The Moto E is pitched as a replacement to internet-deficient feature phones. Research firm IDC estimates 70 per cent of phone users continue to use feature phones due to the prohibitive $337 price of the average smartphone.

The Moto E will sell for $179 in Australia when it released in “early July”. Features include a 4.3in, 540x960 resolution screen, a 1.2GHz dual-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage and support for microSD memory cards up to 32GB.

The Android smartphone will run 4.4 KitKat, support dual-SIM cards, have a 3G modem, a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1980 milliamp-hour battery.

Motorola is also launching a revised version of the Motorola Moto G. The top-of-the-range Moto G will come as a single-SIM 4G device compatible with microSD memory. Noteworthy specifications include a high definition 4.5in screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage and a 5MP rear camera.

The Moto G has become the “best-selling smartphone in Motorola’s history” since its January 2014 release, it said in the company’s statement.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
