Motorola informed us at their little Q&A in Barcelona last month at Mobile World Congress that the Moto G had been their most successful phone launch ever. Which isn’t a real surprise since it was the first phone to launch on more than one carrier and in more than one country. Before 2013, Motorola typically launched a DROID on Verizon, an Atrix on AT&T and a Photon on Sprint. And with those being exclusive to those carriers in the US, it’s hard for them to be huge sellers. However the Moto G is available almost everywhere. And here in the US it’s compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T, along with their MVNOs, as well as Verizon prepaid, Sprint Prepaid and Boost Mobile. Not to mention it’s on the Google Play Store. So it’s pretty widely available. It’s also a great phone, that’s under $200.
It looks like Motorola is set to improve the Moto G already, as was leaked by @EvleaksES already. The Moto G Forte is headed to Latin America. “Forte” means strong, and according to Evleaks, it appears that there are some changes to the Moto G Forte compared to the Moto G. Which makes it even more durable, which is always great to see. It also appears that the bezel on the front is no longer glossy, but a matte finish, which looks really nice, but also a bit odd as the bezels have always been glossy on just about every device we’ve ever seen.
There’s not much else known about the Moto G Forte just yet, but we should be hearing more about it soon. I’m sure Moto G fans are pretty excited about this, as a stronger phone is always better, especially for those that are a bit clumsy. I could see Motorola selling both the Moto G and Moto G Forte side-by-side. Pricing the Moto G Forte just slightly higher. I think it would be a great choice from Motorola.
