Motorola brings Moto E 4G to India via Flipkart
Motorola has introduced its new Moto E 4G variant for the Indian market. The device, currently priced at INR 7,999, is available for pre-orders exclusively on Flipkart starting April 13, 2015.
The new Moto E 4G runs on Android Lollipop and is equipped with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor with a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and advanced graphics. It was designed to accomodate 4G speed and comes with a 4.5 inch qHD display, along with various customization options. The 2390 mAh battery is expected to provide a full day of operation without re-charging.
The device features a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a selfie camera is installed in the front, either of which can be used to launch the phone’s Quick Capture feature. Quick Capture allows a user to access the camera with a double twisting motion of the wrist, without touching the phone’s screen. A third twist will switch the view from the rear-facing camera to the front camera.
Other features include Moto Display, which allows for notifications and updates without interruptions, and Moto Migrate, which facilitates the transfer of contacts, photos and videos from a user’s old phone to the Moto E 4G.
Available accessories include interchangeable Motorola Bands and Grip Shells in colors such as turquoise or raspberry. The Grip Shell is meant to provide added protection from scrapes and spills.
Regarding the new Moto E 4G, Motorola said, “We’re all about giving people the power to choose. That’s what drives us and that’s the idea behind the new Moto E 4G, that a great smartphone should be a choice for everyone. So we saw an opportunity to make a great, affordable device for people who don’t want to spend a lot money. For the first time, we’re bringing personalized software experiences that we introduced with Moto X to our most affordable device. The new Moto E packs a bigger smartphone punch for a fraction of the average smartphone cost. The new Moto E with 4G network is especially advantageous for mobile devices. Moto E 4G users will be able to stream music, videos and movies at a much faster rate than ever before and can also easily share information online.”
