The Motorola Moto E second generation smartphone has officially been launched in India, and the new version of one of last year’s most successful phones is all set to go on sale at midnight. It will be sold in the form of its 3G model exclusively through Flipkart at the same attractive price which its predecessor bore when it first arrived in the country, that’s Rs 6999. There’s no word on when the LTE variant will arrive though.

The second gen Motorola Moto E runs the Android 5.0 Lollipop OS; but that’s just one of its many highlights. It features a larger display than its predecessor, while there’s even a front VGA camera onboard this time around.
