Motorola Moto G successor leaked: design refresh, almost identical specs?

Motorola Moto G successor leaked: design refresh, almost identical specs?The smartphone world loves its sequels, especially when it's rebooting a successful device, so we've been expecting to hear details about a successor to Motorola's popular Moto G for a while now.

And today's the day, thanks to Spanish site Mellando no Android, which has furnished us with both a pic of the alleged Moto G2 (as we'll refer to it for now) and some news on its specs.

Visually, the follow up to the Moto G seems to take a fair few design cues from the more recently announced Moto E, certainly when it comes to the dual speaker/microphone grilles above and below the display.

With no side-on or rear view, however, it's hard to say much more about the second generation Moto G's appearance at this stage.

So on to the provided specs, which are a bit perplexing to be honest, as they're basically identical to the current Moto G aside from bumping up the camera from 5MP to 8MP.

So that's still a 4.5in 720p display, Snapdragon 400 CPU with Adreno 305 graphics, 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM.

As such it's not much of a step forward from the existing Moto G, though the camera upgrade is at least an improvement to probably the Moto G's weakest feature.

If this is indeed legit we wouldn't be surprised if Motorola (read Lenovo) simply stuck with the existing Moto G name rather than calling it the Moto G2 or something similar. So long as the price is kept the same it'll remain an attractive package for a good while yet.
