Budget Moto G 4G with LTE and microSD slot announced

We all remember the Motorola Moto G that caught the eyes of consumers with its features, performance, and affordability. People liked it, only it lacked LTE connectivity and expandable memory which were deal-breakers for many. Fortunately, the newly-announced Moto G 4G now carries LTE and microSD slot for bigger storage. It also comes with an affordable price tag just like its previous model.


Not much has been changed in terms of its specifications. LTE support and memory expansion thru microSD are the two main upgrades, while a dual-SIM variant is still undisclosed as of now.

Motorola Moto G 4G specs:


4.5-inch IPS LCD 1280 x 720 pixels, 329ppi
Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core processor
Adreno 305 Graphics
8GB, 16GB internal memory (expandable via microSD up to 32GB)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.0
FM Radio tuner
5 megapixel camera with LED flash
1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
720p HD video
1.3MP front-facing camera
Android 4.4.2 KitKat
Li-Ion 2,070mAh battery

Pricing is said to be at £149 (around Php10,800) during its announcement over at London. Additionally, the Moto G now gets more affordable than its original price in case you want to check that out.

Although there’s still no specific release date, the Moto G 4G could possibly be rolling out before the month ends.

    been eyeing this phone. i hope they release an affordable dual sim variant soon. at please lang kung sino po ang may plano bumili ng cherry mobile dont, sirain po sya. personal experience ko po ito. bought a cm hyper and after 3 weeks naglabasan na po ang problema. sayang pera nyo….you have been warned.

      I agree. Have friends na nakacherry mobile at lagi silang pumipila sa SM North for customer repair once or twice a month. Given that Motorola’s parts are assembled and made in U.S. as they claim, mura na ang ino-offer nilang price para sa handsets nila. Yung flagship phone na lang nila ang iniintay kong dumating sa atin.

      I own a Cherry Mobile Titan and Omega HD. Both are over a year old and has never been brought to a service center. If you’re a smart buyer and thoroughly test the unit to the point of nitpicking before you buy it, you’ll rarely have problems with it.

  17. kurasmag says:

    Universal po ba LTE nya? I mean hindi ba magkakaproblema sa pinas? Sayang naman if katulad lang ng Ace 3. Di magamit yung 4G sa smart. Sana 2100 yung band kahit wala ng 1800. Haha.
