Motorola's next smartphone, presumably an improved version of the second-generation Moto G, is going to come with 4G LTE connectivity, according to Android Police. It seems that a slightly better Moto G is on its way to shake up things in the mid-end segment.
According to a listing on Motorola's Brazil website, the tech giant briefly listed a new variant of the second-generation Moto G smartphone, which features a bigger battery and 4G capabilities, in Brazil.
However, the company immediately removed the details from the site. Thus, it is safe to assume that Motorola is indeed planning to unveil a new version of the Moto G (2014) with 4G LTE and a bigger battery life.
The success of the Moto G (2014) has reportedly convinced the company to unveil 4G LTE variant of the handset. The Moto G is quite popular in emerging markets. Keeping that thing in mind, it does make sense to come with a slightly better hardware that supports 4G LTE connectivity.
Of late, there has been a surge in number of budget handsets that support LTE connectivity. Xiaomi has already launched the Redmi Note 4G at a price of Rs. 10,000. Similarly, Micromax recently launched the Yu Yureka with 4G LTE connectivity. With players like Lenovo and Huawei already planned to go ahead with affordable LTE smartphones; therefore, the Moto G 4G LTE shouldn't be seen as a big surprise.
The 4G variant sports a 2,390mAh battery, up from 2,070mAh on the 3G variant. Meanwhile, the specs appear to remain the same.
The current-generation Moto G (2014) comes with a 5-inch HD display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, 8MP rear-facing camera, a 2MP front-facing shooter, Android 5.0 Lollipop and a 2,070mAh battery life. The device is available at a price of Rs. 12,000 via Flipkart.
