Successor to the Motorola Moto G2 Possibly Coming Out Soon

While Motorola has yet to come out with an official statement or an announcement that it is now working on the development of the successor of the Motorola Moto G2, it seems likely that the American tech company is really busy on it.

The Motorola Moto G2, officially known as the Moto G 2nd generation, has been released in September 2014. It came out 10 months after the Motorola Moto G 1st generation was released in November 2013.

Basing on the same Motorola production timetable and release pattern, then it is likely that a third generation of the Motorola Moto G would come out in July at the earliest. But again, since Motorola has yet to make any official advice about one of its upcoming smartphone offerings, these are just mere speculations at this time.

In March, Motorola has released an upgraded variant of its Moto G2 which featured a new capability of supporting 4G LTE connectivity, which greatly renewed consumer interests and enthusiasm on the handset.

As the new variant basically retained its key features and its affordable price, the upgraded Motorola Moto G2 certainly attracted more buyers, according to the Day Herald.

Improved camera and larger screen

The upgraded variant of the Motorola Moto G2 also comes with a much-improved camera and a larger screen that makes it a worthwhile update from its previous edition.

It’s not a groundbreaking update compared to its first edition and less comfortable to hold too but the fact that its bigger means that users get to have their money’s worth physically.

With a big screen comes a decent display quality and for its price, the Motorola Moto G2 surely has the superb value.

However, it also comes with a few downsides compared to the first Motorola Moto G 1st generation. In addition to lower sharpness and slightly disappointing battery life compared to the Motorola Moto G, the Motorola Moto G2 is a little chunky and also has an average sound quality.

But the downsides to the upgraded smartphone are more than offset by its new capability of supporting 4G LTE connectivity. The even better news is that it’s not as expensive as the current list of flagship mobile devices that offer the same kind and level of connectivity to its users.

A top-seller

The new Motorola Moto G 2nd gen retained most of the features of its earlier version and apart from the 4G and LTE capabilities, the other two major differences are that the current model is coming out of the box with Android 5.0 Lollipop on it with possibly free upgrade to Android 5.1 Lollipop, and of course its price.

Due to its premium features and very affordable price, the Motorola Moto G 2nd gen turned out to be the best-selling smartphone in Motorola’s history.

Motorola Moto G2 vs Motorola Moto E

When it was released in September last year, the Motorola smartphone became one of the most powerful mobile devices in the market and practically went at par with the flagship smartphones of Samsung and Sony.


  1. I keep receiving update to lollipop 5.0 on my moto G 2g but I want lollipop 5.1
    Do I have to upgrade to lollipop 5.0 before upgrading to 5.1 ?

    1. It’s coming soon, now there’s no good reason to avoid 5.02. It’s a great OS version without any downside.

      I’ve been using 5.01 since November, then 5.02 since it was released for G2 and have no regrets.

  2. Salim there is currently a lollipop 5.1 OTA update for the moto g 2nd Gen Google play edition only as far as I’m aware. All other models are either in soak test mode or waiting.
    No you shouldn’t have to go to 5.0 to go to 5.1. Stick with 4.4.4 it’s more stable. If you really want 5.1 you could try the guides to rooting and flashing your device from xda at your own risk.
