Moto E will be thinner, smaller and have microSD support
The Moto G is Motorola's best selling smartphone of all time and one of the best value mobiles on the market today. Therefore it's no surprise to hear that Motorola are busy working on a successor to the smartphone, which is to be known as the Moto E.
One of our few criticisms of the Moto G (pictured above) was that it was slightly bulky (at 11.6mm), but that looks set to be resolved with the new Moto E which is rumoured to be just 6.2mm thick.
The Moto E is thought to have a slightly smaller 4.3-inch display (reduced from 4.5-inches), which will run at the same 720p resolution resulting in a higher 341ppi. More good news, it'll also come with a microSD port that was lacking on its predecessor.
When it comes to power it's expected to come with a dual-core 1.2GHz processor. Apparently, the 5 mega-pixel camera featured on the Moto G will be retained and it'll come in same choice of either 8 or 16GB of onboard memory.
All of this information was leaked by a Mexican source and is unconfirmed by Motorola themselves.
We're hoping the rumours holds true because the Moto E looks set to improve on the already excellent Moto G. Hopefully it retains the same £135 pricepoint, but we wouldn't object to a slightly higher priced model complete with support for 4G!
The release date remains a mystery, but as soon we hear more about the Moto E you'll be the first to know.
