Motorola's Moto E is nearing a year old, which of course in the smartphone world means it is due to be refreshed. The affordable but well spec'd handset is still doing well in the entry level market, but Motorola has been known to be working on a replacement for some time. Android Police has now uncovered two renders of the Moto E 2, and it looks as though the company has not strayed too far away from the original.
The current Moto E comes with a 4.3-inch screen, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 with 1GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel rear camera, 4GB of on board storage, and a micro SD card slot to expand the storage space. The device is a well spec'd machine for the very bottom of the smartphone market and it is a compelling choice for the budget restricted. There is no surprise to see that Motorola will up the ante across the board for the newer Moto E, giving the entry level consumer and even more enticing prospect. The handset will reportedly come with a bigger 4.5-inch screen, although it will retain the same 540 x 960 resolution. Elsewhere they will be a Snapdragon 400 with 1GB of RAM, a 5 megapixel rear snapper, a front facer this time, and interestingly LTE. That would make it very similar to the original Moto G in terms of hardware.
