Motorola's Moto E Finds its Way Online Ahead of Tuesday's Reveal

By Gerald Lynch on at

The first handset out of Motorola's stable since it snuggled up with Lenovo, the expected launch of this week's Moto E handset is a big deal for the company. So it'll probably be a bit miffed that serial leaker EvLeaks has popped the first images of the handset online already, ahead of any meticulously-planned launch.

Looking much like the Moto G (and expected to land at a price point even cheaper than that of its budget predecessor), it too looks set to land in a range of colour options, with turquoise and lemon yellow on display in the leaked photo. It's likely that Motorola will offer a range of colourful cases for the Moto E too, just as it did with the G, and could also offer the Moto Maker customisation options also.

As for the tech specs, the handset looks likely to launch with a 1.2Ghz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chip with 1GB of RAM, a 4.3-inch screen, Android KitKat 4.4 and a 5MP camera. If it can land at a price point lower than that of the Moto G did (sub-£140), as appears to be the plan, it could be a very attractive option for buyers on a budget. [EvLeaks via IntoMobile]
