As we get closer to Motorola’s event on May 13th, more leaks of the Moto E will continue. Today, thanks to a Brazilian store by the name of Fast Shop, we can see many of the still-rumored specs and colors of the back that will be available.
These specs have been leaked before, but it’s always nice to see them being “confirmed” over time. The Fast Shop page specifically says that their local Moto E will have a dual-sim, which is common in many emerging markets. The Moto E will also come with Android 4.4 KitKat, 4 GB of storage and have a dual-core Snapdragon chip clocked at 1.2 GHz.
The Moto E will also have a 4.3″ screen and have a 5 MP rear camera on the back with a flash. Pretty much every other spec has been leaked as well. The Moto E, at least in Brazil, will be a 3G-only phone, much like the already existing Moto G. According to the website, the Moto E does not have a GPS chip, but that could just be for the localized version.
Since the device only has 4 GB of storage, you will obviously need to expand it externally if you want to download apps, music, and other items. The Moto E will be capable of expanding up to a 32 GB microSD card, so you will get 36 GB total, though less after the OS and minor extra apps Motorola includes.
For battery technology, the capacity will be 1980mAh, with being able to possibly get up to 24 hours of mixed usage life. It’s unknown if you could swap out the battery, so we’ll have to wait for the event for that information.
But the interesting thing is those two silver lines on the top and bottom of the front of device. According to @WalterWhitedad, those are in fact front-facing speakers. If that winds up being true, then Motorola will be the second manufacturer to move to that design, after HTC.

Finally, according to Fast Shop, the Moto E will cost R$ 548,74 which converts to US$247.24 as of the time of this posting. Due to Brazil’s high tax rates on electronics not manufactured in their country, that’s probably why it’s high than the Moto G at US$180. Motorola has said this phone will be “priced for all” so we’ll have to wait and see.
If you would like to see the rest of the specs, you can head over to the official Fast Shop website for the Moto E, but it might not be up for long. With these specs and colors, would you be buying one?
