After being acquired by Google, Motorola feels like a completely different smartphone brand. Its past few releases such as the Moto X and the Moto G have been very well received. The Moto X was a high-end smartphone with a twist, while the Moto G was solidly performing a mid-range smartphone with focus on the basics. Motorola is now reportedly working on the Moto E which will be priced at $230 (unlocked off-contract).
Motorola Moto E Leaked Specifications
According to the leaked image, the Moto E will be equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of ROM. A screen measuring 4.3 inches diagonally might feature an HD (1280 x 720 pixels) resolution, similarly to the Moto G. It will come with a 5MP primary rear-facing camera and a front-facing secondary camera as well. The battery is tipped to be a 1900 mAh one. Software wise, it will come with Android 4.4 KitKat, similar to all the Motorola smartphones that are on sale right now. Along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, connectivity also includes dual SIM card slots, a feature which has huge demand in countries like India and China.
Similar to the Moto G, this device could be heading to developing countries like China and other Indian sub-continent countries. The Motorola Moto G which was priced at ~$200 (INR 12, 499) in India turned out to be a huge hit due to its affordable price tag, inclusion of dual SIM card slots and getting the basics right. The device appears to be very slim at just 6.2mm which might also mean that it could be a more stylish version of the not-so-attractive Moto G. Not only Motorola, even Google is working on a cheaper variant of its Nexus smartphone powered by a MediaTek processor.
