Remember the Motorola device that leaked yesterday in with three variants? Those variants belong to the Moto E name. It has leaked again. The device, which is seemingly heading to Mexico (for now), is similar to the affordable Moto G; however, the specifications are slightly altered and the price tag reflects that.

For roughly 2999 pesos (or $230) without a contract, the Moto E brings a 4.3-inch 720p display with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM powered by a 1900mAh battery. Internal memory integrated is sized at 4GB and a microSD card slot looks like it will be included. Also, a 5MP camera sits on the rear of the device.
