Moto E 2020 Price in India
While Motorola is yet to launch the Moto E 2020 in India, but it has been launched in the USA for $149.99 which when converted to Indian Rupees comes out to be ₹11,223 which puts it in the entry-level to mid-range category. Considering that the Moto E 2020 is an entry-level budget device; and most smartphone buyers in India opting to buy smartphones in such price points, Motorola should be hopefully launching the Moto E 2020 in India soon.
Moto E 2020 has a splash-proof design which may help the phone survive from occasional splashes of liquids. The power button and the volume rockers are present on the right side of the Moto E 2020; while the Dual SIM + MicroSD card slot is present on the left side. The front houses a 6.2-inch HD+ display and a front camera in a teardrop notch; while the backside houses the Dual Camera setup along with a flashlight and a fingerprint sensor which has the iconic Motorola M logo present. The top side of the device has a headphone jack and a secondary microphone present; while the bottom side houses the Micro-USB port and a single loudspeaker along with the main microphone. Moto E 2020 is only offered in a single Midnight Blue Color.
The Moto E 2020 sports a 6.2-inch HD+ display which is an IPS LCD panel display. The screen has a dpi of 271 PPI density and a screen to body ratio of 78.4% which results in some big bezels around the display. The front camera is housed in the teardrop style notch in the centre-top of the display.
The Moto E 2020 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 SoC which is an octa-core processor built on 14nm process. The processor is paired with mere 2GB of memory which is a bit less considering the Moto E 2020 runs on Android 10. This may result in the Moto E 2020 stuttering in multitasking even with a very slim near-stock Android running. There is 32GB of storage on the device which can be expanded up to 512GB via the microSD card slot provided.
The Moto E 2020 is equipped with a dual-camera setup. The main camera is a 13MP PDAF sensor; while the secondary camera is a 2MP depth sensor with a single LED flash for lighting. The rear camera offers video capture up to FHD 60fps.
The front camera on the Moto E 2020 is a 5MP sensor which can offer video capture up to FHD 30fps.
The Moto E 2020 is powered up by a 3550mAh battery which may be a bit less depending upon the usage of the device but may be adequate for an average user. There is no mention of any fast charging supported by the Moto E 2020 but considering that it is an entry-level offering by Motorola it is acceptable in this price offer.
The Moto E 2020 is an entry-level device offering all the essential features; the icing on the cake is that near-stock Android. A 2-year-old processor and a meagre 2GB of RAM is still a bummer as the Moto E 2020 may struggle to open and keep multiple apps in its memory; which makes multitasking a task in itself. The smaller battery and a screen with big bezels are also not helping the Moto E 2020 be a bit better. In conclusion, some issues are still lingering on with the Moto E lineup since a long time; and Motorola needs to quickly pay attention else Moto E may become the obsolete device in the bunch.
