Moto E (2nd Gen)

This purported image of the Moto E successor shows that the handset will be slightly moving away from the design of the existing model.

On the whole, the Moto E (2nd Gen) adheres to the current design language of Motorola, but it features not two but only one front speaker.The other changes of the alleged entry level device include a secondary noise cancellation microphone and the addition of a front facer.

Notably, a recent UK retailer website listing suggested that the Moto E sequel will be coming with a 4.3-inch qHD display and incorporate a quad-core processor with support for 4G LTE connectivity. The other aspects of the device are likely to include a 5MP primary camera, 8GB of native storage space and Android 5.0 Lollipop platform.

Moto G (2014) 4G LTE

In the meantime, the rumored Moto G (2014) LTE variant has appeared on the Motorola Brazil website. This model comes with a 2,390 mAh battery that is relatively beefier than the 2,070 mAh battery in the 3G variant of the smartphone. According to the listing, the Moto G (2014) LTE is priced at BRL 899, which is approx. $355.

Otherwise, the LTE variant of the second generation Moto G is similarly specced as the one that was launched last year.
