Announced today, the Motorola Moto E is Motorola’s smallest, most affordable smartphone yet. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor and running Android 4.4 (KitKat), the Moto E offers serious value for an entry-level mobile phone.
The Moto E touts impressive specs for the price: A 4.3-inch 960 x 540 qHD touchscreen, 4GB of memory — expandable to 32GB with a microSD card — and a 5MP camera.
The real draw of the Moto E, however, is just how travel-friendly it is. A dual-SIM slot lets users manage two separate numbers and wireless networks on the same phone—ideal for roaming between countries and carriers. And thanks in part to the battery-efficient Snapdragon 200 processor; the Moto E's 1980mAh battery can handle mixed usage for up to 24 hours on a single charge. The whole package comes in a lightweight, 5-ounce body that tapers to just 6.2 millimeters.
It's not just an invaluable companion to frequent travelers. The versatility and accessible pricing of the Moto E means that it's the ideal entry-level smartphone for for anybody who simply wants a phone that's economically designed and user friendly.
The Motorola Moto E is now available to pre-order in the U.S. through Motorola.com. It's unlocked, contract-free, and retails for $129.00. And comes with over 20 interchangeable Motorola Shells to customize your E and make it your own.
Motorola also updated the Moto G today with a 4G LTE version for just $219. The first generation Moto G is still available for $179. Both are available through Motorola.com.
