Motorola debuted the Moto G LTE almost five months ago. Today, however, AT&T announced that it will begin selling the budget-friendly handset on Friday, October 10th for $180 outright. If you feel that over 200 bones after taxes is too much of an upfront cost, you can spread out your purchase by paying $7.50 or $9 a month through AT&T’s Next program, or buy the device for $80 with a one year service commitment.

Virtually unchanged from Motorola’s original low-priced smartphone, this updated version of the Moto G simply introduces the addition of high-speed LTE connectivity. Speaking of updates, Motorola Mobility recently announced a true successor to the Moto G, however like its predecessor, the device launched sans LTE.

As for AT&T’s latest offering, it ships with a 4.5-inch HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2,070mAh battery and a stock build of Android 4.4.
