Moto G 4G listed for July 1 release by The Good Guys; priced at $298

moto_g_4g

Last week, we saw that The Good Guys listed Motorola‘s new Moto E handset for sale at $187, to be released on July 1. Tonight, we’ve seen them do it again with a listing for the new LTE-compatible model of the Moto G.

The price is $298 – a bit of a markup from the original Moto G, but that’s to be expected when moving into the LTE market. Unlike the Moto E listing(s), there’s only one Moto G and it appears to be black (just like the original, then).

The listing also includes the specifications of the device and a notice to say that it’s a preorder only, and that the device will be available in store on July 1 and will be available for delivery from that date. Head on over to their site and check it out.

To say we’re excited to get our hands on this phone is an understatement. We rather liked the original Moto G (mine is even on the desk in front of me as I type this) and can’t wait to see what the addition of LTE data and a Micro SD card slot can do for Motorola’s little beauty.

Are you looking forward to the Moto G 4G? Let us know in the comments!

Am I correct in saying this is single SIM only? The dual SIM capability of the original Moto G was the major drawcard for me.

Doesn’t say anything on the Specs page – just have to wait for the official announcement from Motorola.

Not sure about those frequencies. GoodGuys page claims : 4G (800/1800/2100/2600), which is bands 1,3,7,20. Only problem is 28 & 40 are of more use than 1 & 20 in Oz, particularly if you are in Canberra. Leaves you with just bands 3 & 7, though it will work here. Seems better tuned to the EU market, . I did hear word that there was a different version of the Moto G 4G due later in the year with more Oz-like frequencies – but as it is, it’s limited. Oh, and the price is significantly higher than is should be,… Read more »

Yeah, this is actually an European model in the end. They should make one for Australia as well!

Good price. Good alternative to the impatient Nexus fan?
