Motorola Moto G successor will have a larger display, better camera

The Motorola Moto G has been a smashing hit so naturally, a sequel will be in the works and we’ve got a good deal of information on the smartphones. The device was spotted under the model number XT1063 at a benchmark website where most of its key specifications were divulged.

PhoneArena is reporting based on information provided by Webtrek.it that the Motorola XT1063 could go official as the Moto G+1 or the G2. Both monikers make a lot of sense, but we haven’t got the slightest information on what the Lenovo-owned company is planning.

According to data disclosed by GFX Bench, the handset will have a 5-inch display which is a pretty good upgrade from the 4.5-inch panel on the current phone. The screen resolution, however, will remain the same at 1280 x 720p HD and the larger panel will cause the pixel density to drop to around 329ppi. The rear camera will also see an upgrade to 8MP.

The front snapper is said to be a 2MP lens and some of the internal components have remained unchanged as well. The same 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 SOC will deliver the steam with 1GB of RAM and storage will be in the hands of 8GB flash memory. It’s uncertain whether Motorola will continue its current strategy or equip the new handsets with microSD memory expandability.

Here’s a roundup of the Motorola XT1063 specs:

– Android 4.4.4 KitKat
– 5-inch 1280 x 720p HD display
– 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 SOC
– 1GB RAM, 8GB storage
– 8MP rear camera, 2MP front snapper

We expect to see the Motorola XT1063 Moto G successor show up along with the Moto X+1 flagship by the end of summer.
