Ed. Note: The 2015 Moto E, released in early March, will remain on Android 5.1 Lollipop and not be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was made available some seven months later. As such it is not a smartphone we can recommend purchasing.
The launch of the Moto E 2015 is set to continue Motorola's dominance in the entry-level segment in India.
After launching a rebranded Droid Turbo in India earlier this week, Motorola is now setting its sights on the budget segment with the launch of the Moto E 2015 in the country. The 3G-only version is available for purchase for Rs. 6,999 ($110), with both black and white color options listed.
In terms of hardware, the Moto E 2015 features a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, microSD card slot, 5MP camera at the back, VGA front shooter and a 2,390mAh battery. The handset comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
There are several launch day offers available to customers purchasing the device, including a free six-month subscription to Saavn Pro, an Indian music service that offers users the ability to download tracks to listen offline.
