Alongside this mornings launch of the all new Motorola Moto E, the company has released a refreshed version of its popular mid-grade Moto G smartphone. The update brings forth support for LTE as well as the addition of a microSD card slot that allows for the expansion of the phones storage. The original Moto G shipped with support for 21.1Mbps HSDPA even though the MSM8X26 chip was technically capable of supporting dual cell HSPA+) at 40+Mbps and category 4 LTE. This was due to a software issue, and now it appears that Motorola has its sorted out.
