As expected, Motorola has launched low-cost Moto E smartphones along with the upgraded version of Moto G with LTE support and much awaited microSD card slot, most importantly, this is the first launch since the acquisition by Lenovo.
The alliance between Google and Motorola actually succeeded in having highest demand even before the Pre-launch of the two brand new smartphones from Motorola, Moto G and Moto X. Yet another enhanced version of Moto G is now announced by the company with 4G LTE support, along with additional slot for microSD holding a slight disappointment for its early consumers who bought the latest version of Moto G with no slot for microSD. The company has also unveiled the Moto E affordable smartphone too.
Comparing with the existing version, this official announcement would still fetch a lot of consumers for LTE enabled Moto G smartphone. A brief comparison of the features of this new version of Moto G with its older or the existing version points out the exact similarities between the two in terms of processor with both bearing a Snapdragon 400 chipset. Also there is no difference with the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protected LCD Display. Same 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 1GB of RAM has been added in the device.
The 4.3-inch Motorola Moto E will be having a 256ppi display, 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 quad-core processor, 5MP camera, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, microSD card slot and built-in FM radio. The comparative features of MOTO E makes it worth buying for the amount it is priced at, $129 without any contracts. One can look ahead to buy Moto E or Moto G with 4G LTE and microSD slot and the good part is both are the affordable ones!
The Moto G 4G is expected to be released by May 2014. Moto G 4G will be priced at $219 in United States, while the 8GB version of the handset will be launched in U.K in June 2014, for £149, slightly higher than the existing version.
The existing Moto G currently retails for $179 in the US and £135 in the UK . Will these new smartphones with a slight upgrade make any difference in the market?.
