Motorola has quietly rolled out a new Moto Hint earpiece with improved battery life and a cheaper price tag, which makes the new model $5 cheaper than its predecessor. The device appeared at Best Buy over the weekend, but Motorola is yet to confirm availability.

The Moto Hint is a Bluetooth earpiece so tiny that it won’t make you look like a dork, and with its latest refresh, it gets even better. In addition to an improved design that fits more comfortably in your ear and delivers greater sound, it boasts a new wind-canceling microphone that’ll make calls clearer.

The new Moto Hint also offers up to 17 hours of battery life in between charges — a significant improvement over the 10 hours offered by its predecessor — and Bluetooth 3.0+EDR connectivity.

It appears, however, that the device is only available from Best Buy right now. It’s unclear whether the retailer launched the new Moto Hint early, but Motorola is yet to make it official, and many continue to offer its predecessor with a more expensive price tag.

If you’re thinking about picking up a Moto Hint anytime soon, then, you’ll want to get it from Best Buy. You’ll also want to ensure it carries the “89800N” model number and “7495021” SKU, and costs no more than $129.99.
