Motorola unveiled the Moto E officially in India today. The Moto E joins the Moto G and the Moto X and continues Motorola's trend of offering great value for money handsets. Motorola has confirmed that the Moto E will be available for sale in India from midnight tonight on Flipkart, India's largest e-commerce store.
The specs of the Moto E match what we've seen in leaked rumors over the last month, although there are a few variations. The device has a 4.3-inch qHD screen with a pixel density of 256 ppi, whereas the rumors alluded to a 720p display. Although the screen resolution isn't 720p, the device is coated with Corning's Gorilla Glass 3, which offers scratch resistance.
Other specs include a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 SoC, 1 GB RAM, 4 GB internal memory, microSD card slot to extend storage to 32 GB, 5 MP camera (no front camera), FM radio, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and dual-SIM connectivity. Motorola claims that the 1980 mAh Li-Ion battery is geared to last the device an entire day on a single charge. On the software side of things, the Moto E runs Android 4.4 KitKat, with Motorola stating that the device would continue to receive new version updates in a timely fashion.
The pricing of the Moto E is another factor that caught many off guard, as rumors suggested that it would be in the $200 segment. However, the device will be available for just Rs. 6,999 ($120) in India on Flipkart.
