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.
