Motorola has woken up after a rather quiet start to 2019. The brand has been pushing it with its One series phones this year, with the latest Motorola One Action offering a very good proposition for a sub-Rs 15,000 phone. The Motorola One Vision focuses on camera performance primarily. However, there's no phone from the brand under a price of Rs 10,000 at the moment. Seems that it's not going to be the case anymore as Motorola is getting ready to bring the E6 Plus to India.
Motorola has started teasing details about a new phone on its social media channels and guessing from the info, it is evident that we will get to see the Motorola E6 Plus very soon. The E6 Plus is the latest budget offering from the Lenovo-owned company that was recently shown off at the IFA Berlin. Coming in as the successor to the E5 Plus, the E6 Plus is set to be the entry-level Motorola phone you can buy.
For India, Motorola is teasing 64GB storage as standard for the phone. All the recent Motorola phones for India have been offering more storage than what their rivals offer at every price category. For example, the One Action came with 128GB storage as standard, which is double than what you get from any other phone at its price. And going by that trend, Motorola is set to offer higher storage in its class.
Going by the specifications of the global variant, the Motorola E6 Plus is an entry-level smartphone. Motorola is offering a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset with a least 2GB RAM. However, India might get the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. The E6 Plus also gets a 13-megapixel rear camera with a 2-megapixel secondary camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. It's powered by a 3000mAh battery as well.
Since Motorola is going for aggressive pricing this year, we could expect the E6 Plus to be priced less than Rs 8,000 in India. In this way, Motorola could directly challenge the Redmi 7 and Realme 3i the sub-Rs 10,000 smartphone market. The E6 plus in comparison has a modern notched display and dual cameras but Motorola could be relying on the 64GB storage as its USP.
