The LTE variant of the second generation Moto G by Motorola has been rolled out in the UK today, available in a number of major retailers nationwide. The handset was launched earlier this year as a 4G toting variant of the regular Moto G 2014 and it is coming to UK stores such as Carphone Warehouse, Tesco, Amazon, Argos, Sainsburys, Asda, and more.Aside from the addition of LTE, this variant of the second gen Moto G also gets a beefier 2390 mAh battery and a special nanocoating that makes the device splash proof (not waterproof). The Moto G LTE is also bringing with it Android 5.0 Lollipop right from the box, and it is near stock Android too considering Motorola's light touch on Google's OS. The price for the handset is the same as $235 (£160). Released in February, the Moto G LTE second generation is one of the best affordable smartphones available and comes with a 5-inch 720p screen with a 294ppi. Other specs include a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of on board storage that is expandable via micro SD, an 8 megapixel rear camera lens, and a 2 megapixel front facing shooter.
