Motorola Moto G Getting a Little Brother?

Amongst all the speculation surrounding the allegedly upcoming Motorola flagship (currently coined “X+1″ by the media), another new Moto phone is purportedly in the works.  Though this model is on the other end of the model spectrum, and is expected to reside just under the existing Moto G in terms of specs and affordability.

Currently dubbed “Moto-E” by the Italian site androidworld.it, this new model further emphasizes the “more phone for everyone” mantra brought on by the Moto G and arguably the Nexus 4 before that.  The spec comparison reads as such:

Moto-E (Moto-G)

  • Display: 4.3″ (4.5″)
  • Processor: 12.GHz dual-core (1.2 GHz quad-core)
  • RAM: 1GB (1GB)
  • Internal storage: 4GB (8GB)
  • Rear camera: 5MP (5MP)
  • Front camera: None (1.3MP)
  • Battery: 1900mAh (2070mAh)

The height and width appear almost identical; the one noticeable dimension is the depth of the device.  At 6.2mm, it appears to be almost half of the Moto G, which checks in at 11.6.  This sveltness will definitely be appealing to a lot of potential buyers.

The distribution plans for this phone is not mentioned, but it can be deduced that Motorola would have a very similar game plan; meaning pretty much worldwide.
