The successor to the Motorola Moto G will be reportedly on sale as early as next month.

Commonly known as Moto G2, or the Moto G+1, the smartphone will start shipping to retailers on 10 September, according to GSMArena which quotes a retailer who claims to have received the information directly from a Motorola representative.

The first stock of the Moto G2, which has a 5in display and dual-SIM card option, will be available for some retailers at the end of this month. But it is unclear if the retailers will be allowed to sell the devices before 10 September.

The report further reveals the pricing for Moto G2, which is expected to be €250 (£199). This is about double the price of the original Moto G, which costs £120 (Note that the pricing is according to Clove UK) and £50 more than the 4G variant of the handset.

If this timeframe is true, then the Moto G2 could make its international debut at the IFA 2014 consumer electronics trade fair, being held in Berlin next month.

The Moto G2 is expected to feature a 720p display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core Cortex-A7 processing unit, paired with an Adreno 305 GPU. The handset is likely to have 1GB RAM, an 8 megapixel rear camera, and a 2 megapixel front camera, and will have Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) installed.
