Motorola‘s latest phone, the Moto G, made a splash when it was announced a couple of days ago. The affordable smartphone is out now in Brazil and parts of Europe now, and coming to North America in January. The Moto G has been confirmed for Verizon, but a new FCC filing shows a Moto G model that’s compatible with T-Mobile‘s network!
Two recent FCC filings show devices with nearly identical ID numbers. One supports the bandwidths already assumed for the Moto G. However, another filing shows a device that supports T-Mobile’s WCDMA bandwidths 850/1700/1900 as well. Of course, this doesn’t mean a Moto G model will be coming to T-Mobile necessarily, but it’s an intriguing prospect.
The bargain handset will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat pre-installed in the US. The Moto Gs that are releasing now in other regions ship with Android 4.3, with a 4.4 update expected down the line – as promised in the handset’s recent launch event. The Moto G’s specs are middling, but it’s $179 price tag means it could move a lot of units with folks in the market for budget technology.
