More details on Moto E3 have been leaked, while we are patiently waiting for the full specs. Motorola had previously revealed some of the specifications and a few pictures of the new smartphone, but there are still a few things we need to know.
The company has officially announced the E3 later this month, on July 14th. It is reported that the upcoming phone will feature a 5-inch HD display, a long-lasting 2,800 mAh battery, a quad-core CPU (a Mediatek processor), 1GB of RAM, and an 8GB internal memory. Users can also upgrade up to 32GB with an external microSD card.
To add more details on Moto E3, we should mention that it is believed to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Android M comes with Doze, a battery-saving app. Doze will put the phone into sleep mode when it is in standby, thus contributing to saving up battery life.
On the outside, the Moto E3 sports an 8MP back-facing camera, which should be able to pull off some decent picture, while the front-facing camera merely manages to provide 5MP for selfies.
The E3’s protective screen will be a “built-in smudge-resistant screen protector” but should we expect the new Gorilla Glass 5? Motorola has used the Gorilla Glass on in its previous smartphone models, and Corning has recently launched its new product. However, the phone is targeted as cheap and affordable, so we shouldn’t get our hopes up. According to recent leaks, the E3 will use the Splash Guard feature that protects devices from accidental spills. This just might be the “smudge-resistant screen protector”.
As for looks, this should be a slim device, coming in at 0.33 inch thin and weighing around 4.8 ounces.
Priced at about $130, it is targeted more towards the affordable market. The device is expected to first hit the UK market this September (but rumor has it we might get our hands on it earlier) and be released globally soon after.
