A next-gen variant of the Motorola Moto G 2014 has been made official and is up for purchase in Brazil. This smartphone supports 4G-LTE connectivity, and comes with a bigger battery and enhanced internal storage.

The USP of Motorola's Moto G (2014) 4G LTE smartphone is its LTE support and its approximate $345 (£229, 899 Brazilian real) price tag that seems justified considering the technical specifications of the device.
