Photos of the 2nd-generation Moto E were leaked last month and we knew that the new model is arriving soon. A few weeks later, the second edition is ready for the budget-conscious market. The first version was not exactly a bestseller but Motorola is determined to make it big once again, at least, in the low-end smartphone arena. And why not, the new Moto E has potential because it already comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
They say that the new Moto E is simply a Moto G but with minor changes. It’s best for the prepaid market and the specs are good enough with basic smartphone functions. This one now comes with a front-facing camera, something that the first-gen Moto E lacked. It’s only VGA though to complement the 5 megapixel rear camera. Good enough.
The 2nd Gen Moto E 2015 comes equipped with a 4.5-inch TFT LCD screen with 540 x 960 pixel resolution, 1GB RAM, 8GB built-in storage, microSD card slot, 5MP camera, VGA front-facing camera, WiFi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, and HD voice. Phone runs a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (8210) processor which is similar what the first Moto E has.
Looking at the specs, they’re impressive for a budget smartphone. According to Motorola, this phone will come to carriers who weren’t able to receive the first Moto E. We’ll see if Motorola will be able to sell more Moto E this year. Available from Best Buy for only $99.99.
