Motorola Moto G LTE and Moto G Ferrari coming soon?
As its name suggests, the Moto G LTE will have LTE connectivity - a feature that’s missing from the original Moto G. While the latter is currently offered in both 8GB and 16GB variants, it’s said that the new Moto G LTE will have only a 16GB model. Reportedly, the LTE-capable Moto G should cost about $260 in Mexico, where it could be released starting June. Its retail packaging might include a Motorola flip shell (normally sold for $29.99). Besides LTE, it appears that the handset will be similar to the Moto G that's already available, so it should offer Android KitKat, a 4.5-inch 720p display, 1GB of RAM, and a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor.
Earlier this month, Motorola released a Moto G Forte in Mexico - but this is just an original Moto G that comes with a Grip Shell out of the box.
Another alleged new Motorola smartphone that should be introduced in Latin America soon is the Moto E (which seemingly has three versions: XT1021, XT1022 and XT1025).
At the moment, we don’t know if the Moto G LTE, Moto G Ferrari and Moto E will be available around the world. But we will let you know when we find out.

My thoughts exactly. I highly doubt a luxury car brand would like a low end phone attached to there name.

acer made ferrari edition smartphones with budget specs (1ghz) when others were running dual core , i think this looks legit enough,

Keep it simple, Motorola. One version of the Moto G is sufficient.

There's already several versions.
8gb dual sim
16gb dual sim
Plus all the carrier-specific CDMA versions.
An LTE version of this phone would be awesome. A $60 bump in price is a bit hefty, but even at $260, it's an amazing phone for the price.

That brings me to another point; why make a Google Play Edition when the original phone is already running almost exactly vanilla Android? It doesn't make any sense...

Because Google wants everything stock, and they wanted a (more) inexpensive option to their Nexus line and other GPE devices. Any changes, while minimal, that Motorola made to Android are still changes.

I'm personally looking forward to the Moto G2 more than the Moto X2

The Moto G LTE will be a welcome addition to the US market. Hopefully once Lenovo has taken over Moto, the company will be more aggressive about introducing dual SIM and some of the other Moto models into the US that usually don't make it here.

A G with LTE would make it a far better value than it already is! Granted, only on T-mobile, with its adroit HSPA+ network, is the G with 3G quite fast, so it's not as a terrific value for AT&T. I just hope that Moto continues making it available both the US and the global versions for purchase. Though I'm afraid that this only happened because with 4 out of 6 bands a device can be practically global, but not so with LTE, requiring at least 7 bands to aspire at being a global phone.

Having both a tmob phone and a aio phone, I can say, you'll have pretty much the same 4G networks available, except with aio/att, you'll get "H" or 4G when you leave the big city and are in the middle of nowhere, while tmob will give you 2G Edge.

What kind of speed does one get with HSPA+ on AT&T network? On T-mobile, I typically got 6M and even 10Mbps in another city. Was it because T-mobile worked very hard to get such speeds because it marketed HSPA+ as 4G or are they common also on AT&T?

An 8GB phone with 5GB of usable space should have NEVER come off the assembly line! But I understand this was the only way to get a modern handset on some of the prepaid providers (Verizon). Usable but they are hoping you will need to stream everything, buying more data along the way. I'm really glad it is the most successful phone ever for Motorola.

LTE connectivity will make this phone one of the best smarphone values out there.
