Motorola launched Second generation Moto E in India. The 3G variants of this device will go on sale on march 11th with a price tag of around 7K while 4G version of this device will hit the market in next couple of months. There is no news about the price tag of the 4G variant. Moto E 3G is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor while Moto E 4G is powered
by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64bit chipset. Both of the phone’s features almost the same hardware. Front facing camera is introduced which was missing in Moto E First Gen for video calling and selfies. Moto E 2nd gen runs on latest Android lollipop v5.0. Autofocus feature is also introduced in the rear camera for better image quality however the camera is still a 5megapixel shooter. Phone supports Dual SIM. Talking about the specifications
NOTE- WE CANNOT ASSURE THAT ALL THE SPECIFICATIONS HERE ARE TRUE. THESE ARE BASED ON WHAT WE KNOW SO FAR.
CHIPSET AND GPU- The 3G model of Moto E 2nd gen is powered by 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chip with Aderno 302 GPU while the 4G variant of this phone is powered by 1.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 64bit chip with Aderno 306 GPU. You cannot play too heavy games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5 on 3G version however these games might be playable on 4G variant.

CAMERA- The rear camera is a 5 Megapixel shooter having a resolution of 2592х1944 pixels. Rear camera features includes Geo-tagging, HDR, Autofocus. Moto E now have a 0.3 mega pixel front camera for video calls and selfies (which was missing in 1st Gen). Camera can record videos of 720p@30fps. The 5 megapixel camera is a disappointment as most of the phones in this range features 8 Megapixel camera.
