Motorola announces Moto G LTE variant with microSD card slot

May 13, 2014

Motorola Moto G aa 12

Minutes ago at a press event in London, Motorola announced the launch of an LTE-equipped version of its popular Moto G mid-ranger.

The Moto G was a great success for the Chicago-based manufacturer, capturing 17 percent of the UK prepaid market and ranking as the number one best seller in countries like Brazil or Mexico. Popular as it may be, the lack of LTE was a turnoff for some customers, so Motorola decided to fix the issue with a new version of the device that will launch in the following weeks around the world.

The Moto G 4G also features a microSD card slot, which was another feature that many users demanded. The slot allows the addition of up to 32GB of storage to the 8GB or 16GB of internal storage space.

The Moto G 4G will be available for £149 in the UK, while in the US the device will start from $219 unlocked. The LTE Moto G will be available from the end of May.

Stay tuned for more details.

    32GB of internal would have been great, still a decent phone for the price.

      I’d rather have 16 and availability of SD card slots thanks Lenovo!

      • wezi427

        Why not have 32GB and a SD slot? Too narrow minded.

        • Jonathan Sosa

          Yeah that’s a nice way to say it. Why pay for a 32gb variant? Save some money.

          • wezi427

            Yes, it’s cheaper. I like to have options. I’m with Verizon and I’m currently under the unlimited plan. For people like me that have to buy their phone off contract to keep the unlimited these are great phones. I just think that offering more options would go a long way.

          • Jonathan Sosa

            Well if your buying it like that then it’s different. And will this even work on Verizon. I know the moto g is sold by Verizon as well but just wondering

          • wezi427

            I hope they do. They sell the 3G version, but I believe it’s for their prepaid. I’ve always been a Motorola fan, they make a quality product. I currently have a Note 2. I’m waiting to see more companies follow the lead.

    No Snapdragon 410? :(

  • Cal Rankin

    This is great. That was really all they needed to add for now!

  • Nicholas
