Just over a month ago, Lenovo had announced the proceeder to the second-generation Moto E called the Moto E3. But rumored had it that a second E3 handset would be accompanying the standard one called the E3 Power. This handset was initially leaked when it was spotted on Wi-Fi Alliance where some of the specs were revealed. However, not much else has surfaced about the new device, but now it looks like the handset isn’t rumored anymore. In fact, it’s actually for sale in Hong Kong.
According to PLAYfuldroid, the Moto E3 Power is now available for HKD 1,098, or around $142, in Hong Kong. This price is extremely cheap for a handset of this kind, and you’ll realize it when you check out the specs.
5.0-inch 720p HD IPS display
1.0 GHz quad-core MediaTek MTK6735P processor
16GB storage w/ microSD card expansion up to 128GB
8MP rear camera w/ 5MP front camera
Android 6.0 Marshmallow
At the moment, this smartphone already looks appealing to many, however there’s one major spec I missed that differs the Moto E3 and E3 Power in a very important department: the E3 Power includes a massive 3500mAh battery. I say massive because nearly no smartphone at this price range includes such a cell. It even features a 10W quick charger, so you’ll be able to charge your device nice and fast. So in theory, the E3 Power should get you through at least two full days of use, hence the name ‘E3 Power’. For comparison, the standard E3 includes a 2800mAh battery with no quick charge technology.
For now, it’s unclear whether the E3 Power will be making its way to other markets anytime soon, however we’ll update this if we learn anything new.
We’re expecting the Moto E3 and E3 Power to make appearances later this week at IFA 2016. Stay tuned to MBEDDED for more!
