Second-gen Motorola Moto E’s 3G variant goes on sale in the US now

One of the most talked about smartphones currently may be the second-gen Motorola Moto E’s 4G LTE model, but its 3G variant has been grabbing some limelight as well. It is now available for purchase in the US, with its cost set at just $119.99.

At this price, you are getting an Android 5.0 Lollipop-running device bearing Corning Gorilla Glass protection, a water-resistant coating and some nifty software features that were only part of the Moto X till now. The 3G model of the new and improved Motorola Moto E grabs a less powerful processor than the 4G LTE version, but the latter isn’t too expensive either, at $149.99.
