Moto E3 Power officially launches in India with 3,500 mAh battery for $120
It goes without saying that Lenovo and Motorola have had a pretty busy year together. This is the first year that we truly got to see Lenovo's ideas shine through with Motorola's product line, and those ideas have resulted in some pretty solid products. So far in 2016, we've already gotten the Moto G4, Moto G4 Play, Moto G4 Plus, Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z Play. Oh yeah, and that's not to mention the introduction of the insanely cool Moto Mods.

While some OEMs would look at that and call it good, that's not the case for Lenovo and Motorola. Lenovo officially took the stage at a press conference in New Delhi today to officially launch the new Moto E3 Power. The phone went up for sale in Hong Kong late last month, but didn't get the official launch treatment until just today. The phone features a 5-inch display with a moderate resolution of 1280 x 720p HD, features a MediaTek quad-core MT6735P processor that's clocked at 1GHz, and utilizes 2GB of RAM for light multitasking.


While none of that is entirely impressive, perhaps the most notable spec is the phone's battery. We're looking at a handset that features a battery with a capacity of 3,500 mAh, and for those keeping track at home, that's the same capacity we saw in Samsung's Galaxy Note 7. However, rather than powering a 5.7-inch display with Quad HD resolution, the one in the Moto E3 Power will be powering that measly 5-inch 720p HD panel. In other words, Lenovo's Moto E3 Power should be capable of some rather insane endurance in the battery department.

Other specs for the phone include an 8MP rear camera, 5MP selfie shooter, 16GB of expandable storage via a microSD card (up to 32GB), and Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. The handset is available in India exclusively through Flipkart, and it will run customers Rs. 7,999. In USD, that comes out to just $120. There currently isn't any word as to whether or not the phone will be making its way to the United States, but if it did, would you consider purchasing the Moto E3 Power? Although the majority of the specs are pretty mediocre for 2016, the possible battery endurance this phone can deliver should be nothing short of amazing.

PA: Which is another phone u recommend considering $120 price range?. i believe none.. This phone is perfectly fine for basic user with little multitasking.. Cant expect more for 100-120 price considering timeline updates for next 2 years..

redmi 3s has 4000mah with 5inch, metal finnish, if youpay $12-15 more you get the prime version of redmi with 3gb ram and 32gb internal memory with fingerprint and ir blaster...Redmi are king of budget phone, you can see many handsets around. Even though I'm using moto right now, i think redmi 3s are better than this particular moto
