Motorola has unveiled the second-generation Moto E smartphone, complete with 4G and Google's latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.
The 2015 Moto E is a follow up to the firm's 2014 model and comes with a number of software and hardware upgrades, the most interesting of which is the inclusion of a close to untouched version of Lollipop.
Android 5.0 Lollipop, as V3 noted in its full review, is the most advanced version of Google's OS to date and comes with a wealth of business and productivity updates.
Key additions include a more user-friendly Material design, reworked notifications system, default encryption setting, improved multiple user support and robust SELinux Enforcing mode.
The Moto E is one of a select few non-Nexus smartphones to come with Lollipop installed, and keeps up Motorola's strategy of keeping changes to the OS to a minimum.
The only notable additions include the Moto Display notifications service and Moto Migrate, which aims to make it easier to transfer files and settings from older phones when setting up the Moto E.
The Moto E will also feature some reasonable hardware considering its price. Key specifications include a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 4.5in qHD 540x960, 245ppi display, 5MP rear camera and VGA front camera.
The handset will have a 2390mAh battery that Motorola claims is "designed to last a full day's mixed use" and optional support for 4G LTE speed1 connectivity.
The 4G Moto E will be available in the UK from 26 February at motorola.co.uk, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco Retail, Tesco Mobile, Amazon, Argos and Virgin Mobile for £110. There is no word on the cost of the 3G version.
The price puts the Moto E in direct competition with the recently launched Honor Holly, which currently has a £75 promotional price tag.
Make sure to check back with V3 later for a full review of the Motorola Moto E.
