The Moto G is quite the attractive handset for someone looking for a capable phone that's also very budget friendly. In fact, our own Chris Velazco calls it the best budget smartphone available. Thanks to a video and a few snapshots, there's a look at the supposed third-gen model and a list of its specs. While 2014's Moto G was a rather modest improvement over the OG device, the details served up in this leak show more of the same for the 2015 installment. The device shown here is said to keep the 5-inch 720p display, 1GB RAM and 8GB of storage. However, it does pack a Snapdragon 401 processor with 13-megapixel rear-facing and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras. That's a 5-megapixel boost for the primary camera and a 3-megapixel increase for the one you'll be using for selfies.

The battery is also a bit bigger, as this handset claims to carry a 2,300mAh juice pack. The previous two models arrived in the fall, so if Motorola keeps up the annual releases, we should be due for one in a matter of months. That also means that in the weeks to come, we should get more info on whether or not the "prototype" we're seeing here is legit. For now, have a look at the video below.
