Motorola's third-gen Moto G could be launched as early as this month, according to a new report.

According to the Portuguese technology portal Tecmundo (translated), the mid-range phone will be launched in Brazil on 28 July. The smartphone will go on sale the same day.

Tecmundo's report comes after multiple images believed to be of the third-gen Moto G surfaced recently.

Last month, Indian e-commerce site Flipkart briefly listed the smartphone revealing a 8GB model. However, it later pulled down the listing.

Separately, a GSMArena report said the new Moto G will incorporate Motorola's Moto Maker customisation service.

The phone is also said to have gained the IPx7 certification, suggesting water-proofing capabilities.

The 8GB variant of Motorola's next-gen Moto G is expected to have a price tag of Brazilian $899 ($285, £182).

Motorola's current Moto G is priced at $145 in the US and £100 in the UK.

Apart from launch-related details, here are some technical specifications of the third-gen Moto G that have surfaced so far:
