Update: Alas, the stocks didn’t even last till evening. Both the white and black models of the Moto E are out of stock again. We wonder what Flipkart will do to meet this large demand the next time.
Original Story: Much in demand is the affordable yet value-packed Moto E smartphone from Motorola which is sold only via Flipkart. After vanishing off its repositories twice since release, the handset appears to have gone on sale yet again, with the expected limited quantities of stock.
Those who had registered to be notified when the device will be made available have started receiving their emails, and they can now place their orders on the site. Both the white and black models can be bought at the much appreciated price of Rs 6,999.
Equipped with the Android 4.4 KitKat OS, the Moto E runs on a Snapdragon 200 chipset, featuring a 1.2GHz dual core processor. It’s a dual SIM phone that bears a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, spewing its visuals out in a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels.
Motorola has blessed the smartphone with a few rugged attributes as well. It’s front panel comes coated with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for added protection against scratches and smudges, whereas it is also said to be resistant to splashes of water.
Here’s a neat look at its main specs:
– Display: 4.3-inch, qHD resolution of 540 x 960 pixels
– Processor: 1.2GHz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200
– GPU: 400MHz Adreno 302
– Memory: 1GB RAM, 4GB storage (expandable up to 32GB)
– Camera: 5MP rear
– OS: Android 4.4 KitKat (guaranteed future update)
– Battery: 1980mAh
– Dimensions: 64.8mm x 124.8mm x 12.3mm
– Weight: 142gms
– Connectivity: 3G, Wi-Fi, GPS and microUSB
Introduced on May 13, it went on sale in India the following day and went out of stock a few days later. The following week, Flipkart announced that 20,000 more units will be made available again on May 23, and these managed to vanish after just a couple of hours following their arrival.
It is hence that this third coming of the Moto E is being seen as an elusive opportunity for expectant buyers. If you’re one of them, head over to this link and book one for yourself as soon as possible.
