It’s inevitable that manufacturers will release follow-up devices to its most popular smartphones. Motorola, now owned by Lenovo, is doing this with the entry-level Moto E. A rendering of the 2nd generation Moto E already popped up online at the end of January, but now Best Buy has all but confirmed its imminent launch.
According to the big box retailer, the LTE-enabled Moto E will look similar to the original and come with some improved specs, with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 4.5-inch 540 x 960 display, a 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, 5MP camera, and dimensions of 5.12 x 2.64 x 0.47-inches.
Best Buy lists the Moto E (2nd Gen) at $99 USD on prepaid, so if/when this launches in Canada you can expect it to be a few dollars more. The Moto E (2014) is currently available at several Canadian carriers between $150 to $180.
