Moto E name tipped by import database

The Moto E has been rumoured for quite some time, and now the name has cropped up in an official Indian import database.

A listing for the Moto E in Zauba, an Indian import and export database, has pretty much confirmed the name of Motorola’s upcoming budget handset.

Motorola released press invites for a new smartphone launch happening on May 13, with all indications suggesting the company will officially unveil the Moto E.

“Connect more people to the world’s information and each other. Introducing the next smartphone from Motorola to make these connections happen. Made to last. Priced for all” reads the official invite, with a strong budget phone focus.

Complementing the exceedingly successful, and already fairly cheap, Motorola Moto G, the Moto E should be thinner and more cost-effective than its sibling.

There should be single- and dual-SIM variants for the Moto E, with an expected price to be around the £80 – £88 mark.

The Moto E is only expected to feature 4GB of internal storage, but this should be partnered with microSD card support. The Moto G has a minimum of 8GB of storage, but doesn’t come with a microSD card slot and nor does the Motorola Moto X.

According to leaked specs we could see the Moto E come with a body just 6mm thick. To put this into perspective, the Moto G is 11.6mm thick, iPhone 5S 7.6mm and the super skinny Huawei Ascend P6 is 6.2mm.

We’re also expecting a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU with 1GB of RAM, much less powerful than the quad-core CPU packing Moto X and Moto G.

A 5-megapixel rear camera and 1900mAh battery are also tipped to make the cut, along with a 4.3-inch 720p HD display.
