Motorola Moto G (2014) LTE model makes its way to Brazil
Towards the end of 2014, we reported that mention of the Motorola Moto G (2014) LTE surfaced on Motorola Brazil’s website. In addition to 4G connectivity, the new phone was set to bring a bigger 2390mAh battery, as opposed to the smaller 2070mAh battery we’ve seen in the past. The device has now officially launched, and can now be purchased on Motorola Brazil’s website. Since this version is a higher-end model, you’ll have to shell out a bit more for it. The new model is now being sold for R$ 899, which is roughly $335 USD.
Other than those two changes, the device still keeps the same 5-inch 720p display, 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, MicroSD expansion up to 32GB, an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera.

Motorola definitely made a smart decision to release a 4G variant of one of their most popular handsets. The original Moto G has already sold really well in Brazil thanks to its cheap price point. And with the addition of LTE capabilities and a bigger battery, we wouldn’t doubt it if this variant sold better than the first one.
This release comes soon after Motorola announced that the Moto G (1st and 2nd Gen.) in India would get the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, as well as the 2nd Generation Moto G in the US. If you live in Brazil and are thinking about picking up this new model, it will likely be running Lollipop out of the box. If you’re still on KitKat, however, you’ll need to head to Settings>About phone>System updates to update manually.
