Now, more details about the alleged Moto E (seen above) successor have surfaced via a report by a Greek site (via GSMArena) that claims the handset can be expected to launch "soon enough."
Notably, the publication suggests that the rumoured Moto E (Gen 2) will pack the same innards as the first-generation Moto G, which means a Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz coupled with 1GB of RAM.
Some of the preliminary specifications of the Moto E (Gen 2) tipped by the report include a 4.5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) display; a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and LTE connectivity. Interestingly, the report also claims that the Moto E (Gen 2) will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box. The report, without revealing exact pricing, for the new Moto E suggests that it will carry "very low price."
For those unaware, the first-generation Moto E comes with a 4.3-inch display with a qHD (540x960 pixels) resolution with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection; 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor alongside 1GB of RAM, and sports a 5-megapixel rear camera.
Corroborating speculations of a possible successor to the Moto E is the fact that Motorola back in September launched refreshed versions of the Moto G and Moto X, and is unlikely to release another variant of the Moto G for some time.
We remind readers however, that nothing is official yet, and that all such leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.
Motorola back in May launched its dual-SIM budget smartphone Moto E in India carrying a price tag of Rs. 6,999. In less than 48 hours after the Moto E went on sale in India, Flipkart's entire stock was wiped out.
