Moto E3 Power with 3,500mAh battery to launch in India today

first_imgLenovo will launch the budget phone Moto E3 Power in India today on September 19. The company is in the process of sending out media invites for an event scheduled for the said date where it will most likely launch the Moto E3 Power. There have been some reports that suggest that the company may also launch the Moto E3 on the same day, but, that is something only time will tell. The media invite clearly mentions Moto E3 Power, so by the looks of it, that is all that the company may launch on September 19.The Moto E3 Power comes with a 5-inch HD IPS display with a 720p resolution, and is powered by a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735P processor coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB of inbuilt memory which is further expandable by up to 128GB via microSD card.The dualSIM phone runs Android Marshmallow and supports 4G LTE connectivity.The Moto E3 Power sports an 8-megapixel camera on the rear with LED flash and a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The phone is backed by a 3,500mAh battery and supports fast charging.Lenovo recently launched the Moto G4 Play in India for Rs 8,999. The Moto E3 Power will likely be priced lower, probably around Rs 7,000. If such be the case, then launching the Moto E3, at an even lower price would make little sense for the company as it would only crowd the market further.Lenovo announced the original Moto E3 in July and said that the phone will be available globally in stores starting from September. It is backed by a smaller 2,800mAh battery.advertisementAlso Read: Moto E3 Power with 3,500mAh battery maybe coming to India soonlast_img read more
