But we can all calm down again, as the Moto G Forte has been made official – in Mexico, at least – and it's nowhere near as interesting as the rumours have been suggesting.
In fact, the Motorola Moto G Forte is nothing more than a standard Moto G that arrives encased in a Motorola Grip Shell in the box. That's right – the only difference is that it comes with an extra casing that you can pick up yourself already for £9.99.
That's not to criticise the Grip Shell as a waste of money or anything. We're sure it works well and does indeed beef up your Moto G's physical attributes. But since when does sticking an existing accessory onto an existing smartphone before selling it warrant calling it something completely different?
To make it completely clear, we're talking a completely standard Moto G – you know, 4.5in 720p display, Snapdragon 400 processor, Android 4.4 KitKat etc – with a rubberised grip stuck on it.
Anyway, it seems the Moto G Forte is targeted purely at Latin America, so we won't bother losing too much sleep over the whole thing.
