Moto E3 is powered by quad-core MediaTek processor, is thinner than Moto G4 Play

first_imgLenovo announced the third-generation Moto E and the Moto G4 Play in early July, but, the company remained tight-lipped about the whole spec-sheet. It was particularly silent about the processor that powers the new Moto E3 – and only mentioned it came with a 4-core CPU – leading many to believe that it carried the same processor as last year’s Moto E Gen 2 4G LTE, more precisely, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410. As it turns out, that’s not true.The Moto E3 is in fact powered by a quad-core MediaTek chipset clocked at 1GHz and aided with 2 gigs of RAM and 8GB of internal memory which is further expandable by up to 32GB via microSD card. While there’s very little difference between the Moto E3 and the Moto G4 Play from a design perspective, it has now come to light that the Moto E3 is in fact slimmer than the Moto G4 Play. While the Moto E3 measures 8.5mm, the Moto G4 Play has a thickness of 9.9mm.Also Read: Moto E3 with 4-core CPU & splashproof body launched, arrives in SeptemberThe new Moto E3 has a 5-inch 720p display with an additional coating that makes the phone splash-resistant.
