Everyone is still excited after the recent launch of the Moto G4. As far as value goes, the new Moto G4 offers a nice balance between price and performance. Apparently, Motorola – and Lenovo, who now owns the brand – has no plan of stopping just yet. The officially announced another new Android smartphone: the Moto E3.
Like the Moto E, the new Moto E3 is aimed more towards the lower end of the market. Even so, what Motorola offers through the E3 is nothing short of stunning. For starters, you get an improved 5-inch IPS HD display. You can expect the display to be bright, crisp and has a very good viewing angle.
The device also ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow as standard. I’m sure an update to the upcoming Android Nougat will also be available in a timely manner. After all, quick updates are among the many appeals of Motorola handsets these days.
Motorola is yet to confirm the processor and chipset it will use for the Moto E3, but the company said the device will come with a quad-core processor and a microSD slot. Details about RAM and internal storage is also still unreleased.
The Moto E3 officially supports dual-SIM 4G LTE. It is designed to work with worldwide LTE networks, which means support for multiple LTE bands is present.
Wi-Fi 802.11n, an 8-megapixel rear camera paired with a 5-megapixel front shooter and of course Bluetooth 4.0 are also among the things you will get with the Moto E3. It is also confirmed that the Moto E3 will have a splash-resistant body. This is an interesting addition to the E3, especially since a lot of users are disappointed by the lack of water-resistance in the G4 and G4 Plus.
Price and Availability
The new Moto E3 will be available in the US in September, followed by a launch in the UK. The device is scheduled for a Q3 launch indeed, but there is no other details about where it will be available around the world. Based on the Moto E, we can expect Lenovo and Motorola to bring the Moto E3 to major Asian markets, including India and Indonesia.
Are you ready for the price? All of these goodness can be yours for just $131 in the US (£99 in the UK). This places the Moto E3 right on the sweet spot of entry-level Android phones. If you’re thinking about getting a secondary phone, this little package will also be an appealing option to consider.
