There’s little we don’t know on relatively good authority at this point about the Moto E. This device is meant to take the rather-successful low-end smartphone Moto G to a new level. This means keeping the experience very, very similar to the Moto G while cutting down specifications to the bare minimum, cutting down cost in the process.
Motorola seems to have realized their strength at last. Instead of focusing on beating the higher-end devices like HTC One (M8), Samsung Galaxy S5, and iPhone 6, Motorola will continue to take the battle off-contract. While hero smartphones cost upwards of $600 USD off-contract, the Moto G costs $179 USD.
We can expect the Moto E to cost even less.
The Moto E will work with the following details as well – for a comparison to the Moto G, have a peek at our Moto E vs Moto G article, then our Moto G vs Moto X guide for good measure.
• 4.2-inch display
• 540 x 960 pixels
• Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core 1.2GHz processor
• 5-megapixel camera back-facing, no front-facing camera
• 4GB internal storage
• MicroSD card slot for 32GB expansion
This device will come in white or black fronts and a multitude of back-facing covers. This is similar to the Moto E, which has an online Motorola “Maker” console which allows you to choose your cover right out of the box.
