Motorola Moto E price in India reduced to Rs. 5,999

Amid some rumours of its successor, Motorola has officially reduced the price tag of the Moto E entry-level smartphone in India. The smartphone is now available for Rs. 5,999, Rs. 1,000 less than its original price of Rs. 6,999.

The Moto E with its new price tag has now been listed on Flipkart and is available for purchase in India starting today.

Motorola launched the Moto E in India in May last year as its newest entry-level smartphone. The smartphone exclusively went on sale through Flipkart a day after its launch and was considered as a game changer in the rapidly growing Indian smartphone market with its decent specifications.

The Moto E features a 4.3-inch display with 960 x 540 pixels (qHD) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass protection. Under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with a 1.2GHz dual-core Cortex-A7 CPU, Adreno 302 GPU and 1GB of RAM. There is 4GB internal storage along with microSD card support for expansion up to 32GB.

The smartphone sports a 5-megapixel camera sensor on the rear but there is no camera sensor on the front. It has Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS and a microUSB port and comes along with dual-SIM support. There is a 1,980mAh battery which is claimed to provide up to 24 hours of talk time.

Motorola has provided Android 4.4 KitKat operating system on the Moto E with stock interface but its Android 5.0 Lollipop update is also set to be started rolling out in the coming future.

Moreover, there are rumours that Motorola is in development of Moto E (2nd Gen) as the successor to the original Moto E. The successor rumoured to have 4.5-inch qHD display and quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor along with 1GB of RAM.

Unlike the original Moto E, the Moto E (2nd Gen) is said to have 4G LTE to support high-speed data access. There are buzzes that the new smartphone would have Android Lollipop out of the box to offer the latest Android experience.

In January, Motorola announced that it sold over three million smartphones in India within ten months after its debut and is in plans to establish experience centres. The new price cut of the Moto E suggests that the company is aiming to get an even bigger sales figure this time by offering its affordable smartphone at a cheaper price in the country.
