New Delhi: Motorola is all set to introduce its low cost smartphone at an event in Delhi and London on May 13. A report suggests that the smartphone will be named as the Moto E.
AndroidOS.in while leafing through Zauba.com, an Indian export-import logistical company database, stumbled upon the shipment details of the Motorola Moto E, suggesting the devices have already landed in Bangalore from China, thus confirming its possible launch in Delhi.

The introduction of Moto E under the Rs 10,000 range will certainly shake up the budget smartphone market in India rule by domestic players. Already, Moto G, the elder sibling of Motorola Moto E, is having a firm grip in the mid-range smartphone market in India.

Moto E is said to have a 4.3-inch screen, and unconfirmed reports suggest the device would have a 720p display.

The Moto E is likely to offer a 5-MP rear-facing camera, which is capable of capturing photos up to 2,592 х 1,944 pixels, with LED flash, and a 1.3-MP front-facing camera unit.
The smartphone will have 4 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 32 GB through a micro-SD card.
Moto E will house 1,900 mAh, Li-Ion battery unit but by considering other parameters and features of this phone, the handset should be able to last for a day with a single charge.
