Motorola has announced a new smartphone today, a sequel to the 2014 budget device, the Moto E. The second generation Moto E is another entry level attempt from the company and like the original handset, it comes with modest but appealing specs for its affordable price. Interestingly, the device is launching in both LTE and non-LTE forms.The new Moto E gets a quad-core Qualcomm processor, a Snapdragon 200 on the 3Gdevice and a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 on the LTE variant, both chips are clocked at 1.2GHz. 1GB of RAM is on board, as is a slightly larger 4.5-inch screen with 540 x 960 resolution. Elsewhere there is a 5 megapixel rear snapper with 720p video capture, a VGA front lens, 8GB of native storage, a microSD card slot, and a 2390 mAh juicer. The Moto E can be customized with what Motorola calls Grip Shells or Motorola Bands. These new products "feature a unique ridged pattern which provides an even better grip." The handset is available from today in more than 50 nations in Latin America, North America, Asia, and Europe. The standard 3G example costs $119.99, while the 4G variant comes in at $149.99; both are currently listed on Motorola?s US website and are available.
