Just like every other year, American handset maker, Motorola is launching a series of smartphones this year as well under its Moto series. The handset maker has already launched the Moto G this year and the device has taken the market by storm owing to its good spec sheet, brilliant camera and front mounted fingerprint scanner. Following the trend adopted by the brand in past, we can expect Moto E3 to be the next smartphone to come out of Motorola’s stable. While there is no information available on the Internet about the handset, all sort of rumours are already afloat as Moto E happens to be one of the best entry level smartphone to exist in the market, till date. Here is all that is known about the upcoming handset.
Will it still bear a price tag that is too good to be true?
In the past, Motorola came up with Moto G, which put Android smartphone within the reach of ever buyer in India and was a massive hit. However, that was not enough for Motorola and it came out with Moto E, which was an entry level device and was even more successful than Moto G in India. The point here is that the price of this handset is the highlight and it is unlikely that Motorola will change that. Therefore, one can expect this handset to come with a price tag, which under INR 7,000 and goes inline with the pricing trend of the handset in past.
Will the display remain same or be improved?
If the speculations are to be believed, the handset maker will give Moto E a major upgrade on the display front, this year. It is being speculated that the new device would come with a larger 5-inch display, which is a good news for Moto E loyalists, who also love watching multimedia on their smartphones. The resolution would also be bumped to 1280 x 720p for a better viewing experience and sharper display. Additionally, the display will be protected by Corning Gorilla Glass as is the norm with all Moto series of handsets.
Will the camera be as impressive as last generation?
Motorola’s Moto handsets are known for their impressive imaging prowess irrespective of the pixel count on the camera module. This is usually because of the hyper auto HDR mode in the camera that churns out some good images under ambient lighting condition. It is to be expected that the new device would come with improved camera setup and provide better imaging experience than its predecessors. The rear panel of this handset is expected to house an 8 Megapixels snapper that is perfect for day to day photography. The front panel of the handset is also expected to feature a 5 Megapixels shooter to get it into selfie smartphone category.
Will the performance be as good or better?
There is not much known about the processor on the upcoming Motorola Moto E3 but it is to be expected that the handset will come flaunting a Snapdragon processor. In all probability it would be the same Snapdragon 410 Quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz as found in Moto E2. It is also being speculated that the processor of the handset would feature atleast 2 GB of RAM to assist in performance and smoothness. We can also be sure that the device would come with the latest Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow operating system and will receive the Nougat update as well.
Motorola should replicate the Moto G4’s design
On the design front, we can expect the handset to come with the same build and make as that on the Moto G4/Plus. This means the same camera and flash placement and water-resistant unibody design. However, it is not sure yet whether the device would feature the fingerprint scanner on the front panel or not.
This is all that is currently known about the upcoming entry level smartphone and should be taken with a pinch of salt. The handset maker might launch the new entry level smartphone soon and we are certain it would fly off the shelves as soon as it arrives.
