New Motorola Moto E announced: Android Lollipop and LTE for just $149
The "exciting" announcement that Motorola had prepared for today is all about a second-generation Moto E smartphone. That's right, Motorola just announced a new Moto E - an affordable Android 5.0 Lollipop handset that comes to replace last year's Moto E.

The new Moto E has both LTE, and non-LTE variants. The handset is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor (a Snapdragon 410 on the LTE version, and a Snapdragon 200 on the 3G-only version), and comes with a 4.5-inch, 540 x 960 pixels display - thus being slightly larger than the 2014 model.

Other features include a 5 MP rear camera with 720p video recording, VGA front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2390 mAh battery that's "designed to last all day."

While the basic Moto E comes in either black, or white, you can choose to customize the smartphone with colorful Grip Shells, or with Motorola Bands - these are patented bands that "feature a unique ridged pattern which provides an even better grip."

Motorola says that, "starting today", the second-generation Moto E is coming to more than 50 countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia. Prices for the handset start at only $119.99 (3G model) and $149.99 (LTE model). Motorola launched a brand new website to promote the second-gen Moto E (you can access it at the second source link below).

Update: The new Moto E with LTE can already be bought in the US, via Motorola's official website. The handset will also be launched by Verizon (sometime soon).

Here's a video showing Motorola President Rick Osterloh introducing the new Moto E:
