Just like the Moto G and its LTE variant, the 4G model of the Moto G (Gen 2) has been listed ahead of an official announcement by the company. This time however, the Moto G (Gen 2) LTE has been listed on Motorola's site in Brazil.
The LTE (Band 7) variant of the Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) is listed on the firm's site to weigh slightly more than the 3G version at 155 grams, feature a bigger 2390mAh battery, and come only in a 16GB model (though with expandability via microSD card).
The Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) LTE is listed in a dual-SIM variant, with slots for Micro-SIM cards. The rest of the specifications of the smartphone are the same - a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixel) IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 (MSM8226) processor, 1GB of RAM, Adreno 305 GPU. It runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box.
The Moto G (Gen 2) LTE features an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. It also sports dual-front speakers, above and below the display, apart from 2 mics. 4G LTE aside, the smartphone also features 3G, Wi-Fi 80211.ac, Bluetooth 4.0LE, Micro-USB, 3.5mm audio jack connectivity options. It measures 141.5x70.7x10.99mm.
The 3G variant of the Moto G (Gen 2) had its global launch in India back in September, and it was priced at Rs. 12,999. Notably, the Moto G (Gen 2) has not yet been listed for purchase by the company on the Brazil site, with the DTV (Digital TV) variant listed at BRL 799 (roughly Rs. 18,900), and the regular 3G variant listed at BRL 729 (roughly Rs. 17,200). It is not yet known if an LTE model will arrive in a similar configuration for global markets.
