Motorola announces new Moto E with 4G LTE

2015 Moto E LTE

The 2015 Moto E with LTE has just gone official. This comes after the smartphone was spotted on Best Buy’s site a couple of weeks ago, although it wasn’t available for purchase.

The smartphone features a 4.5 inch display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, there’s also a 5-megapixel camera on the back as well as a 2-megapixel camera on the front. The official press release mentions that the LTE model is running a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 410 chipset. The 3G version on the other hand is running the Snapdragon 200 SoC.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is running by default here, which is no surprise given that all of Motorola’s recent smartphones are running the latest version of Android. There’s a 2,390 mAh battery on board here, which according to Motorola will last a full day. The handset comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot.

Another interesting addition with the Moto E is the addition of Motorola optimized software features like Moto Display, which were previously limited to the likes of the Moto X. The handset will also come with a range of customization options in the form of Motorola Bands and grip shells.

The 3G variant of the 2015 Moto E will be priced at $119.99 and the Moto E LTE will cost $149.99. The smartphone will be available in over 50 countries across North America, Asia, Europe and Latin Americas starting today.
