Motorola is expected to announce a new flagship smartphone along with its Moto 360 smartwatch sometime this summer, but we’re also eagerly anticipating the Moto E, a rumored follow-up to the budget-friendly Moto G that hit the market last year. This week the low-cost device leaked again on its way to India, revealing a potential price tag at just over $100 off-contract.
The Moto E was spotted earlier today on Indian import-tracking website Zaubu.com. The listing refers to the device specifically as the Moto E, though only one model appears on the shipment sheet. Other rumors have suggested a single-SIM version, a dual-SIM model and a more expensive dual-SIM phone with a digital TV tuner are also on the way. Zaubu also reveals that the new smartphone, which shipped from China, is valued at just 6,330 Indian Rupees (roughly $105), though the retail price could be a bit higher when it hits the market.
Based on previous leaks, we’re expecting the Moto E to pack a 4.3-inch 720p display, a 1.2GH dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of onboard storage, a 5-megapixel camera and a 1900mAh battery. If Motorola’s recent product history is any indication the new handset will run the latest version of Android 4.4 and may even offer new unique customization option.
The Moto G made its debut as a low-cost device targeted at emerging smartphone markets, like Latin America, and it’s likely the Moto E will follow in the same footsteps. Here’s a look at the shipment table referenced:
