Yesterday, we reported about a price cut for the Moto E in India, and also questioned if the move was a hint that Motorola was preparing to launch the Moto E 2015.
And our guess was correct, as the Moto E 2nd Gen has appeared on Best Buy’s website.
The new Moto E sports a 4.5″ TFT qHD Display, which supports a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. It is powered by a Qualcomm Quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. It has 8 GB of internal storage, and comes with an expandable micro SD slot up to 32 GB. The phone will run Android Lollipop out of the box.
The rear camera is a 5 Megapixel lens, while the front snapper is a VGA camera. The Moto E 2nd Gen supports 3G, 4G and 4G LTE networks.

The phone is a variant for Sprint Mobile, and carries the model number MOT1526ASB. It has been priced at $99 (about 6100 Rupees) at Best Buy, without any contract. So, we can expect the unlocked variant (for other networks) to carry a similar price tag.
