Motorola Moto G 4G LTE officially debuts


Alongside the ultra-affordable Moto E that was announced earlier this morning, Motorola confirmed plans to launch a 4G LTE-equipped version of the Moto G. It’s the same device we’ve always known and loved, except now you can hop onto the world’s fastest mobile data networks with it (which was the only sore spot for some folks in an otherwise impressive phone).

The 4G version will come with a bit more beefy price tag of $220, which is $40 more than the original currently goes for. If you need a quick refresher, the Moto G is packed with a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, a 5 megapixel camera w/ LED flash, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi N and 8GB of storage with micro SD card slot.

Dollar for dollar, this is most definitely one of the better values in mobile, though now that you’ll soon be able to grab an insanely powerful OnePlus One for as little as $300 it doesn’t seem as special. Still, that’s an $80 price difference, and if you don’t mind the less-than-exciting specs then this could be a good fit for you or someone you know. Head to Motorola’s site to pre-order yours now.

    But whose LTE radios does it have? Are they the “Universal” radios? And is that a buzz-word or are they truly universal?

  • Jay Kresge

    Just a heads up, there are a couple of things incorrect with this article. The Moto G has 8/16GB configurations, not the 16/32GB as listed in this post. Currently only the 8GB 4G model is available for ordering direct from Motorola. Also, the Moto G “4G” has had a MicroSD expansion slot added.

    Edit: I’m wondering if they will even add a 16GB option now that they have MicroSD.

      Shoot he’s right. Ah that’s a shame..

    If only you could use on a regular contract account.

        Grandfathered Unlimited Data, cheap phone.

        • Jerel Butler

          What carrier are you talking about? If Verizon just buy a used DROID DNA or something. It Should be cheaper

          • hemipw54

            Isn’t the DNA the one with SIM card problems?
            I’ll pass. Moto has better radios which I need where I live (bad reception area).

  • Lex Lybrand

    I just can’t do a bottom bezel that large while still having on screen buttons.

    • Aaron Peromsik

      So… which phone with similar performance but smaller bezels would you choose instead, and how much more will it cost you? Is it worth the difference just for that?

      • Lex Lybrand

        I simply just keep the phone I already have.

  • Jay Kresge

    Now that the article is mostly corrected, here’s the full Moto G lineup.

    HSPA+ 8GB = $179

    HSPA+ 16GB = $199

    LTE 8GB w/MicroSD = $219

    no word on a 16GB LTE model at this time

    The revised wording of; “If you need a quick refresher, the Moto G is packed with…and 8GB of storage with micro SD card slot,” is a bit misleading as it insinuates that the old model had MicroSD as well.

    So it’s either LTE OR 16GB. Gee thanks. I guess I’ll wait to hand me down my N5 to the family instead of getting this.
