We spy, with our little eye, leaked images of a Motorola phone

Is this Motorola’s first phone since Google sold it to Lenovo?

Meet what is said to be the Moto E, Motorola’s next inexpensive smartphone made with developing markets in mind.

And this may be Motorola’s first mobile launch since its smartphone unit changed hands from Google to Lenovo in January.

Thanks to Brazilian retailer, Fast Shop, we’re feasting our eyes on leaked images of the device. The retailer jumped the gun and put up the listing for the mobile device late last week but it’s actually expected to be revealed on 13 May in London.  

By the looks of it (if the leaked images are legit), it doesn’t differ much from the designs of the Moto X and the Moto G; and that comes as no surprise.

Keeping in mind that the gadget’s been designed and created under Google’s watch, as well as the fact that Motorola’s made it clear in its official launch invite that the Moto E is “priced for all”, we can’t expect an out-of-this-world design.

What has it?

Based on the specs that Fast Shop disclosed, the mobile will feature a 4.3in screen, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, dual SIM slots, as well as a 5-megapixel camera.

These specs are very similar to the S$318 (RM823) Moto G that was unveiled earlier this year in Singapore, so we can probably expect something within that bang-for-buck price range.

It’ll certainly be a good competitor to Xiaomi's mobile device it might be launching in a few days.

But don’t keep your hopes up – no information has been revealed if the device will be available in Malaysia, and since the launch is in London, it probably won’t hit the US shores too.
