Motorola have announced the LTE enabled G and the new, ultra low end Moto E.
The Moto G is by far our favourite flagship device here at MoDaCo and arguably the only really significant feature it was lacking was LTE. This deficiency has now been rectified with a new model that sits above the current G in the lineup, priced at £149.
At a shade over £100 on the street, the non-LTE Moto G is certainly not heavy on the wallet, but the new Moto E is set to be even kinder to your bank account, with a RRP of £89 (and a street price likely slightly lower). Packing decidedly entry level specs but continuing with the Moto X / Moto G design language, the E isn't a bad looking device and is set to take on competitor devices in a highly competitive space with such classics as the Samsung Galaxy Ace range. ;)
The E has a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage (with microSD expansion), a 4.3" 960 x 540 display with Gorilla Glass 3, a 1980mAh battery and a 5 megapixel camera. Like the Moto G, the E has a removable back (but not a removable battery). Too much compromise on specs for a relatively small drop in price compared to it's sibling? We'll let you know when we get our grubby paws on it!
