Verizon’s 2nd gen Moto E with LTE is now available through prepaid for $99


Moto E_2nd Gen_Lunch

Just as we’d heard from trusty insiders at Big Red, the 2nd gen Moto E — you know, the one with LTE — is now available for purchase. You can only get it through Verizon pre-paid for now, though considering its outright price is $99 we’re sure that isn’t a problem for budget-minded spenders.

The 2nd gen Moto E trumps the original in a few different ways. Most notable are the addition of a front-facing camera to go along with the 5-megapixel rear camera and a faster quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz. You’ll also get a bigger battery at 2,390mAh, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM and a 4.5 inch 960 x 540 display. It’ll ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop, to boot


Want one? Verizon’s online storefront has the goods, and unlike the Nexus 6 that was semi-launched today this one should be shipping out the same day you make your purchase.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

      1. Thanks for the information. I have Verizon for work and the phone is getting long in the tooth. I wanted a cheap replacement just for work. I guess i’ll have to look elsewhere.

        1. Check out swappa.com. I’ve seen the Droid Maxx for as low as $150 up there.

  2. I see band 4 LTE on the spec page. If this was unlocked does that mean it would work on T-mobile’s LTE band?
