Lenovo’s Motorola division just unveiled the 3rd generation Moto E. It’s a sort of pre-unveil, the phone is expected in September, that’s a month after the Moto G4 Play launches. The two phones are so similar that we’re struggling to find out what has changed.
The Moto E3 will have a 5″ 720p screen and a body that looks very much like the G4 Play. The inside will have water repellent nano coating and a 2,800mAh battery.
The E3 will be powered by a quad-core processor, perhaps using the same Snapdragon 410 chipset as the G4 Play, though that hasn’t been confirmed. It will launch with Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will have a microSD card for extra storage.
The Moto E3 will have an 8MP camera on the back and a 5MP camera on the front. It’s not clear if it will shoot 1080p video or not.
The phone will launch in September at an expected price of £100, down from Moto G4 Play’s £130. The Moto E3 will be available in UK stores like Amazon, Tesco, Argos and O2 in early September. The very similar Moto G4 Play is coming to the UK a earlier, in mid-August.
