Upcoming Moto E allegedly spotted side-by-side the Moto G
Less than an hour ago, we reported on the possibility of several new Moto G variants that could be on their way in the not-too-distant future. It seems that’s not the only Motorola related news we have for you today, as the Moto E has now allegedly be spotted in an image that shows it side-by-side the Moto G.
The image comes to us by way of Android Police, and apparently was originally posted up by someone on Motorola’s Mexico Facebook page. As you can see, the image shows a device to the right that looks admittedly a bit cheaper than the Moto G, as well as a little smaller. The aesthetics are also clearly different, and it seems to be lacking a front-facing camera. It does, however, feature what appears to be a light sensor next to the ear piece. While the lack of a front-facing camera is a bit annoying, if this handset is sub-$100 like many rumors suggest, we really aren’t terribly surprised.
As for the specs? While the image doesn’t give anything new away, previous rumors indicate the handset will be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM. Other specs include a 5MP rear cam, a 4.3-inch display, 4GB storage, a 1900 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
Obviously the specs aren’t exactly impressive, but the price sure is. The main target of the device will be emerging markets, though it could very likely show up in major markets as a low-cost/prepaid option as well.
We still don’t know much solid information about this alleged device, but thankfully we don’t have much longer to wait, as the low-cost Motorola handset is expected to formally be unveiled May 13th. For now, we’d take the above image with a grain of salt, though it could very well be the real deal.
