 4 press event makes a new Moto G launch look like a near-certainty, and as we wait for our chance to go hands-on with this hardware ourselves, we’ve got a new leak to check out, featuring a bunch of photos of the new Moto G in the flesh.

What we’ve got here appears to be a good match with existing G2 leaks, showing off those dual front cut-outs that are either for stereo speakers, or just a symmetrical look for the earpiece and mic. We also get some shots of the phone’s rear and its interchangeable back panels, which appear to offer much the same level of customization available with the first Moto G.

As you can clearly see, the hardware here supports dual SIM cards, as well as microSD storage. The source repeats the idea that the phone will launch on September 4, not that we had any doubts, as well as mentions spec upgrades like the move to an 8MP main camera.

Sadly, we don’t get any update on possible pricing, and may have to wait until next week to get the full story there.
