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 microSD card (8GB of ROM for the 1GB of RAM variant, and 16GB of ROM for the 2GB of RAM version), 13MP main camera, five-megapixel webcam, 2,470mAh battery, and LTE capabilities.
As you’d expect from all the leaks, IPX7 certification is in, allowing the Moto G 2015 to be submerged in 1 meter (3 feet) of water for 30 minutes.
Special proprietary software features include Moto Display, Quick Capture, and Chop Twice (to easily turn on torch-mode by shaking the phone). If you’re in India, the Moto G 2015 can be yours starting midnight exclusively from Flipkart. The 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM model will go for INR11,999 (about $187), and the 2GB RAM with 16GB ROM model for INR12,999 (about $203).
AndroidCentral notes that there are also deals and offers on the table for those buying the Moto G 2015 before August 2, such as “the ability to receive 100 percent cashback, deep discounts on the Moto 360 that allows select customers to purchase the smartwatch for as low as INR1, and gift vouchers”.
Update: With Motorola’s big international event now concluded, we have a few extra details on the new Moto G and its availability. US pricing, for instance, will start at just about $180 for the phone’s 8GB/1GB option.
