Reports in the international media suggest this could be the launch of the Moto E, which will be an affordable mid-segment phone targetted at developing markets like India. In fact, the invite too suggests that the device will “connect more people to the world’s information”.
The Moto E is expected to have a 4.3-inch screen with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM, 5MP camera and 1,900mAh battery.
During a recent interaction with IndianExpress.com, Marcus Frost, Senior Marketing Director for Motorola Mobility EMEA & APAC, had said that their mission is “to get the mobile internet to as many consumers globally as well as in India as possible”. He had said that there “will be more to this story”.
It is expected that Motorola will stick to its partnership with Flipkart.com to sell the new device too.
