The follow-up to Motorola’s Moto G will cost about $330 and be available in early September, according to a report from GSM Arena. 

Referencing information from an anonymous retailer, the website also details specs for the phone, which is referred to either as the G2 or G+1. The device will reportedly have a 5-inch, 720p display, Snapdragon 400 chipset with a quad-core 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU, and 1GB of RAM.  

It’s also slated to ship with Android 4.4.4 and at 8GB of storage. 

The current Moto G is offered in two models. A 4G LTE version has 8GB of storage with support for up to 32GB of microSD space. The non-LTE phone has 8GB and 16GB options. It is available from a variety of US carriers and as a Google Play Edition.

The upcoming phone will likely be under the control of Lenovo, which is in the process of purchasing Motorola Mobility from Google for $2.9 billion.

These rumors follow another leak about the flagship Moto X+1, which is also expected to launch this fall.
