Motorola is expected to announce a new Android device in the coming weeks, with reports suggesting that the Moto E will be the company’s most affordable smartphone yet. A recent listing on Zauba, an Indian site that keeps tracks of imports an exports, lists a Motorola Moto E white model (model number XT 1022), which is valued at around 6,330 INR, AndroidOS reports. Converted in U.S. dollars, the Moto E’s value is of about $105, although the retail price may be a bit higher, depending on region.
Motorola has previously stated that it wants to offer buyers devices even cheaper than its best-selling Moto G handset, which was launched last year, an affordable device that quickly became popular with smartphone buyers.
The Moto E has been unofficially confirmed by recent reports from Brazil and Mexico, and it’s expected to pack a 4.3-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution, 1.2 dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, 5-megapixel camera, 1900mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. The phone is also rumored to be just 6.2mm thin.
Images for the Moto E aren’t available at this time, but Motorola is expected to announce the device next week, during a special London-based event.

UPDATE: Sister site BGR India notes that retail prices are always higher than import prices, which means that the Moto E is going to cost more than 6,330 INR when it releases. Nonetheless, the new Moto E should still have an impressive price of less than 10,000 INR, BGR India says.
