In a very quietly manner, Lenovo announced today the successor of the Moto E series dubbed Moto E3. This is the largest Moto E line smartphone yet, and it will be priced at £99, roughly $130. Moto E3 looks a lot like the Moto G4 Plus and it features 5-inch HD (1,280 x 720 pixels) display, it will be powered by a quad-core processor (maybe the Snapdragon 410 for LTE capability).
Other specs include a microSD card slot, 2,800 mAh non-removable battery that will last a full day, 5 and 8 mega pixels cameras, it will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow and the entire housing is water-repellent (nano coating).
Lenovo seem to have made a lot of changes since it bought Motorola from Google, including to the Moto X series flagship smartphone, which with the announcement of the Moto Z and its modular approach earlier this year, is an entirely different device.
Moto E3 will not go on sale in the UK until this fall (early September), and it will be available through Amazon, Tesco, Argos and O2.
