Motorola was acquired by Lenovo some two years ago and since then, many Moto lovers have been drifting to other devices in the Android niche.
In a bid to recapture the millions of people who fell in love with Motorola devices back in the days, Lenovo has been busy this year with revamps for the Moto G and Moto Z series. While these two are good enough for the mid and high-end markets, the Moto E series is known as the king of low-end handsets. The 2016 version keeps this title as it brings in an even bigger, better and more affordable handset.
Dubbed the Moto E3, the handset will entice those who have been yearning for a larger display screen on their Moto E handsets. The phone drops the 4.5-inch display panel that has seen the Moto E become such a popular phone and instead, it comes in with a larger 5-inch display panel with HD resolution. Apart from this, the new Moto E 2016 also comes with a 4-core processor and a decent 2800mAh battery unit, which Lenovo promises that it will take you through an entire day with a single charge.
Being a low-end offering, the back of the Moto E3 has an 8MP snapper whereas the front panel carries an even better 5MP selfie camera, which should also be decent for video calls. While there are no details on the storage options to be offered, expect a microSD card slot to be on board for expanding the available memory, which will probably be 16GB.
As for the price and availability of the Moto E 2016, the report says that it will be in the UK as from early September with a price tag of £99, which is an equivalent of about $132. Lovers of this phone can get it from select stores in the country, among them Amazon, Tesco as well as Argos. As for its international debut, the Moto E3 should make it before the end of the same month of September.
