Second gen Motorola Moto G - 4G version goes on sale in Brazil

Personally , i find  the Motorola Moto G to be the best bang for buck smartphone right now , the phone series , which started out as a  Nokia 520 rival from Motorola became instant success story for the then Google owned company  ,although the first model came in small onboard storage sizes and no LTE , it was quickly adopted by many users who wanted a secondary phone , and based on those reviews , the phone started to gain traction among first time buyers as well , later on , Motorola announced a 4G version with a expandable memory card slot and LTE comparability . As months went by , Motorola anounced a second gen Moto G (2014) -this phone has a larger display , better cameras , front firing speakers from the Moto E and a splash resistance certification ,this followed the path of the first gen Moto G and therefore it too had only 3G ,but apparently ,Motorola has anounced  the long awaited 4G version of the phone in Brazil without any noise on the subject .

The second gen Moto G (4G) is basically a modified version of the GSM Moto G , the phone has the same 5" 720p display , the same Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM and the same 2mp and 8mp camera modules onboard , but the phone is now 6 grams heavier than the standard model thanks to a beefier 2390 mAh battery - which is a 300 mAh increase over the standard model, this however does not affect the phone's design layouts and you can use your standard GSM model accessories with this model as well. Storage on the phone consists of 16GB of local storage and MicroSD expansion slot which will take the storage level to another 32GB . The Brazilian model comes with Dual Sim capability and it costs BLR 899 ($345) , although the price looks too much for a Moto G , taxes and other duty may have played a part in that so we can expect the new 4G international model to cost somewhere in the range of $299 -$329 - not bad for a phone that comes with good specs , 4G and Android 5.0.2
