Through a blog post on the 25th of July, Motorola has launched its latest budget smartphone, the Moto E6. The device is the successor of the Moto E5 series launched last year and unlike its predecessors which were launched in a pack of four, the latest handset arrives as a solo announcement. It has been launched only in the United States as of now, with global availability expected to be announced soon by the company.
The new Moto E6 smartphone by Motorola as mentioned above is the company’s latest budget offering. The device features an all polycarbonate design which looks similar to its predecessors. It has a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1440 × 720 px. As it is a budget handset, there are significant bezels on the top and bottom of the display. There is also no physical fingerprint scanner on the Moto E6, which means users will have to rely on traditional unlocking methods; such as patterns, numerical pins and passwords to access the smartphone.
The Moto E6 runs on the slightly dated Snapdragon 435 SoC which has an Octa-core CPU and the Adreno 505 GPU. In terms of optics, the smartphone from Motorola has a single, f/2.0 aperture equipped 13MP sensor with LED flash. For selfies, an f/2.0 aperture equipped 5MP sensor is placed above the display on the front. Memory options on the device are limited to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage; the latter of which is expandable via microSD of up to 256GB in capacity.

The Moto E6 is powered by a 3000mAh battery which supports 5W charging via the bundled adapter in the box. The device runs on the latest Android 9 Pie with little customisation from the company. It will be available in two colour variants, namely Starry Black and Navy Blue. The Motorola Moto E6 will be available for sale in the US in the following weeks at a price of US$ 149 (Rs. 10,300). Unfortunately, there is no word from the company yet about the international availability of the handset.
