The third-generation Moto G has been one of Motorola's poorest-kept secrets in recent memory, and things certainly aren't getting any better this weekend. A Brazilian retailer has inadvertently posted (and promptly pulled) unboxing photos that confirm nearly everything you'd care to know about Moto's latest budget smartphone. The pics show that the new G will pack a 1.4GHz quad-core processor (up from the current model's 1.2GHz chip), a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front shooter and colorful shells. It's also safe to say that at least some models will tout 5-inch 720p screens, 16GB of storage, dual SIM slots and (in Brazil's case) digital TV tuning.

There are still some unknowns, such as whether or not there will be significant differences between versions -- will you get more RAM and storage if you have a little extra cash on hand? Even so, it's reasonable to say that the G likely to show up at Motorola's July 28th event will be a welcome but incremental upgrade -- it's the next-gen Moto X that should be the star of the show.
