Motorola's popular midrange smartphone is now available with 4G/LTE support, two SIM slots and a larger battery.

Both the first and the second generation of Motorola's Moto G were excellent mid-range smartphones with a heavy focus on durability, system responsiveness and connectivity, even available with two SIM slots. But while the first generation (2013) Moto G was available with LTE, the second one wasn't. This changed now with Motorola Brazil announcing an LTE-enabled Moto G2 dubbed "Moto G 4G".

There are only two changes to the hardware: the added support for LTE and a higher-capacity battery (2390 mAh instead of 2070 mAh). Also, two SIM slots and 16 GB of internal storage are now the only option, unlike with 3G-only Moto G2 which is also available with 8 GB and/or one SIM slot. Due to a larger battery, the phone's weight increased slightly (155 g. vs 149 g. of the 3G-only Moto G2) but the case's thickness remained the same with 11 mm. The device ships with Android 5.0.2 (Lollipop) - sadly, the 32-bit version, as the used SoC is still the same Snapdragon 400 without 64-bit support.

Currently, the new model is only available in Brazil, where it costs the equivalent of $335. Should it appear on other markets like its predecessor Moto G (2013) LTE, the price could be significantly lower, as Brazil is notorious for its high taxes leading to considerably increased prices on all electronics.
