Motorola has announced a pseudo-successor to last year’s Moto G, bringing 4G LTE connectivity to the budget handset.
That’s great news for fans of low-tier smartphones because the Moto G was already a formidable device even before the addition of 4G.
The most interesting aspect of all this is the price; the new Moto G with 4G will cost just £159.
The second Moto G currently retails at around £150, which means you’ll only need to spring an extra tenner for the 4G version.
“When we launched Moto G in 2013, we flipped the mobile industry on its head,” said Motorola.
“Today, we’re offering consumers even more choice with the addition of 4G LTE speed to Moto G.

Right, that’s all the news sorted, so here’s a little recap of the Moto G’s spec sheet, in case you’ve forgotten.
For starters, you’ll get Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, shipping with a built-in 4G modem.
There’s also 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot on board, as well as Android 5.0 Lollipop picking up the software front.
The display runs across 5-inches at a 720p resolution, while photography is handled by an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2-megapixel selfie shooter.
There’s also the added bonus of Corning Gorilla Glass protection for the screen, as well as water-resistant coating that ‘protects you rphone inside and out’.
The Moto G with 4G LTE goes on sale today at Motorola’s website sim-free, and will be available from March 16 at Tesco, Carphone Warehouse, Amazon, Argos, Sainsbury’s and Asda.
