Sprint Prepaid Brands Get New Moto E

moto-e-2015

You might remember we published some rumors a few weeks ago that that the second generation Moto E, which includes LTE capability, was coming to Sprint prepaid brands including Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. Well, I’m happy to report that those rumors were totally true. The Moto E is available immediately from Boost Mobile and other brands as of today.

The Moto E is the low-end version of the Moto X and markets in the $100 range. This budget phone definitely holds up to the excellent standards of the popular Moto G and X and is an excellent buy. The new 2015 version will ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop, a front-facing camera (which the original version lacked) and, of course, has the LTE that the original version also did not support.

Here’s the specs you can expect from this device:

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core processor
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB storage
  • micro SD slot (up to 32 GB)
  • 3G/4G LTE
  • 5 MP back camera
  • Front camera (VGA)

While the phone has a pretty decent expected battery life, the battery itself is not removable. The device is available in white for $100 on Boost Mobile’s website, at Walmart for Virgin mobile, and will be available in black for Sprint Prepaid.
