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.
