Motorola Moto G Refresh Appears On GFXBench, 5″ 720p And Snapdragon 400 In Tow

Motorola surprised everyone with the quality of its Moto G offering back in November last year when it launched the device for (at the time) only $179 off-contract/unlocked. Moto G was and I’d say still is a perfect budget device. The device is rather capable if we consider its price and is sporting a relatively solid hardware, if you’re not a specification junkie that is. With its 4.5″ 720p (1280 x 720) display, a Snapdragon 400 quad-core chip clocked at 1.2GHz and 1GB of RAM it is rather capable smratphone for a general consumer. Adreno 305 GPU and a 5MP rear-facing as well as a 1.2MP cameras are also a part of the package, not to mention the fact it always got a quick firmware upgrades, right after the Nexus devices. You can check out its full specifications here. Needless to say, this was/is a great (cheaper) alternative to the Moto X.

Both of these devices are in for a refresh and this time we have a Moto G leak for you. The device which we presume will be called either the Moto G 2 or Moto G+1, we’re only guessing of course. Either way, a model number that the device is expected to carry visited the GFX Bench, a benchmarking website, and gave us some information about the device itself. According to the GFX Benchmark the device will yet again sport a 720p screen but will increase in size, we’re talking about a 5″ 720p screen this time around. Snapdragon 400 and Adreno 305 will allegedly make yet another appearance here. Main camera is listed as 7MP one and a front-facing as a 2MP shooter, both of which would in this case be upgraded in comparison to the current-gen Moto G. 8GB of storage (4.5GB available) is also mentioned as well as 1GB of RAM.

This actually only shows the quality of the Snapdragon 400 chip and how the current Moto G is still a really capable device. If this rumor pans out in the end it will be a solid upgrade to the current-gen Moto G.
