Back in 2014, Motorola introduced the 4G LTE version of the 2013-launched Moto G. Motorola then released the 2014 Moto G but unfortunately that phone did not come with 4G LTE connectivity, which we thought was a little odd. However a recent leak by an online retailer a couple of weeks ago suggested that a LTE version could be on its way, and sure enough it has arrived.
The 4G LTE version of the Moto G (2014) has made an appearance on Motorola Brazil’s website where customers are already able to purchase the handset. No word on when Motorola will be bringing that particular version stateside or to international markets, but we will be keeping our eyes peeled all the same.
The hardware specs of the 4G LTE model are more or less the same as the 2014 Moto G model. However there are some differences and one of them is how Motorola has decided to keep the dual SIM variant, giving it 4G LTE connectivity in the process. Motorola has also bumped its battery life to a slightly larger 2,390mAh battery which should help with the LTE battery drain.
However apart from that, the specs remain the same which includes a 5-inch 720p HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz chipset, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing camera, and the good news is that it will be shipped with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop preinstalled.
