Motorola yesterday sent out invites for a launch event in New Delhi on July 28, where it is expected to take the wraps off its third-generation smartphones. With less than two weeks to the launch, we have come across the first live photos of the third-generation Moto G and Moto X, courtesy of NoWhereElse.

The photos are in line with all the leaks we have come across before, but this is the first time we are seeing a working prototype. The Moto X (2015) photo shows a textured rear panel as well as a metal strip bearing the rear camera, LED flash, and the logo.

The Moto G (2015) photos too hint at a similar metal strip housing the rear camera, flash and logo. It too features a patterned back panel, which should provide ample grip. The photos also show the boot animation and the fact that it will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.

From what we have heard so far, the Moto X (2015) is expected to flaunt a 5.64-inch QHD display, and will be powered by a Snapdragon 808 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. It is also likely to feature a 16-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, USB Type C port, 3,280mAh battery and will run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
The Moto G (2015), on the other hand, isn’t likely to be a major upgrade over its predecessor. It is expected to feature a 5-inch display, Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage along with microSD card slot. It is also likely to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a slightly bigger 2,300mAh battery. One major differentiating factor however is that Motorola may add the new Moto G to its Moto Maker service alongside Moto X and Moto 360.
