Motorola Moto E leaks ahead of London launch

Motorola’s next smartphone, expected to be called the Moto E, has been comprehensively leaked online ahead of a media event held by the company in London on 13 May.


Images posted online by the notorious and highly accurate Evan Blass reveal a budget Android smartphone with a 4.3-inch screen, a range of colourful rear covers, and a design very similar to the company’s last budget handset, the Moto G.


This will be the first handset launched by Motorola since it was sold by Google to Chinese company Lenovo early this year. Short of being a replacement for the top-end Moto X, the phone expected at tomorrow’s event will be aimed at the budget end of the market, with a SIM-free price thought to be under £140.


The Moto E is tipped to have a 1.2GHz, dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch screen with a resolution no higher than 1280 x 720, a 5-megapixel camera and Android 4.4 KitKat.


An invitation sent out by Motorola describes the phone as “Made to last. Priced for all.”


Mobile Choice will be at the event in London tomorrow morning, so be sure to check back for all the news from Motorola soon.
