Motorola has slashed the price of Moto E 2 Gen 3G to Rs 5,999 from Rs 6,999 on Flipkart. Apart from the price slash the online store is also offering the phone at Rs 3,999 as part of the exchange offer. Moto E 2 Gen was released in early 2015 and it somehow got missed amidst the more capable devices from the Chinese manufacturers.
Moto E 2Gen is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor paired with a 1GB of RAM. The internal storage stands at a respectable 8GB and the external memory card slot can accommodate an additional 32GB. Camera department is handled by a 5-Megapixel primary sensor sans LED flash and an ancient VGA sensor which serves as the front camera.
At a time when manufacturers like Xiaomi are beefing up their product lines with uber affordable phone like Redmi 2 which comes with class leading features like a 8-Megapixel primary sensor along with an LED flash, Motorola seems to have stuck with the less capable hardware for the Moto E 2Gen.
Not long ago Motorola had disrupted the budget smartphone market with devices like Moto E and Moto G but they couldn’t piggyback on the success for long, courtesy the new entrants which promised more features in the same price bracket. Moto E 2Gen earns brownie points when it comes to performance thanks to its stock Android albeit any of those obese overlays.
Motorola has recently sent out invites for an event which will be held on 28 of July thus indirectly hinting the launch of the rumored Moto G (Gen 3) and Moto X (Gen 3). Motorola is claiming that the new lineup will be crafted to help users develop a special bond with the phone. The saying on the invite goes “A good friend will offer you their umbrella when it rains. A best friend will forever be ready to dance in the rain with you” which might be subtly hinting at water resistant feature.
