Mystery Motorola benchmark could be Moto G3

A new Motorola device has turned up on GeekBench, touting middle-of-the-road specs that could signal a next-gen Moto G.

The device in question looks set to land with a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, clocking in at 1.2GHz.

By comparison, the current Moto G 2014 rocks a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 chip, Qualcomm’s slightly more aged processing tech.

The Geekbench results also reveal the device will carry 1GB of RAM and was tested while running Android 4.4.4 KitKat. It’s worth noting that this will probably change to Android 5.0 Lollipop come the official launch.

There’s little else to be gleaned from the benchmark sheet by this point, especially the as the device is coyly named ‘Motorola TBD’ – oh you tease.

The 2nd-gen Moto G launched back in September, offering up surprisingly solid specs and build quality for a hyper-budget price of £144.99.

It’s not unlikely that Motorola already has its sequel on the drawing board, and this benchmark could be the first whisper of its existence.

It’s also worth mentioning that this mystery device might not be a Moto G sequel at all. There’s a fair chance the new blower could be a revamp of the Moto E, another cheap-as-chips Motorola handset, previously rocking a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200.

The Moto E landed with a slightly lower price tag of £79.99, but it’s still potentially game for a Snapdragon 410 update.
