The Moto G 4G can now be purchased directly from the Motorola website for only $219. The device is available in black and white colors and comes with 8GB of internal storage memory. While this is not a lot compared to other smartphones keep in mind that the Moto G 4G LTE (by its full name) is the first to include a microSD card slot. This allows for extended storage memory of up to 32GB. Aside from the card slot and LTE connectivity, the device is identical to its predecessor. Needless to say, it also looks exactly the same as the regular Moto G.
Spec-wise we’re looking at a 4.5-inch panel with 720 x 1280 resolution and 326 pixel density. Under the hood we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quad-core processor running at 1.2 GHz, Andreo 305 GPU, 1 GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage memory like we’ve mentioned already. The Moto G 4G comes equipped with a 5-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a secondary 1.3-megapixel secondary camera. The device also features a 2070 mAh battery and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, and microUSB 2.0 connectivity options. Last but not least, Motorola’s Moto G 4G comes right out of the box with the recently released Android 4.4.3 KitKat operating system.
The long awaited updated has started rolling out a couple of weeks ago for a number of devices. Nexus and Moto devices were the first in line to received it, but the update landed on a few other handsets as well. The latest reports indicate that Android 4.4.3 KitKat will arrive for the Samsung Galaxy S5 before the end of the month while the Galaxy S4 will only see it sometime during July. Rumors also suggest that the update will come for HTC, LG, Sony, and some of the other devices at some point in the future, but no one seems to know when. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we learn something new so stay tuned.
