Description

The Motorola 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."
