Motorola Moto G 4G gets LTE and microSD support for a little extra dough

Motorola’s most successful smartphone has just gotten a lot better with the Moto G 4G model going official. Along with LTE connectivity, the handset also tags along a microSD card slot for memory expansion, making it the perfect affordable smartphone.

The Moto G 4G is basically the same as the original model where design and specs are concerned. Android Central notes that the LTE enabled phone will continue to come in 8GB and 16GB options, but there’s no word on how much external memory the device will support. You can expect 32GB at the least. Earlier today, the smartphone was listed on Amazon, but was pulled down soon.
