Moto G (2015) launch plans leak out

Motorola is set to unveil the Moto G (2015) at an event on Tuesday, but the device isn’t really much of a mystery at this point. We’ve already seen plenty of photos of the new phone. Now its release date may have leaked too.

A internal memo from British carrier Three UK reveals Motorola’s plans to start selling the new Moto G on Wednesday, July 29, just a day after it’s officially unveiled. Once the release date arrives, you’ll be able to buy a black model in stores along with vouchers to design your own using Moto Maker online. 200 Sky stores will also be able help customers use Moto Maker via a special point-of-sales tablet.

We assume Motorola has similar plans for the U.S. and most other markets included in the initial release. That means you should be able to get your hands on the new Moto G this week, though you’ll likely want to wait a bit longer for your own customized design.

Based on recent leaks, the Moto G (2015) is expected to pack a 5-inch 1080p display, a 2700mAh battery, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage and a Snapdragon 610 processor. It should also cost under $200 unlocked, though the exact price is still a mystery for now.
