Earlier this month, Best Buy accidentally (or not) published a listing online that outed an updated Moto E with LTE, more storage and a slightly bigger screen. The page disappeared tout de suite, but last week Motorola gave us a heads-up it was prepping some kind of announcement for today. You don't need to be a math whizz to put two and two together, and as anticipated, Motorola has now made the new and improved Moto E official. The second-generation model has 8GB of internal storage instead of 4GB, as well as an LTE radio (because bargain hunters deserve speedy 4G data access too) and new 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 CPU. It's also been given a fresh face, with a 4.5-inch display in place of the 4.3-inch screen found on the original. That screen is no prettier, however, as you're still afforded the same 960 x 540 (qHD) resolution. It also comes equipped with Lollipop, the latest version of Android. While the OG Moto E retailed for $120/£90, this new model is slightly pricier at $150/£109, with several retailers offering it from today. Motorola's US site tells us there's a 3G variant in the works, too, which should come in a little cheaper when it eventually appears.
