A listing on Indian import and export database Zauba appears to confirm the Moto E name for Motorola's next handset. The specs of the handset were leaked earlier this month, and while those leaks referenced the Moto E name, this is the first time we're seeing the name appearing somewhere official. Zauba is a database that lists all handsets arriving on Indian shores.

The listing suggests that there will be three variants of the Moto E: The single-SIM version (XT1021), dual-SIM version (XT1022) and a dual-SIM model with digital TV (XT1025). The retail value of the units according to the listing suggests that the Moto E will cost around $130 to $140 in India (Rs. 7,999 to Rs. 8,999). Also confirmed is the fact that the Moto E will feature 4 GB of internal storage. While 4 GB is lesser than what is offered in the Moto G, it is believed that the Moto E will feature a micro-SD card slot.

Motorola is set to target a different audience with the Moto E. From recently-leaked specs, it looks like the device will be available in a thinner 6.2 mm chassis. The Moto G by comparison has a thickness of 11.6 mm. Other reported specs include a 4.3-inch 720p screen, 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB RAM, 5 MP camera, 1900 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.

Moto E name shows up in Indian import database


Just to let everyone know, Moto G that costs about $99 in the states, costs about $208 in India, so expect this to cost just about $49 (or $69) if it ever comes to the US.

EDIT: Unit cost shown in the screenshot is INR 6,330. Go ahead and put 12% to 15% retail markup and you end up with something around INR 7,099 (or INR 7,299 on higher side) instead of whats mentioned in the article, no?

It's the Razr 2 we were all waiting for......

Seriously though, if Motorola can make a 6.2mm phone that's not super-wide like the Razr, I will be really impressed. I think the tech is definitely there, and their build quality has always been top-notch.

I'm really glad to see Motorola pushing hard for good experiences on low-cost (Moto G) and very low-cost (Moto E) devices. Not everyone can afford a flagship, but they still deserve a device that isn't super frustrating to use.
