Recently we picked up on a rumor about Motorola launching a new smartphone this May. Apparently this device will arrive in three different models and will primarily be destined for emerging markets. Latest reports suggest that this smartphone might be called Moto E, and much like the existing Moto G, it may be slim, compact and competitively priced. It is actually expected to be thinner than the Moto G.
Though it might not differ that much from the existing mid-range smartphone as far as specifications are concerned. Rumor has it that Moto E is going to have a 720p 4.3-inch display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor coupled with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage with possibility of external expansion, a 1,900mAh battery as well as a 5 megapixel rear camera. Android 4.4 KitKat might come preinstalled, along with support for 2G/3G and digital TV.
Leaked specifications put the dimensions at 124.8 x 64.8 x 6.2 mm, it would be significantly thinner than Moto G, which comes in a 11.6 mm. The rumor comes in from Mexico where this smartphone is expected to sell for $230 off contract. It makes sense for Motorola to launch it in Latin America first. The company has already seen success in the market with Moto G’s help, particularly in Brazil and Mexico. No word as yet when Moto E is going to be released, and if it will make its way to the U.S. as well.
