Motorola to Unveil New Smartphone 'Priced for All' May 13

Motorola has just dished out invitations for a mystery event set to take place a couple of weeks from now. The event is scheduled for May 13 in London, England, and while the invitation didn’t give a lot of information away, Motorola did say that the device on show will be a smartphone and that it will be affordable for all.

This is Motorola's first phone post-Google (the company was purchased by Lenovo earlier this year). Rumor has it this will be the Moto E, which will be quite similar to the Moto G (pictured above) in that it will be priced extremely competitively without compromising on specs. The Moto G is the cheapest Motorola smartphone available, but the specs are anything but low-end. It might not stand up to the flagship phones out there but the beauty of the Moto G is that it doesn’t stiff customers on a budget with entry-level hardware, either.

It’s thought the Moto E will be something of a younger sibling to the Moto G and even more affordable. Rumors so far have mentioned a 4.2-inch 720p display, 1 GB of RAM and a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU. It also packs everything into an uber slim form factor that is apparently 50 percent the thickness of the already slim and sexy Moto G.

We’ll bring you the latest on the day, so stay tuned!
