The Moto G is one of the best phones that has ever been made available at a price point of lower than $200, mixing mid-range specs with a low-end price to offer amazing bang for buck. However, two things made it less great than it could have been – lack of LTE support, and a microSD slot for additional storage. Well, that’s no longer the case, as Motorola has announced a new Moto G variant that addresses those shortcomings.
The LTE and microSD slot-enabled Moto G was announced at Motorola’s London event today, and will go on sale for £149 in the UK and $219 in the US. It will only be available with 16GB storage, but otherwise sports the same specs as before – a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch 720p display, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel camera, a 2,070 mAh battery, and a near stock version of Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box. The phone also features a water-resistant nano-coating on the inside and outside, making it somewhat resistant to water splashes like the original Moto G.
