Motorola to Launch Moto G Ferrari and LTE Variants, Rumor Says

Last week we started to see the first leaks surrounding Motorola’s next budget smartphone, the Moto E, but it looks like the Lenovo-owned company may not be ready to leave the Moto G behind. A new report from Mexican site Xataka claims Motorola is preparing two new variants of its low-cost handset, an LTE-enabled model and a special edition Moto G Ferrari.

The Moto G LTE seems pretty self explanatory, offering the same specs as the original phone, though Motorola may only offer a 16GB version. The device will allegedly come with a Flip shell and cost around $265. Xataka’s source claims the upgraded smartphone will launch in June.

We know even less about the Moto G Ferrari, though this wouldn’t the first time Motorola partnered with the car-maker. The device could also offer LTE support, but we won’t know for sure until Motorola makes an official announcement. Xataka claims this phone won’t launch until the second half of 2014.

It looks like Motorola has a busy year ahead of it. The company is set to launch its first Android Wear smartwatch this summer along with rumors of a Moto X successor and now a Moto E as well. Even with all these new devices on the way, it’s good to see the Moto G is still getting plenty of attention.
