A few days ago, we saw a leak of a strange device that bears the logo of Motorola. While there were no real confirmation, all of the signs point at a Moto E successor, which was first introduced last May. Well, it seems like the device is real, as Bestbuy just updated its low-end smartphone with the new Moto E for Sprint Prepaid plans.
Now, the first thing that stands out is from the title: ” Motorola Moto E 4G.” As you remember, last year Moto E comes with 3G connectivity, and so it appears that Motorola has decided to upgrade the bandwidth. Other specification includes a 4.5-inch 540×960 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 SoC, 8GB of internal memory (expandable via a Micro SD slot) and 1GB of RAM. The phone also featured a 5MP rear-camera and a new addition of a front-facing shooter. All of this will be operated by Android Lollipop 5.0 and an unknown Lithium battery.
Another noteworthy detail is that while there are improvements, the price has decreased, at $99-instead of $119.99-with no contract (although it is a carrier price, the real cost might be different as Motorola starts to roll out its unlock version). Also, even know that this listing is just for Sprint, as of right now, this does not indicate a Sprint exclusivity of any kind, because there is no evidence to support such statement, so don’t be alarmed.
