Motorola Moto E's 'price for all' listed as just £62

Motorola Moto E's 'price for all' listed as just £62Motorola's next launch event is less than a week away now, and we're expecting to see the rumoured Moto E unveiled and probably the Moto X's successor, the Moto X+1.

But it's the Moto E we're really interested in, what with Motorola's promise that it'll be “priced for all”. As for what that price actually is, how does £62.25 sound?

To be honest there's pretty much zero chance it'll actually go on sale for that little, but we're not pulling that figure out of a hat.

You see, that's the stated value per unit listed on Indian import data site Zauba for a shipment of 1300 Moto E's that arrived in the country over the weekend. The total value is listed as INR8,229,293 (£80,943) – which works out at the magic figure of INR6330, or £62.25, apiece.

In reality, we'll probably be a lot closer to the £100 mark in UK terms, depending obviously on just what goodies Moto has packed inside.

Current wisdom suggests a 4.3in display – probably 540 x 960 or 720p – and likely a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage with microSD expansion, a 5MP camera and a 1900mAh battery.

Android 4.4 KitKat is a given considering the Moto G was launched with KitKat on board last year. A final word on the Moto E's physical dimensions, which have been leaked as being 124.8 x 64.8 x 6.2mm. That's pretty skinny for an entry-level phone, considering the Moto G is a comparatively chubby 11.6mm thick.

Not so much is known about the Moto X+1, but last week saw benchmarking results leak for a Motorola XT912A, which is widely believed to be the X+1.

If so, we're looking at a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, a 5.2in 1080p display, 2GB of memory, 24GB of internal storage and a 12MP/2MP camera combo.

That's a big step up from the Moto X, which ain't bad considering it's less than a year since the X was announced.

We're looking forward to filling in all the blanks next Tuesday, May 13.

Simply for the much better processor, the Moto G seems like a better buy.
