Motorola may be preparing to launch a new smartphone on the Android platform that may be more affordable and slimmer than its very successful Moto G.
The new phone, which may be called Moto E, is rumored to be coming out in May, and it will be only 6.2mm thick. Based on leaked photos of the phone, experts predict it will have a 4.3-inch display, a 5-megapixel camera, 4GB of storage, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. It is expected to run off Android 4.4 KitKat.
At the moment, the phone may be launched in Brazil. It could enter the American market if it does in that country.
The phone will come in three versions, differing in the types of SIMs they use. The most expensive one is thought to be priced at $267 retail, making it rather affordable in the world of smartphones.
It seems that Motorola is tapping into the “thin is better” craze that most manufacturers are abiding by. Consumers can’t get enough of their super slim phones, no matter how breakable they may seem. Motorola seems to have found a way to make these slim phones more affordable for the average consumer.
