February 26, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

We knew it would certainly be landing in our midst, but it was just a matter of when. But now Motorola has rolled out the answers.

The second-gen edition of Moto E has finally shown up with some broadly lifted features and as usual, for a sounding price tag.

Moto-E was one of its kind to be unveiled in a peculiar manner, which involved the package delivery to the press members that triggered at least some of the minds to get perplexed. But what came inside was been packed with some sheer power for its price range to pull them out from being bemused and rather induce some solid impressions.

With a qHD display resolution of 400×960, Motorola has got the hands under work for a bettered display, which now takes up a bit more space with the 4.5 inch screen. It’s also for the first time that we will able to enjoy the 4G technology in Moto E phones. There is also the 3G variant made available that comes with a slightly altered spec sheet.

The LTE version of Moto E will be packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64-bit SoC, with quad-core processors at speeds of 1.2 GHz. Graphics will be powered by the Adreno 306 GPU. Offering a RAM of 1GB, the device also has fairly improved the on-board storage space with a ROM of 8 GB.

The rear-cam is of 5MP and it now gets accompanied by a VGA front cam. The 2390 mAh battery is claimed to run the device throughout a single day.

The 3G variant packs similar specs, except for that it won’t be featuring the 64-bit upgradation. A 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 32-bit processor will be running the heart of Moto E 3G, and will be accompanied by the Adreno 302 GPU.

Running Android L OS, Moto E will also have a big uplift with the software department, as Motorola is inducing some of the Moto X- dedicated features to the budget smartphone.
