The latest leak includes the informative film that is shipped attached to the front screen of most phones.
This film revels that the newest Moto G could have a IPx7 water resistance rating enabling it to be submerged up to 1 meter in water.
This is nothing revolutionary as water resistance rating have been shipping on phones like Samsung Galaxy S Active models and Sony has various water resistant phones on the market, but this would be a nice addition to a mid-ranged device.
The Moto line of phones have always been unofficially water resistant, but this is the first official rating that any Moto phone has received.
The sticker also shows a 13MP back camera and a 5 MP front shooter. This Moto G is to ship with 4G LTE out of the box instead of releasing an updated LTE version later like we have seen with other Moto G models.
Lastly, we get a SD card slot for expanded storage, a quad-core processor (expected to be the Snapdragon 410) and a 2470 mAh battery.
Not bad specs for a mid-range phone. Hopefully Motorola will be able to keep the price tag low with the addition of the water resistance rating.
Other expected specs include:
- 5-inch 720p display
- 1.4 GHz quad core Cortex A53 CPU(Snapdragon 410)
- 1GB RAM and 8/16GB of internal storage
- 13MP rear-facing camera
- 5MP front-facing camera
- micro-SD card slot
- 2,470 mAh battery
Is the addition of the IPx7 rating enough to get you to get this third gen Moto G? Let us know in the comments below!
