2. Moto G 3rd Gen
This is the phone which may have been the record setter for most number of leaks and rumors. I haven’t found any phone to have so many rumors circling around. First, Moto G 3rd Gen was leaked via press renders. Then, Moto Maker Color and storage options were leaked on Motorola’s own website. And then, the big leak which actually made me wake up at the middle of the night, the promo video for Moto G 3rd Gen was leaked by a Brazillian Retailer. So, actually the video revealed almost everything, most of the details were leaked in the video.
According to the video, Moto G 3rd Gen has a 5-inch HD (likely 720p, but it may be full HD) display and will be powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410 processor. It will have 8GB or 16GB of storage on board and also a microSD slot for memory expansion upto 32GB. The Moto G 3rd Gen will have 4G LTE connectivity for sure. The phone will sport a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. Other features also include IPX7 waterproofing, and Moto G 3rd Gen will surely run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.So, I can just say one thing, ignore all the previous leaks and be sure that it is the latest information we have got till now. So, with so many leaks I guess it deserves to be on the 2nd position on our list of Top 5 smartphones launching this end of month.
3. Moto X 3rd Gen
Just a few days ago, we got a glimpse into what the Moto X could look like via a Google+ post. However, there have not been much buzz about this device in the smartphone industry, nor tech bloggers seemed to be that much interested like they are for Moto G 3rd Gen. However, the leak suggested that the Moto X 3rd Gen which will be unveiled Gen.
4. Android One 2nd Gen – Lava Pixel V1 smartphone:
Remember the Android One 1st gen smartphones which were launched by micromax, lava and spice ? I know you won’t be remembering them because of the low-end quality. Now Lava is trying to come up with 2nd Gen Android One smartphone reportedly be the Lava Pixel V1. Thanks to Mysmartpirce.com

5. Micromax New Smartphone:
Micromax cares most about its smartphones, that’s why none of the phones gets leaked and but only in rare cases. As per the report, Micromax is coming with an affordable smartphone which might feature a better RAM and high-end processor as the invite says ‘ A new level of multitasking’.
