New Motorola phone could launch in a couple of weeks
The last couple of Motorola phones were pretty impressive. There was the customisable and innovative Moto X and the incredibly good value Moto G, but then Lenovo bought the company and we haven’t seen anything from it since.
It looks like it’s about to launch its first phone since the takeover though, as invitations have been sent out for a London event on the 13th of May. The text on the invitations says “Introducing the next smartphone from Motorola…made to last. Priced for all.”
So we’re definitely going to see a new handset of some kind and we can take an educated guess as to what it will be. A phone called the Moto E has been rumoured for a while and it’s expected to be a budget Android phone with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a 4.3 inch 720 x 1280 screen and a 5 megapixel camera.
Those are specs which would see it sitting below the already very affordable Moto G and that’s why we expect this to be the phone that Motorola announces on the 13th, as whatever it is it’s apparently going to be “priced for all.”
However we’re also expecting another phone from Motorola soon, the Moto X+1, so there’s an outside chance that it could be this we see. It’s rather less likely as the Moto X is the company’s flagship, so a new version of that is hardly likely to carry a budget price tag, especially with rumoured specs including a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 5.2 inch 1080 x 1920 display, but you never know.
Either way, the 13th of May is fast approaching so we’ll soon see exactly what it is that Motorola has got in store.
