Moto G retailer promo video surfaces early, attempts to confirm specs
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 further confirmation for a number of the phone’s hardware specs, including its 13MP/5MP camera setup, five-inch HD screen, and Snapdragon 410 SoC. Some of that comes from the video itself, while other details were revealed in the accompanying description – before it was pulled.
Yet while we recently saw the leak of extensive Moto Maker custom options for the new Moto G, all this video mentions are alternate shells – not nearly the same level of customization. That may just be a consequence of this video being for the Brazilian market, and we’ll see the full Moto Maker experience available elsewhere. At the least, there’s confirmation of the two storage capacities we saw leaked – though nothing about the 16GB option also delivering double the RAM.
While the original video’s gone from YouTube, you can access a downloaded copy through the link below, while it lasts.
Update: Here’s a re-uploaded copy. Watch while you can.
