Motorola has started sending out invites for a press event on March 10, where it will be launching the new Moto E smartphone for the Indian market. It is unclear whether the company will launch both 3G as well as 4G variants of the phone on the day, but 3G dual-SIM model seems most likely to be available initially.
Motorola has already revealed that the 3G version of the Moto E (2nd Gen) will retail for INR 6,999 in the country.
To remind you, Moto E (2nd Gen) features a 4.5-inch qHD (960x540p) display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor (S200 in 3G and S410 in 4G version). The phone runs on Android 5.0 and packs 1GB of RAM, 5MP rear camera, VGA front shooter and 2390 mAh battery.
The new Moto E also includes water-resistant coating, 8GB of internal storage and microSD card slot.
In related news, the Droid Turbo aka Moto Maxx, which was teased by Flipkart a while back, is likely to launch in India as Moto Turbo. The phone packs a 5.2-inch QHD (2560x1440p) display, 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM and 3500 mAh battery. In addition, the phone comes with 21MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, 2MP front shooter, 32/ 64GB of internal storage and Android 4.4.
