Motorola has dominated the budget handset market with their successful Moto G and Moto E models. The latter is popular, in particular, due to the decent specs it offers given its price range. This week, Motorola fans has one more thing to be excited about. The 2015 edition of the Moto E may finally be treated with a feature that was bitterly lacking in the original version–support for high-speed LTE networks.
There?s been a welter of speculations about the Moto E?s second-generation over the past month but Android Police probably has the leak to beat them all. The tech site posted a render of the new Moto E handset printed with the Verizon logo at the back along with the word ?4G LTE.? We still don?t know for sure when this model will arrive but we have a slight inkling that this will be part of Motorola?s ?exciting announcement? later today. Check out the actual leaked photo here.
Moto E LTE – Rumored specs
In case you missed the earlier rumors about the next generation Moto E, here are some of specs that the device will come furnished with aside from the 4G LTE. A Best Buy listing suggest that the new handset will feature a 4.5-inch display with 960?540 resolution. A 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset may be found under the hood. The processor?s specific model is still unknown but it will likely be the Snapdragon 200. It will also be equipped with 1GB of RAM and ?8GB of built-in storage.
Another earlier report suggests that the Moto E 2015 edition will also be available from Sprint. While the device?s price for Verizon subscribers is not divulged, 9to5Google predicts that it may be offered for $99 on Sprint prepaid. The original Moto E was unveiled back in May last year, so a successor is very much in the horizon.
