Flipkart Offers Moto E Teaser: Available On 14th May


To say Moto G was a bumper success is an understatement. Available exclusively on Flipkart, Moto G flew off the shelf within minutes from the launch. Even Flipkart had issues handling the traffic for this much coveted phone. Then came the premium Moto X and it received mixed response, it did not sell as much as expected, even with some aggressive push from Flipkart.

Now, Motorola will be launching Moto E in India, the budget smartphone which will be priced below Rs. 10k. This time too, like it’s predecessors, it will be available exclusively on Flipkart. They have even sent out a teaser on multiple channels, including Facebook and Twitter. The teaser does not name the phone, but it is quite clear that it will be Moto E (there is no other phone in Motorola stable that is expected to launch)

Here is the Flipkart teaser.

Moto E teaser

From the teaser it is quite clear as to who are the targeted audience. Moto E is targeted at first time smartphone users, who will be graduating from a feature phone. Lets look at Moto E phone a bit detail.

Moto E Specifications

Given that it is a budget phone, the specifications are average. Moto E has a 4.3 inch screen having 256 ppi pixel density. Armed with dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor, it has 1GB ram memory, 4GB internal storage that can be expanded upto 32GB using a microSD card. On connectivity front, it has 3G, Wifi, Bluetooth and all other regular connectivity options.

As far as the camera goes, it has a 5 megapixel rear shooter. However, it does not seem to have a front camera at all (a real surprise).

What is nice to see is that it has a 1980 mAh battery, that should easily last more than a day on moderate usage on a 4.3 inch screen.

The best part is, it comes with latest Android OS version – KitKat 4.4.2 with minimum of customizations.

The phone is expected to come in colorful shells, just like it’s predecessors Moto G and Moto X.

Moto E Price & Availability

No official confirmation on price is given. However, given the specifications, we thing Moto E should not be priced over Rs. 8,000. We expect the price to be between Rs. 7k to Rs. 8k!

The Moto E is expected to be officially launched at a May 13 event in London. In all likelihood, Indian users should be able to order Moto E from Flipkart from May 14th onwards.

If priced below Rs. 8k, Moto E should definitely be an attractive option for first time smartphone buyers.
