Motorola's Brazilian site reveals LTE powered second generation Motorola Moto G

Motorola's Brazilian site reveals LTE powered second generation Motorola Moto G
A new version of the second generation Motorola Moto G has appeared on Motorola's Brazilian website. This version of the second generation Moto G features LTE support and a larger 2390mAh capacity battery (as opposed to the 2070mAh cell on the 3G version of the second edition). The LTE model also features 16GB of native storage as opposed to the 8GB available on the 3G powered second edition Moto G. That means that once the LTE version of the second generation model hits the U.S., we will probably see the native storage double to 16GB on that model as well.

The display appears to be the same on the 3G and LTE versions of the second edition Moto G, which means the new model still features that 5-inch IPS glass and 720 x 1280 resolution. The new LTE model also keeps the quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 CPU under the hood, along with 1GB of RAM, and back and front-facing cameras of 8MP and 2MP, respectively. 

One place where you know there will be a difference between the 3G and LTE versions of the second generation Moto G, will be on the price tags. But since the Brazilian Motorola site is not yet accepting orders for the LTE enabled model, pricing remains a mystery for now.

Still pretty decent, TBH... I think the late 2015 version will be a drastic leap in specs but I hope they keep the 720p screen just make it better, brighter and even more color accurate. 3rd gen will need at the minimum a 2500 mAh batter... Hopefully the S6xx series is put in it but the S6xx series has been getting reports of terrible overheating so IDEK...

Agreed. Stick w/ 720p and yes 2500mAh topped off by Snapdragon 410 or 610 perhaps? Kinda weird now when you really think about it that no OEM so far has been receptive to that quadcore implementation.Either way if Moto can get these done I can honestly say a huge FU to all flagships incoming.

It's because Qualcolmm still supports the 400 series and the 410 only has a 30% in performance over the 400 considering the pricing. The 610 though, IDK....should be feasible but knowing Qualcolmm, it's pricey.

This is actually a bit annoying how Motorola does this, For those of us who havent had the current one that long. Just come out with the ONE at once! Luckily I really don't miss having the LTE, As HSPA+ gets the job done. But I bet when it comes out my mind is gonna be like ugh now I want this one! Lol.

I'm actually not mad lol I don't use in the Moto G in the US and in the Caribbean LTE is barely anywhere.

Ya I really don't care all that much either. More of a mental thing I guess. See my comment below. The 3G or "faux" 4G HSPA+ works just fine in the USA as well if you haven't tried it out..

I decided to not wait for the moto g lte this time around because I bought last year's lte version and where I was on vacation didn't even support lte. The 2014 moto g 3g is great. So I bought 2 phones for 350 I'm happy lol

Should've done this from launch. Bet they release the X (2014) with SD card or something silly like that
