Motorola just outed its new Moto E3, which follows the same evolution pattern as this year's Moto G4/ G4 Plus. The new affordable Moto E3 looks identical to the G4 or G4 Plus from the rear side. On the front, it has an extra slit below its 5-inch HD display, which might purely be for aesthetic reasons for all we know.
The display also comes with a "built-in smudge-resistant screen protector," which again feels like a dubious marketing term. On the inside, the Moto E3 has a quad-core processor (details unspecified) backed by 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. That certainly doesn't sound like much in 2016. A MicoSD card slot might offer some consolation for basic users.
In line with Moto traditions, the new E3 is running latest Android Marshmallow software out of the box, and might very well receive Android N update later. Other features include a 2800 mAh battery, 8MP rear camera, and a 5MP selfie shooter.
Going by the exchange rates and UK price of 100 Pounds, the Moto E3 is expected to retail for around 9K in India. It doesn't seem very likely that Motorola Moto E3 price in India will be the same as the one on the UK variant. As you can see, a handful of variables are still unknown and we will have a clearer insight on the new Moto E once its goes official in India, which is likely to happen in late August or September 2016. A lot can change in a month.
