The real reason for the gearbox on the Moto G? It’s not there to power your phone

The Moto G uses dual motor gearboxes.

That’s not a secret anymore, as it’s been confirmed by Motorola and the Moto Maker community.

And in fact, you can now check out the Moto Gearbox 2 and 3 (both Moto G variants), which have dual motor gearsets for more efficient use of power.

The Moto Gearboxes are powered by the same motor as the Moto X and Moto G, and they have a 3,000mAh battery, though it’s not clear if that’s the same capacity as the current Moto G. We’ve also seen that the Moto 4 Plus, which has a similar battery, also has dual motor versions, but it’s unclear if either of these phones can run a Moto Gear 3.

Moto Maker, the app-based customization service that’s popular with tech nerds, has also confirmed the dual motor Moto Gear models.

We’re also not sure if the Moto E will be the first Android phone to get the dual-motors option.

In the future, we may see other phones with the dual motors, but for now, you should probably wait for the Moto Y to get it.
