Sure, Motorola may have released a new lineup of Moto smartphones more than a month ago (the Moto Z series, which consists of the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force), but it does not mean that the phone maker has outright left its Moto E series of handsets for dead. As a matter of fact, Motorola has just officially announced the Moto E3, which should be a welcome addition to the current roster of Moto E budget friendly smartphones.
The Moto E3 boasts a 5 inch HD display screen, which represents a significant upgrade over the 4.5 inch display screen sported by 2015’s Moto E. But with regards to camera specifications, Motorola has opted to remain with the 8 megapixel camera on the rear side and the 5 megapixel camera on the front side. As far as looks go, the Moto E3 does appear consistent with past Moto E offerings, at least in terms of overall design. Also, the latest Moto E smartphone is splash proof, with a nano coating that makes for a water repellant armor that should prove handy. But the device is not entirely water proof though. Plus, there is a built in smudge resistant display screen protector, which should keep it clean from fingerprints.
Hardware specifications wise, the Moto E3 comes with a four core chip set, although Motorola has not disclosed yet which processor exactly. Same thing with the amount of gigabytes of random access memory (RAM). But the storage configuration will likely include options of 8 gigabytes or 16 gigabytes of internal memory, plus a micro SD card slot for expanding memory. The device also features a 2,800 mAh battery, which should last a full 24 hours of mixed use, and is an improvement over the Moto E’s 2,390 mAh battery. Software wise, the handset is powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The Moto E3 is expected to be made available in the United Kingdom mobile market by early September of this year at a price of about $132. Select retail outlets such as Tesco, Amazon, and Argos will be selling the device. What about in the United States mobile market? No word on that yet, but Moto devices are generally well received in America, and there is no reason for the Moto E3 to not be released in the US, too.
