The Moto G (3rd gen) is due to finally be made official at a special event tomorrow. That, however, doesn't mean we don't already know almost everything there is to know about it, thanks to a myriad of leaks and rumors we've seen over the past few weeks.
We've gotten the specs on several occasions (though certain things are still a mystery, for example how much RAM the base model will have), leaked renders, leaked hands-on images, as well as pricing information.
One thing that hasn't been talked about much is when exactly you'll be able to buy the Moto G (3rd gen). A leak from South America from a while back implied that it would go on sale on the day of its unveiling - namely, tomorrow. But that was it.
Now from the UK comes an image that's purported to be from the operator Three. It apparently contains a stock update communication sent by the operator to its employees.
As you can see, the Moto G is said to be launching on July 29, with stock of the device being sent to Three stores in advance of that, so there will be plenty of units to go around on the big day.
Keep in mind that this date could only apply to the UK. Other places may in fact get the Moto G a day earlier, while others still might wait for it some more.
This leaked image also tells us that Three will have Moto Maker vouchers for the new Moto G in stock on the same day. This means you'll get one of those vouchers from a Three store, then go online and configure your Moto G as you like it through Motorola's Moto Maker customization service, which will be available for a mid-range offering for the first time.
Furthermore, 200 Three shops will receive Moto Maker POS tablets, which are meant to demo the features of this service.
I work for tesco mobile and they told us that it can't be sold until after 5pm today. So we may get the stock today.
I think you completely underestimate the impact Lenovo has on any market they participate in...
normal human psychology if google still had motorola then this phone would have been a HUGE success like it predecessors but now lenovo owns motorola so it does not come in the same bracket anymore
