Motorola has officially announced its successor to the Moto G, conveniently called the Moto G second generation. The 16GB version of the Moto G second generation will be available through Flipkart from midnight tonight for Rs. 12,999.

As far as the specifications go, the new Moto G has a 5-inch 720p IPS display with Corning Glass, up from the 4.5-inch of the previous version. The Moto G runs Android 4.4 KitKat and is scheduled to recieve the L update. The smartphone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor along with 1GB of RAM.

The Moto G second generation has an 8MP camera and 2MP front facing camera (the older Moto G featured a 1.2MP front facing camera). The smartphone is available in 16GB version. It also supports microSD for additional storage. For connectivity, the new Moto G supports dual-SIM, 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and microUSB. The new Moto G is powered by a 2070 mAh battery. The smartphone also has dual speakers.

Looking at the specifications, the Moto G second generation isn't drastic upgrade over the previous version. Though, the new smartphone offers improved camera capabilities and microSD expansion storage. But, retention of the 720p resolution on a 5-inch display may disappoint many.

It's worth pointing out here, Motorola has again banked upon the 'aggressive pricing' strategy – which is likely to further heat up the competition in the budget segment, which now has new players such as Xiaomi.
