The 4G LTE version of the new Motorola Moto E (second generation) is now officially available for purchase in the U.S., straight from the company's website.

The new Moto E made its official debut back in late February, set to hit commercial availability in 40 markets worldwide. After the 3G HSPA+ version of the smartphone went on sale in the U.S., the 4G LTE variant is now available for purchase as well.

The second-generation Moto E retains the affordability aspect of its predecessor, but comes with notable improvements such as a faster quad-core processor and 4G LTE connectivity. The handset comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box and borrows a number of high-end features from the flagship Moto X, albeit it does sacrifice a few specs in favor of affordability. For a budget smartphone, however, the Moto E does hold its own.

In terms of specs, the new Moto E features a 4.5-inch display with a low qHD resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage capacity, microSD support for additional memory of up to 32GB, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a meager VGA front shooter. The handset will provide up to 24 hours of battery life on a single charge, according to Motorola. As previously mentioned, the smartphone also has 4G LTE connectivity, which is a nice addition for a budget offering. On the software side, Motorola promised to keep the device up to date with future updates. The handset is also comes with a water-resistant coating that should make it more durable.

In other words, the new Moto E (second generation) may not pack the highest-end specs, but it should nonetheless deliver a more than decent performance for its category and price tag.

The new Moto E 3G US GSM model is now available for $119.99 from the company's website, while the 4G LTE version goes up to $149.99. These prices are for the unlocked handset without a contract.
