Moto E comes with 4.3-inch display with a qHD (540x960 pixel) resolution, and 256ppi pixel density. Motorola is also touting the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen of the phone, along with its 'water-nano coating' which provides a measure of water resistance.

Moto E is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor along with Adreno 302 GPU alongside 1GB of RAM. The Moto E is a dual-SIM phone that supports Micro-SIM cards and an 'intelligent calling feature.' It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat.
Notably, the Moto G 4G features a microSD card slot, with support for cards up to 32GB. This essentially removes the biggest qualm users had with purchasing the device - a wise decision that Google may want to emulate with the next Nexus smartphone, whenever it's launched.
