As of writing this, we don’t have any specific information about the availability of the smartphone in other countries and regions.
Motorola Moto E3 Specs
On the specifications front, the Moto E3 features a 5-inch HD IPS display paired with a built-in smudge-resistant screen protector. Even though the device will be powered by a quad-core SoC, Motorola hasn’t revealed the actual specifications of the processor and the kind of graphics. However, the Moto E3 will offer a 2800mAh battery, although we don’t have any specific information about the integration of fast charging technology.
While few sources report that details of the internal specs are not available, there are indications about them in other popular tech portals. As per reports, which we can’t fully confirm, the Moto E3 will be shipped with 1GB of RAM coupled with 8GB of expandable internal storage.
The main attraction of Moto E3 is the addition of a water-resistant body. If you look at budget Android smartphones, you will not be able to find any device which is water-resistant and hence the move by Motorola is welcomed by tech enthusiasts.
While the rear camera features an 8-megapixel sensor with LED flash, the front-facing snapper is equipped with a 5-megapixel sensor. Moreover, there are reports that the Lenovo-owned company will release Moto E3 is both single and dual SIM variants loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.
In the connectivity department, the Moto E3 offers 4G including all other standard options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Priced at GBP 99 ($131), the Moto E3 will be sold through Tesco, Amazon, Argos, and O2 starting early September.
The upcoming Moto E3 will have to face tough competition from the Moto G4 Play since it offers improved specifications for GBP 30 extra with Snapdragon 410 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage with other specs remaining the same.
