Motorola Moto E leaks out: slim, compact, affordable

After a few new sleek and affordable Motorola phones leaked out under their cryptic model numbers recently, we now learn that at least one of them will arrive as the Moto E, an affordable device similar to the Moto G, but featuring a much thinner and more compact body.

The Moto E has surfaced in Mexico where it will be priced at around $230 off-contract (between 2999 pesos), almost the same price as the Moto G. Why Mexico you may wonder? Simple, the Latin American market has been the prime target for such a class of affordable devices, and Mexico and Brazil were some of the biggest launchpads for the Moto G.

What about the specs of the Moto E? We are looking at a very close copy of the Mogo G:

The most notable feature of the Moto E is how thin it is - measuring just 6mm (0.236"). This along with the possible 4.3-inch display, would make for a truly compact, razor thin smartphone, in the best traditions of Motorola. The Moto E release date is allegedly set for sometime during the next few weeks, so stay tuned for more details.

Ye but its still good, moto use almost vanilla android and dont need much processing power, plus 4.4 is so great and low demanding. Should be a great phone for Brazil/Mexico where its flooded with crappy phones from sony, samsung etc

I can't believe that for a $100 its going to have a 1280x720 display and a micro SD card. If this phone has all these features for $100. Then it will sell like hot cakes.

You just contradicted your yourself again. You claimed to hate android in WP thread about Cortana, but you're going to buy this.

The only things that attracts me to this phone are the price and its 6mm thinness, not a the OS. Just clarifying myself.

It makes my expensive flagship G2 feel shamed how great moto G is and it performs the same. Just mediocre camera but its expected from its price range.

moto g is priced 200$....... and I think this should be priced around 150$-180$ because it has dual-core processor and 4gb internal memory(will probably have micro SD card slot) and shorter screen.....

19. express77 unregistered

4 GB. Not you too moto. I know its entry level but its also 2014.

No kidding. The cheapest phones out there like the T-Mobile $49.99 Alcatel One Touch Evolve actually run fine until you max out the 4 GB internal storage then they simply stop running smoothly. The kicker is that if you update all the stock Google apps that come with these phones it fills up that 4 GB instantly. I can't believe manufacturers still release phones with such a crippling stat like that.

the battery life on this thing sucks. It has a 1.900 mAh battery. That would last about two minutes of normal usage.

Ever used moto g???? Out has 2070mAh....and outlast any midrangers....it's on par with 2013 flagships in battery life.... With this having a more efficient processor....1900mAh will do..
