Leaked renders showcase upcoming budget Moto g GO phone
Motorola might be looking to breathe some new life into its “Go” line of phones. At least that’s what a leaked render hints at. The images, courtesy of an industry leakster, showcase what is clearly a budget phone with sort of a retro design.
Since the image is a controls layout tour of sorts, a few specs are listed right on it. We can see some thick bezels and a particularly wide chin from the front with what is described as a “multi-touch display”. Most likely an LCD. It has a teardrop notch that houses a 5MP selfie camera.
The control layout seems very familiar, too, with a volume rocker and power button on the right-hand side and a combo SIM and microSD card tray on the left. So expandable storage is confirmed, but it remains to be seen if the slot is dedicated or not. There is a fingerprint reader around back inside a classic Motorola logo dimple. Many people find that location particularly comfortable.
We can also clearly see that the alleged Moto g Go has a headphone jack and a USB Type-C port. More than likely just one mono speaker. In terms of cameras, the image confirms a 13MP primary snapper and a 2MP complementary one, which is either a depth sensor or a dedicated macro.
That about covers all of the available info so far. A fair assumption to also make would be that the Moto g Go will be running a version of Google’s lighter Android Go OS build. Looking at the calendar of upcoming events, Motorola has one scheduled for June 7, when it is supposed to launch the Moto G82 in India. Perhaps the new Moto g Go could make a low-key appearance alongside it? Here’s hoping.
