New Moto G with LTE and bigger battery pops up on Motorola’s website
Been waiting for the second-generation Moto G to get LTE connectivity before investing? According to a page that has popped up on Motorola’s Brazilian website this week, that wait may soon be over.
To accommodate the faster data speeds, the new Moto G is also going to get a significantly larger battery, if Motorola’s website is to be believed. While the existing second-generation model has a 2,070mAh cell, the newer model is to get a 2,390mAh cell. It will also be available with 16GB of storage only; there will be no 8GB option.
The rest of the handset’s internals will remain the same; it will have a 5-inch 720p display, dual SIM card slots, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, an 8-megapixel camera on its back, and a 2-megapixel camera on its front.
Because this information comes direct from Motorola — not a third-party retailer — we expect it to be reliable. What’s unclear at this point, however, is whether this particular device will be exclusive to Brazil, as some Motorola devices are. We don’t see any reason why the company wouldn’t want to launch a Moto G with LTE connectivity in other markets, though.
All we can do for now is await an official announcement from Motorola, but it certainly looks like a newer Moto G is close now.
