Flipkart, the exclusive online retail partner of Motorola handsets in India, has listed the Moto G (Gen 3). It appears to be an early, placeholder listing of the handset as it does not include any images and even misses out on nearly all specifications. The only detail that the listing reveals is that the Moto G (Gen 3) will come in 8GB built-in storage option and will be available in White colour. At the time of writing, the Flipkart listing (see below) of the Moto G (Gen 3) was still live; though it may be pulled soon.
According to the Flipkart listing, the Moto G (Gen 3) will feature AP3560AD1K8 model number. In contrast, the Moto G (Gen 2)’s model number is XT1068 while the first generation Moto G came with XT1033 model number. The listing was first spotted by Gadgetraid.
Some preliminary specifications rumoured for the Moto G (Gen 3) include 64-bit 1.7GHz Snapdragon 610 processor; 2GB of RAM; 5 or 5.2-inch full-HD display, and 4G LTE support.
Motorola’ President, Rick Osterloh, in March had confirmed that the company is hoping to maintain an annual product cycle. This implied that Motorola can be expected to unveil the next-generation Moto X around September, which was when the Moto X (Gen 2) was launched last year. We can also expect the Moto G (Gen 3) to launch in the same period.
Earlier this month, Motorola announced limited period discount on the majority of devices including the Moto G (Gen 2), Moto X (Gen 2), and Moto 360 smartwatch.
Under the limited period offer the Rs. 12,999 (16GB) price tag on the Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) was reduced to Rs. 10,999. It’s worth noting that the Moto G (Gen 2) is still available at its reduced price tag. The Motorola Moto X (Gen 2) 16GB was available at Rs. 24,999, alongside the 32GB variant at Rs. 27,999. The Moto X (Gen 2) is now however available at its original launch price. The Moto 360 smartwatch, on the other hand, is also still available at its reduced Rs. 12,999 price.
