Motorola is one of the companies we can rely on to update its handsets to the latest Android builds in quick and efficient fashion, so it was hardly a surprise when the company detailed its update schedule in the wake of Android 6.0 Marshmallow's launch. However, until now Motorola has not said when second edition Moto E will receive the update, but the company has now confirmed it.This is the current model of Motorola's budget Moto E and the company revealed today that the handset is now inline to receive Marshmallow. At the moment Motorola has said that Latin America, Europe, Canadian, and most Asian markets will not get the update, while China will not. The company has not said if the U.S. variant of the Moto E will get the upgrade, but we assume that it will at some point. 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 micro SD 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."
