Smartphone manufacturer Motorola had launched the older Moto E6s smartphone in September 2019. Now, the brand has launched a new version of the E6s with a new design and some downgraded specifications.
Motorola is yet to announce the price and other details for the new model. However, we now know that the new Motorola Moto E6s will come in two colors, namely Peacock Blue and Sunrise Red. What is surprising here is the downgraded specifications and why Motorola chose to downgrade the E series phone rather than create a new budget-oriented series. Perhaps the company has a major segment-reshuffling planned for its series ahead of its new phones in 2020.
