Motorola, which was recently bought from Google by Chinese company Lenovo, was supposed to reveal a new device under their new parent company’s supervision at an event tomorrow but the details for at least one device, the Moto E, were inadvertently revealed by a Brazilian online retailer recently.
The retailer, FastShop, noticed their mistake but not in time to prevent the details from being made known to the world at large. The Moto E, which doesn’t have a price or release date yet, is set to be a lower-end device that shouldn’t carry a very hectic price tag.
The Moto E should have a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of system memory and 4GB of storage with 32GB of microSD expansion being supported by the device. It will carry a 1,980mAh battery and should be shipping with a 5MP camera. This sort of smartphone seems to be gaining in popularity as smartphones make inroads into lower-income markets and it looks like Motorola and Lenovo are keen to capitalise on that.
Pricing and launch may be unknown but the fact that the reveal was made by an e-tailer means that availability can’t be that far off. We should know more tomorrow.
