Amazon’s Prime Exclusive program is well known among the members for delivering freshly announced phones to the market at lower prices, but it happens rarely that we see phones debuting through the program. That state of things changes today as Amazon has just released the Alcatel Idol 5S. At this point the unannounced smartphone is available to Amazon customers. Along with the Idol 5S, the retailer launched two more phones: Nokia 6 and Moto E4. All three smartphones are sold unlocked and with significant discount, providing that you don’t mind ads on you lock screen.
Recently Lenovo’s Motorola has been pretty generous when it comes to launching new phones. A few weeks ago the company introduced the affordable Moto C and Moto C Plus, and two weeks ago the Moto Z2 Play had its official premiere. Today, the company is back again with another duet of smartphones. Although the Moto E4 and E4 Plus also belong to the budget line, they are a bit more expensive than the Moto C series.
The fact is, that lately you don’t have to look very hard to find great deals on smartphones. Such promotions are launched every day by carriers, retailers or mobile makers, however, usually they apply to devices that have been on the market for a while. It’s not very often that you can get for free a handset that was announced merely three weeks before. And yet it sometimes happens. It just happened thanks to Motorola which offers free Moto E with Moto X purchase.
Another day, another carrier adds the Moto E (2nd Gen.) to its portfolio. Announced two weeks ago, the upgraded version of Motorola’s cheapest phone is already available through Sprint and its pre-paid networks, Boost and Virgin Mobile. Starting today, there is one more place you can grab the handset from. The Moto E 2015 Edition for Cricket Wireless is now on sale via carrier’s online store for $129.99 without contract.
At the end of February Motorola has made official a follow-up to its very affordable and successful Moto E smartphone. Called simply Moto E 2nd Generation, the phone arrived in the US a couple of days ago, however, it could be purchased only SIM-lock free model directly from manufacturer’s online store. Starting today, customers will have more options to grab the device on CDMA network as it’s now available for Boost Mobile and Sprint Prepaid customers.
Most of you are probably still hyped about the recently announced HTC One M9 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 and it’s pretty understandable since both devices are simply Android’s flagship smartphones, but let’s steer our thoughts in a different direction for a moment. Remember the Motorola Moto E (2nd Gen) that went official last week? Congratulations if you do after all the announcements from MWC event we have been bombarding you this week. If you don’t, certainly no one will blame you. Either way, you will be happy to know that the handset is now available for purchase in the US via the manufacturer’s online store.
As the year progresses, successors of devices released in 2014 go official bringing much wanted upgrades to the table. A few weeks ago Motorola launched the LTE version of the Moto G; however, it wasn’t the only phone made by Motorola last year. In 2014 the company also started selling the Moto E – a very affordable entry-level handset aimed at less demanding audience. Since the device is already nine months old, we could expect a follow-up coming soon. Sure enough, earlier today Motorola revealed the new Moto E 2015 featuring bigger screen, more speed, and which is still cheap.
It is sort of a tradition for manufacturers to release more affordable versions of flagship phones. The Moto E was introduced last year in May as the cheapest and consequently the most low-end member of the Moto family. Even though it doesn’t offer any ground-breaking solutions, the Moto E managed to win the hearts of thousands of customers. In December, only a few months after the device hit the stores, it came to our attention that Motorola might be working on a sequel. It seems that it was more than just a rumor. Photos of Motorola’s Moto E 2nd generation made the rounds online suggesting that the phone might be almost ready for launch.
Most smartphone makers keep an annual upgrade schedule. Truth be told, it’s pretty convenient to know how to plan your budget to include a new handset. On the other hand, why wait a whole year for a follow-up to a great phone when you can have it earlier? Apparently, that’s Motorola’s line of thinking as the company is gearing up to launch the second generation Moto E dubbed as Moto E2.
The Republic Wireless announced on 17th September that it will soon offer Motorola’s new smartphone which will act as a great home phone replacement and the flip phone killer, the Moto E. With last year’s flagship Moto X and mid-range Moto G, Republic Wireless is going for the Motorola hat trick, the American hybrid MVNO is now planning on presenting the low-end Moto E to its customers. The Moto E is that phone which is great for the kids or other members in the family as their first smartphone because it is a budget friendly price. People can now have power and performance at a cheap price without compromise.
Didn’t we tell you yesterday that the Moto E would be announced today? Yes, We did and, sure enough, Motorola’s latest smartphone went official just a few hours ago. As expected, the device is super affordable, offers not bad specs and doesn’t require contract. Priced at just $129, the Moto E is a sweet offering for users looking for a brand new phone at low cost without having to resort to long-term agreements. Interested in picking one up? No problem, the handset is already available for pre-order from Motorola’s website.
Even though smartphone makers do what they can to hide their upcoming devices from the curious eyes of leak-hunters, resourceful enthusiasts always find a way to uncover some juicy details. Sometimes other parties come to aid. That was the case with the soon-to-be-unveiled Motorola Moto E. The phone is expected to go official on May 13th during an event in London, however, over the weekend a Brazilian online retailer Fast Shop accidentally spilled the beans on the device revealing images and specs ahead of official announcement.
