The Moto E, which will get its big unveil at a launch event in London tomorrow [13 May], is shown alongside the Moto G in a leaked photo that illustrates it is slightly smaller than its elder cousin.

Another leaked photo shows off two of the device’s colour schemes in the shape of a yellow case and a light blue one that were accidentally leaked by a Brazilian retailer before being removed later on in the day.

The latter also confirmed the specification of the low-end smartphone that is headlined by the fact that it has dual SIM capabilities.

Display-wise it boasts a 4.3in screen with a 1,280 x 780 pixel resolution and a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz that sits alongside 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage that can be upgraded to 32GB using the microSD card slot.

It has a 1,980mAh battery, a 5-megapixel rear camera but no snapper on the front, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, and the show is run on Google Android 4.4 KitKat. The Moto E will weigh in at 140g and its dimensions come in at 124.8mm x 64.8mm x 12.3mm.

That list all but confirms the earlier specification rumours and all that remains to be confirmed is the exact price point of the Moto E, most rumours so far pegging it at £150 or a touch lower.
