A new version of Motorola Moto E, purportedly named as Moto E (2nd Gen), is said to be in the making. Technology focussed website, Android Police, has posted an image (see above) of the so called smartphone which has now gone viral over the web.
Here we would like to point out that Motorola has already brought successors of its Moto G and Moto X smartphones which are dubbed simply as Moto G (2nd Gen) and Moto X (2nd Gen).
Coming to the rumoured Moto E (2nd Gen) smartphone, Android Police has claimed that the handset may have a secondary noise-cancelling microphone on the rear cover even a front-facing camera (the current version doesn’t have a front camera). The website also speculates that the Moto E (2nd Gen) may be announced on the sidelines of Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona later in March this year.
Previously also there were reports about Moto E’s successor claiming it to have a 4.5 inch qHD display, 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and even LTE connectivity.
Considering that the current Moto E version has a low price tag, we can safely assume the new version to be available around the same price. Ofcourse, one can also safely assume it to have the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop version as most Motorola smartphone has the same Android OS now.
Currently, at Rs 6,999, the Lenovo A6000 is the cheapest 4G Android smartphone.
The current Moto E has a 4.3 inch qHD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 4 GB internal memory, 1 GB RAM, 32 GB micro SD card slot, 5 megapixel rear camera, 1980 mAh Li-Ion battery, but has no front camera.
