Motorola teases the new Moto E, "Goodbye Flip Phone" hashtag included

Motorola is reminding us that it’s going to announce a brand new smartphone tomorrow, on May 13. The company took to Twitter to post a screenshot from the UI of the upcoming handset, while adding a #GoodbyeFlipPhone hashtag - which is a sign that the new device is made for first-time smartphone users.

While Motorola doesn’t mention new smartphone’s name, this is likely going to be "Moto E". The screenshot revealed today by the company looks just like the home screen of the alleged Moto E that was pictured over the week-end.

Another tweet from Motorola mentions that the new smartphone won’t be afraid to get “a little dirt” on its keypad. So the handset will probably be dust- and water-resistant (or maybe just splash-proof, we can’t know for certain at the moment).

Reportedly running Android 4.4 KitKat, the Moto E seems to be a 4.3-inch handset made with emerging markets in mind. It’s said that its features include a 5MP rear camera, a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of expandable internal memory, and a 1,980 mAh battery. We’ll have all the official details tomorrow, so stick around.
