Motorola showcased two impressively specc’d budget-priced handset challengers today, as it continues to back low-cost models in its bid to return to the smartphone-makers' top table.

Unveiled at a press event in London and priced at a wallet-friendly £89 when bought outright and off-contract, the Moto E is billed as ‘made to last and priced for all’.

Its spec sheet takes in a high-resolution 4.3-inch, 256ppi display fashioned from robust Gorilla Glass, a water-resistant splash guard and a long-lasting 1980mAh battery.

Powered by the latest 4.4 KitKat version of Android with a guaranteed update to whatever new OS Google is cooking up right now, the Moto E also packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with dual-core CPU, a five-megapixel camera, 16GB of memory and the option to boost this by up to 32GB by adding a microSD card.

And in keeping with Moto’s recent mania for customisation, there’s a choice of interchangeable backs, offering 20 colour and design combinations.

The handset was accompanied by a 4G capable new version of Motorola’s last big hit, the well received Moto G. This is priced £149, with a spec sheet that’s otherwise unchanged from the original.
