This could be Motorola's second generation Moto E

This could be Motorola's second generation Moto E
Last year's Motorola Moto E was a fresh addition to the vast selection of affordable Android handsets on the market, and we're expecting Motorola to have a successor to it sometime in the near future. In fact, this successor may have already been pictured. Android Police published two renders that seemingly show the next-gen Motorola Moto E: a smartphone sporting what appears to be a relatively small display, and a rear camera with no flash (just like the camera of the original Moto E).

It looks like the alleged second-gen Moto E runs Android 5.0 Lollipop - which is to be expected from any new Motorola smartphone this year. Another noticeable novelty is a front-facing camera (something that the first Moto E does not have).

Last month, we heard that the new Moto E would sport a 4.5-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels. However, we also heard about a certain Moto E Styx, which would keep the same 4.3-inch display of the original model, adding only LTE to its list of features. Hopefully, Motorola will soon announce the new handset to put an end to rumors and speculations. Until then: what do you think about the design of this alleged upcoming Moto E?

Looks exactly like the Galaxy Nexus from the front. I hope Moto decides to increase the specs to at least a Snapdragon 400 or 600 on this one. There are just too many phones coming out of China with these specs for the same price. Thing's have changed a lot since the Moto E first came out.

That would be awesome, but what then about the Moto G? If the new E came out with a 400, then the only advantage to buying the G would be a flash on the back and a bigger screen. Also, doesn't that look like a flash ring on the back, just like the X and Nexus 6?

How about Moto E (2015) - 410 Moto G (2015) - 615 Moto X (2015) - 810 But more likely Moto E (2015) - 210 Moto G (2015) - 410 Moto X (2015) - 810

The "ring" isn't really a ring at all (I own a Nexus 6). There are actually two distinct POINT-source LEDs on opposing sides of the lens. The ring is all about style.

A 600? This is a low-end device. That's just completely unrealistic. Also, the 600 has been discontinued for years. It would have to be something else in 600 series.

Where the hell is the speaker?

The earpiece probably doubles as a speaker like on the other Moto phones

Isn't a flash the ring around the camera?

Can you get lower priced phones with better specs, but this is still a great phone
