Moto G 3rd Gen may be imminent after brief sighting on retailer’s site

Motorola’s latest iteration of its popular budget-but-awesome Moto G smartphone may soon be in the offing.

Following recent spec rumours, the device has made a brief appearance on the website of third-party device retailer Flipkart (via Gadget Raid).

While there was no photo of the device or any confirmed details about specs, the listing did mention a white colour scheme an 8GB storage option.

The Moto G (3rd Gen) listing was pulled from the retailer's site not long after word got out, suggesting it put up by accident.

Motorola has been tight lipped about the forthcoming refresh, but recent speculation has pointed towards 4G LTE connectivity, a 5- or 5.2-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM and a 1.7GHz Snapdragon 610 processor.

Although today’s update does little to confirm those rumours, it does suggest that it won’t be long until Motorola makes an announcement.

The Moto G range, along with its more affordable sibling, the Moto E, are largely responsible for pioneering a range of affordable handsets with specs and performance defying their bargain-basement price points.

If this latest iteration is rocking a 1080p display, as rumours have suggested, then Moto will have raised the bar even further.

Let’s hope the attractive pricing doesn’t suffer too much as a result.

Long time, satisfied user of the 'G' . What I like is the balance of this phone. Build,spec, performance and price all fit my idea of a good value product. Just hope Moto keeps these in mind and I'll go again with them. :)

If true, then those are good specs, especially if any price increase is kept small. A full HD screen would be a big plus.

Even though it's early days, these specs would be pretty awesome as long as the price increase for the Moto G is kept to a minimal level. Because otherwise, it'll be edging dangerously close to the £250 price range that the older but very powerful OnePlus One, LG G3 and Oppo 7A are sitting in. Though I really doubt it'll cost anywhere near £200 anyway, so Motorola should get a good easy hat-trick of good budget phones with the Moto G 3rd Gen.
