Second-gen Moto E
The second iteration of Motorola's budget smartphone has a 4.5-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 4G LTE connectivity, and comes loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop.

While the first-gen Moto E is currently the cheapest smartphone from Motorola, being available for around $100 USD off-contract, it had a price of $129 USD at launch. Now the second generation hits the market at only $99.99 USD unlocked, as it has just been spotted on Best Buy. Although the original page has been taken down, it is obvious that Moto E 2015 will be available for purchase in a matter of days.

The new Moto E offers good value for budget conscious users, as you can see below:

  • Processor: 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 8 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 4.5-inch capacitive multitouch with 540X960 pixels
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 5 MP rear, without flash
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 n, Bluetooth 3.0, micro USB, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.0 Lollipop

The handset will be available only in black (probably, as this is the only color listed by the Best Buy page mentioned earlier) and the first carrier to get its name on it is Sprint. We will probably hear more about the new Moto E soon, so stay tuned.
