Moto G 2 to have 5-inch display?

The Motorola Moto G 2 could have a 5-inch display according to a new leak.

New benchmarks for what claims to be the Moto G 2 have surfaced online, with the model number Motorola XT1063.

Although the specs listed indicate another mid-range device, it looks like the Moto G successor will have a much larger display.

According to the GFX benchmarks, the Moto G 2 has a 5-inch 1280 x 720p resolution display, which is larger than the 4.5-inch Moto G but with the same resolution.

Such a screen increase would see the image desnity drop from 326ppi to 293ppi though, which would mean picture quality would actually be a little worse off thanks to the screen size boost.

The leaked benchmarks go on to say it would run on a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. This would match the current internal CPU specs, which seems a little strange for the 2014 model.

There’s also the Adreno 305 GPU listed, as expected from the CPU.

From the looks of the benchmarks though, the Moto G 2 has been given a small camera hardware boost. The rear camera has jumped from 5-megapixels to 8-megapixels, while the front facing alternative is now 2-megapixels rather than the 1.3-megapixel snapper previously featured.

Apparently the Moto G 2 will come with 4.5GB of internal storage as a minimum, but there’s no mention of whether it will be a 4G or 3G only smartphone.

Previously leaked Moto G 2 photos show that the mid-range smartphone should come with dual front-facing speakers, but retain mostly the same design as its predecessor.
