Recently, Motorola announced a new version of their popular Moto G budget smartphone. Motorola has dubbed it ‘New Moto 4G with LTE’. Take a look at everything you need to know regarding its price, features, and specs and release date. The firm, which is now owned by Lenovo, has a series of smartphones, all having the same name. You need to know the different generations before you start moving into finer details.
The first Motorola Moto G was announced in 2013, and it didn’t include a 4G LTE support or a microSD card slot. However, the firm was quick enough to reveal a new generation of this model, dubbed as the Motorola Moto G2, with newer upgrades but the same name. Last year, Motorola arrived with a newer generation Moto G, with a better camera and a bigger screen but no 4G support. Presently, we have another model of Motorola Moto G2, with the same earlier features but an added 4G LTE support.
Presently, Motorola confirmed that the new model is available for purchase from its web store. You can grab it for 159 pounds, which is simply 10 pounds more than the 3G model. The firm also declared that from 16th March, the device will be released via retailers like Tesco, Amazon, Carphone Warehouse, Argos, Sainsbury’s and Asda. Earlier, Motorola updated the Moto G to Moto G 4G. The newly released 2015 model has no difference other than 4G enabled for people with 4G tariff. As a result, Motorola Moto G2 still has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 5in 720p screen, 8 MP camera and 1GB of RAM.
However, the newer model comes with a bigger battery of 2390mAh and a water-resistant coating in order to protect it from rain and splashes. As expected, it rolls out with the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. Meanwhile, the Moto G 4G can be highly customized with interchangeable back covers that are known as Motorola Shells. It has been confirmed that this device is sold with single-SIM functionality in the UK with just 8GB for internal storage. It can be further expanded to 32GB using a microSD card. The model number is given as XT1072. Let us take a look at its features.
