Ahead of the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, Motorola has taken the wraps off the new Moto E -- a budget mobile with 4G LTE data speeds, the latest Android Lollipop software and expandable storage.

It's on sale globally from today and will set you back £109 in the UK or $119 in the US. Australian availability isn't known at the time of writing.

The Moto E arrives with the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, Android 5.0 Lollipop.

The 4.5-inch screen has a 960x540-pixel resolution. It seems pretty bright too.

The back isn't removable, but a thin strip of plastic will clip off.

Underneath that strip is where you'll find the microSD card slot for expanding the internal storage.
