Motorola moto e6s: affordable smartphone with dual camera
Looking for the cheapest Android smartphone possible? Then maybe the Motorola moto e6s unveiled today is something for you. In Germany, the entry-level smartphone will be available on the market from the second quarter of the year at a price of 99.99 euros in the color variants turquoise blue and red. A market launch in Switzerland is also expected.
But what do you get for less than 100 euros? Despite the fairly low price, Motorola has installed a dual camera on the back. The main sensor has a resolution of 13 megapixels. The secondary sensor, however, “only” serves for the depth information of a recording. The selfie camera has a modest resolution of 5 megapixels.
Under the hood there is otherwise a rather weak MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core SoC with a maximum clock rate of 2 GHz. The drive is supported by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage space. The internal storage space can be expanded by a further 256 GB with a microSD card without any problems and, above all, inexpensively.
The display with the waterdrop notch has a diagonal of 6.1 inches with an HD + resolution of 1560 x 720 pixels. The battery has a capacity of 3000 mAh, which should result in a good runtime in view of the equipment. Small downer: Motorola ships the moto e6s with Android 9 Pie. An update to Android 10 should not be possible in this price range.
With the Nokia C2, HMD Global today also presented a new entry-level smartphone. Technically, however, the Android Go smartphone Nokia C2 cannot keep up with the Motorola moto e6s. The bottom line is that you get a little more “smartphone” at Motorola than at HMD Global. To be fair, it has to be said that it is not yet known how much the Nokia C2 will cost.
