Motorola is all set to bring the Moto E3 to India on September 19, a couple of months after the phone made its debut in the UK. The handset’s arrival was confirmed by Lenovo APAC President Ken Wong at IFA 2016.
Wong also asserted that the Moto E3 would go up for sale in late September. The month will additionally see the launch of the Moto G4 Play on September 6, making it a busy time for Motorola’s budget portfolio. The two are in fact very similar in terms of specs, with the former aiming for the entry-level crowd and the latter for the mid-range one.
The Moto E3 offers a number of upgrades over its predecessor while still maintaining the same basic design aesthetic and affordable cost. The smartphone is available at £99 (roughly Rs 8762) in the UK, effectively making it the cheapest product to come out of the brand’s 2016 lineup of smartphones till date.
There’s no word on whether Motorola plans to introduce the phone’s recently unveiled sibling the Moto E3 Power to India as well. That particular device has only been spotted in Hong Kong so far priced at HKD 1098 (approximately Rs 9500). As can be guessed by its name, the newer device offers a bigger 3500mAh battery rather than its older variant’s 2800mAh one.
Here’s a quick recap of the top specifications of the Motorola Moto E3:
– Display: 5-inch, 720 x 1280 pixels
