Moto E3 Power hauls its generous 3,500 mAh battery to India at only $120
After bizarrely launching with little to no fanfare exclusively in Hong Kong last month, Lenovo’s entry-level Moto E3 Power finally gets a slightly noisier expansion to Indian shores today.
As the not-so-subtle name suggests, you’re looking at a souped-up take on the original third-gen Motorola Moto E, sharing an overall design language with the Moto G4 Play as well, but swapping the latter’s Snapdragon 410 processor for a presumably slower, more frugal quad-core 1GHz MediaTek MT6735P.
Some budget-conscious consumers may prefer their easily pocketable 5-inch phone that way though, contributing to both a super-low price point and “all-day battery.” Of course, the actual cell is also pretty hearty, at 3,500 mAh, up from the G4 Play’s 2,800 mAh count.
Consequently, the Moto E3 Power isn’t exactly what you’d call a featherweight, tipping the scales at 153 grams, but on the bright side, it’s relatively slim… considering, with a 9.55mm profile.
The hefty battery touts rapid-charging capabilities too, and the rest of the specs aren’t half bad either for the equivalent of $120 (Rs. 8,000): 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 720p screen resolution, near-stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow, (mild) water resistance, 8/5MP cameras, 4G LTE connectivity.
