Motorola unveiled the much hyped Moto G at a press event in Brazil. While the handset is available in Brazil and the UK. The handset is expected to hit the US early next year with Android 4.4 on board. The folks at Verizon also confirmed that the affordable Moto G will be available on the Big Red next year. Although we didn’t hear anything about its launch on T-Mobile.
Moto G doesn’t come with LTE or CDMA support now and works with GSM bands 850/900/1900/2100. This means that you’d only get Moto G support in areas with refarmed 1900MHz network. However, things might change as two filings are spotted on the FCC which suggest that a T-Mobile variant might hit the US market in the coming months with WCDMA frequencies.
There are two filings on the FCC: one lists the frequencies listed above while the other one supports WCDMA bandwidths 850/1700/1900, as well as the frequencies mentioned above. The models that appear in the filings starts with XT103 followed by 2,3,4,5 and 6. Although there’s no mention of the Moto G, but the UK version comes with a model number XT1032 that suggests we might be looking at a Moto G listing.
Well, this is just a FCC filing and doesn’t mean that we’ll see a T-Mobile compatible handset. But, let’s just keep our fingers crossed and hope T-Mobile will make an official announcement about the launch of Moto G.
