Earlier this year, Motorola gave some high hopes for its Moto G lineup of smartphones, which are often among the best cheap Android phones, promising devices that will bring flagship chipsets like the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. The company is expected to launch the Moto G100 next week as a global version of the Motorola Edge S, but another model in the lineup could also get a launch soon with some flagship features, according to leaked details. XDA-Developers managed to retrieve information about an upcoming Moto G60 that has some impressive specs for a mid-range smartphone.
According to XDA-Developers, the upcoming Moto G60 will release as a midrange smartphone with a 6.78-inch Full HD+ display with an impressive 120Hz display. This would match the recently launch Samsung Galaxy A52 5G, although with an expected Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G chipset, so this phone likely won't support 5G. On the other hand, the device will reportedly sport Samsung's 108MP ISOCELL HM2 camera sensor, kicking up Motorola's midrange camera game along with an additional 16MP wide-angle and a 2MP sensor. Other specs include 4 or 6GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of storage, and a large 6,000mAh battery, making it a noticeable step up from recent devices like the Moto G Power (2021).
Apparently, the Moto G60 will come in a few variants, with other models downgrading to 64MP camera sensors on the back. The selfie camera also gets a downgrade to 16MP, compared to the 32MP selfie camera on the previous higher-end model. The G60 is expected to launch in a few regions like Europe in Latin America, although a release date is unknown. Given the device certification with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and the FCC, it could launch sooner rather than later.

The massive battery capacities we're seeing on mid range and budget Android phones needs to make their way to flagships as only the ROG Phones have massive batteries which are needed due to it being aimed at gamers.
AGREED! Obviously they can fit larger batteries in all these phones. So they need to do this for the flagships also WITH a headphone jack!!!!!
No 5G? Normally I would say no big deal, but for something that is not yet released, and with 5G finally getting around...they need to rethink this omission.
If and when Moto/Lenovo commit to long term support they will be become a much larger player. Until then the Galaxy A line and Pixel a lines are going to substantially hurt their sells. Plain and simple updates matter and 4 OS variants and 4 years security patching is now the standard to rise to.
Seems to me that Motorola wants to become irrelevant with their refusal to commit beyond 1 OS update and as you said, with the Galaxy A series on the rise, Motorola can expect their sales to continue to nosedive. Updates matter, especially security updates and the 4 years of security updates that Samsung announced is the new standard and even Google needs to step up, as well as Motorola.
At what price? Nicer Moto phones are usually way overpriced (like their One line), G/E line is cheap but weak and no updates. With the rise of Samsung A line Moto is going to be pretty irrelevant by 2022.
