When Motorola announced the original Moto G, it’s safe to say the general consensus was that the Android handset offered a lot of bang for the buck. ‘Course, as we all know, this came at the cost of several key hardware specs we’ve since grown accustomed to, one of which was the inclusion of 4G LTE compatibility. The Moto G simply wasn’t having it.
Lately, we’ve heard murmurings around the webernets that Motorola could be upping their game, announcing an updated Moto G model with 4G LTE. Those rumors have now hit the ground running as the Motorola Moto G with “universal LTE” has appeared on Amazon.
It can be found by jumping onto the usual product listing for the Moto G on Amazon and clicking on “10 new from $_.” That link will take you to another page listing off all the available Moto G variants including this new “universal LTE” model, available in either black of white. Unfortunately, clicking on either model brings back a 404, but we think it’s only because the phones have appeared ahead of an official announcement.
Motorola currently has an event scheduled for tomorrow in London and where we were already expecting for the Motorola Moto E to become official, it’s entirely possible they’ll also announced this updated Moto G LTE. Still up in the air is if the inclusion of LTE will come with a higher premium (makes sense), or if the price of the non-LTE models will drop to accommodate the new model selling for $200. We’ll keep you posted.
