Published onMarch 4, 2015


Following last week’s announcement, the Moto E (2nd Gen) is now available to purchase in the US through Motorola’s online store.

There are three choices when it comes to network options. There’s the new 4G LTE handset and 3G options for global or US carrier bands. Here’s a breakdown of the differences between three, so that you can double check bands with your carrier. GSM/GPRS/EDGE bands are identical on each handset.

4G LTE – US GSM (XT1527):
UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)
4G LTE (2, 4, 5, 7, 12, 17)

3G US GSM (XT1511):
UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)

3G Global GSM (XT1505):
UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)

As well as LTE capabilities, the second generation Moto E comes with a few other hardware changes too. The new Moto E moves up from a dual-core SoC to a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processing package, storage space has been increased from 4GB to 8GB and the screen is now also a little larger at 4.5-inches, rather than 4.3-inches. However, the display’s resolution remains the same at 960 x 540 (qHD).

The Moto E (2nd Gen) is available for $119.99 with 3G networking, while the 4G LTE variant costs $149.99. Both come in your choice of either a black or white case.
