Moto G to be mid-range device with Snapdragon S4 Pro processor

Specifications for a future mid-range smartphone from Motorola have allegedly leaked, suggesting that it may be less of a "budget" device than initially believed. The new Moto G rumors come at the same time as the release of the Motorola Camera app on Google Play, though it appears that it is only compatible with the Moto X.

An image from the @evleaks Twitter account shows what is claimed to be the Moto G, named earlier as the Moto DVX, in some sort of promotional material. It is said that the Moto G will have a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro clocked at 1.5GHz as a processor, a 4.7-inch 720p display, a rear 8-megapixel camera, choices of 8GB or 16GB of storage, and an LG-made 1,950mAh battery. It is also suggested that the Moto G will be priced cheaply enough to be free on contract.

The new Motorola Camera introduces a brightened camera viewfinder to the Moto X, as well as enabling "Quick Capture" for use with enterprise IT policies, and bug fixes. It is notable that the app is being passed directly to customers via Google Play, rather than the usual route for included app updates via a carrier. If more widely adopted by manufacturers, this could lead to more rapid software updates for users in the future, without the need to wait for carriers to give the all-clear beforehand.
