Motorola suffered a cold spell in the smartphone industry before finally pairing up with Google to officially become a Google company. It wasn’t long until Google sold the same rights over to Lenovo. During that span we’ve seen heaps of amazing smartphones come to life including the first generation Motorola Moto X, the middle brother Moto G and the young brother Moto E. They are all great devices but decline in specs in the same order. Then during 2014 the Moto guys brought out the second-generation Moto X 2014 and the Moto G 2014 but they held off from releasing a Moto E 2014.
Now that we are heading into the second month of 2015, it appears as though the “Hello Moto” company have had a change of heart and will release a new Moto E device. Whether it’s coming before the other two devices as part of the third-generation or named the 2nd-gen is still yet to come out. However, since it’s the second smartphone under the “E’ name, we are calling it the second coming.
According to reports, the picture in this post above is exactly what people will find when pre-ordering this new device. Furthermore, we have some specs leaked which we can tell you about. We know it is coming with a batter rear-facing camera, likely a better front facing camera with higher megapixels, a CPU upgrade and possibly a larger screen. If the rumors prove true, it could be one of the best value pieces for money on the market in the Western world, and other parts of the world too.
The first-gen Moto E came with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box which was brand new back then. That was one of the main selling points. Moreover, not only did it arrive with the latest software, but Google would continue to deliver the software updates in a timely fashion. The picture shows us that the next-gen variant comes with Android Lollipop. We are up to 5.0.2 these days on some devices and that’s mainly for bug fixes. It shouldn’t matter too much whether it’s arriving with Android 5.0. Lollipop, 5.0.1 or 5.0.2 Lollipop as the features are mainly the same. The only issue is the bugs which some people are suffering from immensely. Others are left with devices working perfectly fine. There’s some debate on whether the way people are installing the firmware files which could be leading to software bugs.
