Looking for a new mid-range phone? If the Moto G isn’t what you’re looking for, it seems as though Motorola may be ready to launch another low-cost device soon. Recent reports suggest a device named the Moto E will follow in the footsteps of it’s predecessors, and solve a complaint held by some in slimming down a touch.
The device is expected to be a low cost offering to complement Motorola’s other offerings, though little is known about it right now. Xataka notes the device will be “priced between the 2,999 and 3,199 weights” (weight being the translation of “peso”). If true, that puts it right around the $230 mark, given current currency conversions.
Spec-wise, the Moto E is rumored to have a 720p screen like the Moto G, but no sizing is noted. A dual-core 1.2GHz processor is also said to be on board, backed by 1GB RAM. A 5MP camera and 1,900mAh battery keep it running, and 4GB (possible expandable) memory keeps your files safe.
While that sounds a lot like the G, the source notes that the Moto E will check in around 6mm thin — the Moto G is nearly double that. Such a slim size suggests the customization options would go away, since much of the heft we find with the Moto G comes with internals needing to be tucked away so we can change the rear plate — though it’s said to be offered in both black and white options.
The device — which is also touted as very Moto G in design — should be hitting Mexico soon, arriving on TelCel. There is no word on whether Motorola is concentrating on the booming Latin markets with this device, or simply launching in Mexico before bringing it to the rest of the world.
