Moto E introduced by Motorola, and it’s coming to T-Mobile and Metro


Following the recent launch of the Moto G Stylus at Metro by T-Mobile, Motorola confirmed today that it’s got another new phone headed for both T-Mo and Metro.

The Moto E is Motorola’s latest affordable Android handset. It’s got a 6.2-inch 1520×720 display and a 5MP selfie cam on its front, and around back there’s a fingerprint reader and a dual camera setup that includes a 13MP main cam and a 2MP depth camera to help add blur effects to your shots.

Packed into the Moto E’s case is an octa-core Snapdragon 632 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, and a microSD card slot. There’s a 3550mAh battery that Motorola says will get you up to 2 days of battery life on a single charge, too. And all of that is packed into a body that’s water repellent.

Other notable specs of the Moto E include a 3.5mm headphone jack and Android 10.

The Moto E will launch at both T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile, but there’s no word yet on when exactly that’ll happen. A universally unlocked model of the Moto E is available for pre-order today, June 5, and it’ll launch on June 12. Pricing is set at $149.99 and it’ll be available from Motorola as well as Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Amazon.


Also announced by Motorola today is the Moto G Fast. It’s not coming to T-Mobile or Metro like the Moto G is, but it will be available unlocked from Motorola, Best Buy, B&H, Walmart, and Amazon. Pricing for the Moto G Fast is $199.99 and it’s also available for pre-order today ahead of a launch on June 12.

The Moto G Fast has a slightly larger display than the Moto E, packing a 6.4-inch 1560×720 screen, and it’s got a Snapdragon 665 processor with 3GB of RAM. There’s 32GB of built-in storage here as well as a microSD card slot.

The triple rear camera system on the Moto G Fast includes a 16MP main sensor with f/1.7 aperture plus an 8MP ultra wide cam with 118-degree field of view and a 2MP macro camera for close-up photos. The selfie camera on the Moto G Fast is an 8MP sensor, and it’s located in a hole-punc in the upper left corner of the screen.

Motorola has given the Moto G Fast a slightly bigger 4000mAh battery that includes 10W fast charging support and is also able to get you up to 2 days of battery life on a single charge. There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack included here, too, as well as a rear fingerprint reader, water repellent case, and Android 10.

    Great price

    This $150 phone has a well guarded secret: the LTE support bands. However, Best Buy listed 1, 12, 13, 14, 17, 2, 25, 26, 3, 30, 38, 4, 41, 5, 66, 7, 71, and 8.
    I was wondering, what provider uses band 8?! And, for “universal” unlocked, why they did not activated band 20 from EU!?

    Other than storage, it’s a great affordable option. Here’s hoping new T-Mobile can pull in their flagship at some point.

    Dont understand why the Moto G Stylus isn’t coming to T-Mobile. Would’ve finally been a budget phone that’s worth its cost. Everything else T-Mobile offers under $300 is crazy outdated. Wheres the A21, A51 and A71? Why is the latest Stylo only launching a month from now? Not to mention they price gouge like crazy. Just because you offer financing does not give you the right to keep prices consistently $50 to even $200 above market. Its ridiculous they get away with this stuff.

      Because they think if they did have decent mid range phones,most of their customers would buy them instead of the over price flagship ,but the other big three have no problem bring out midrange phones,people who want the latest greatest will buy them. I just going by how Tmobile operates,once the merger is complete this summer,I wonder if Tmobile will still be selling the mid range phones Samsung has over there now. I wonder will they still be selling that Samsung laptop they have now,still waiting for Tmobile to sell widow tab.

    GG,Tmobile bringing out new phones that are already outdated before anyone buy them. Great job!!!

    For the price they’re fine. Would need to be for really light users, especially the E with only 2gb of ram. For the extra $50 the G’s 3gb would be quite a bit better for at least some multitasking, I’d think. Nice they have headphone jacks.
