Motorola (now a part of Lenovo) officially announced the Moto E3 for this year back on July 14th, and while there were a few press images of the phone that showed up alongside the announcement, as well as most of the specifications, there were still a few bits and pieces that hadn’t been revealed such as the amount of internal storage and the amount of RAM. This afternoon some new press render images have leaked out which show the phone from a few different angles, but aren’t much different from the pictures that were revealed during the announcement a couple of weeks ago.
In addition to these new press images today, there are a few more known specs details for the device, and according to the leak, the Moto E3 will come with 8GB of internal storage as was suspected during the announcement. Unfortunately there was no mention in today’s leak about the amount of RAM the phone comes with built-in. It was also revealed today that the Moto E3 will come with expandable storage support via the microSD card for up to 32GB of additional storage space if the integrated 8GB is not quite enough to handle the user’s needs.
During the announcement, the Moto E3 was listed as having a quad-core processor inside, but at the time there were no details about just what kind of processor was going to be used inside of the phone. Since the Moto E3 is a device aimed at the low-end device market, it was likely that the phone would come powered by a CPU that was aiming for the same market of handset. According to today’s leak, the processor inside of the Moto E3 is a MediaTek processor that is clocked at 1.0GHz, although it is still not known which exact processor that is. The Moto E3 will also come with the Splash Guard nanocoating to keep it protected from spills and such, although this does not make it waterproof. Just as before, the Moto E3 is launching first in the UK at a price of £99, although the earlier suspected date of September is now believed to be August instead. There has been no information on a U.S. launch for the Moto E3 just yet, but it was just recently spotted passing through the FCC which means U.S. announcement and availability details could be coming up soon.
