Moto G 4G LTE hits Motorola’s online store, priced at $219


Right around a month after Motorola introduced us to an LTE-enabled version of the Moto G, that device has officially been put up for sale.

Motorola is now offering the Moto G 4G LTE on its website for $219 without a contract. The 4G-ified Moto G is available in black and white and comes with 8GB of built-in storage.

So what makes the Moto G 4G LTE different from its plain ol’ Moto G sibling? Well, there’s that “4G LTE” part of its name, as well as the inclusion of a microSD slot for expanding upon the 8GB of included storage.

The full Moto G 4G LTE’s spec list looks like this:

  • 4.5-inch 1280×720 display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor
  • 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter
  • 8GB internal storage
  • microSD slot with support for cards up to 32GB in size
  • 2070mAh battery
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900MHz
  • UMTS 850/900/1700/1900/2100MHz
  • 4G LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 17 (700/850/1700/1900MHz)

The original Moto G is one of the better deals in wireless, priced at $179 for a well-designed handset with a respectable display a mostly-vanilla and quickly-updated version of Android. For just $40 more, you can add a microSD slot and 4G LTE, which sounds like a pretty good trade if you ask me.

Now that it’s available for purchase, are any of you planning to order the Moto G 4G LTE?

    If only this was released from the beginning and with 16GB internal memory along with the 32GB expandable storage, I would be all over it. Instead I got the 16GB standard Moto G.

    This LTE should also be loaded with 4.4.3 since it has been released for the Moto G for over a week now.

    As the sd is now a second class citizen, I’d rather have the higher internal space.

    So if 4g isn’t a must for you, save your money and get the origanal. Now if it had the 16gb internal I’d get the new one, as it doesn’t I’d pass it up. Data usage off wifi isn’t high on my personal priorities.

    Do you know if the micro-sd implementation allows for keeping music offline with google play music? Or is it only for copying music onto from the PC?

  • scubabum

    Glad that the new Moto G has an SD card slot.

    You just can’t buy devices when they’re first released anymore

    Good deal but I love my Moto X though… And they didn’t offer this from the beginning
