According to the list of devices that are part of Motorola's Bootloader Unlock program, the Moto E's Canada, Europe, Latin America and US retail variants are currently added. Unfortunately, the company has not revealed any plans for adding more Moto E variants (available in other regions, including India), as of now.
The official bootloader unlock support for Moto E will allow third-party developers to customize the device, and users to load third-party firmware and ROMs legally.
Earlier the Moto E, with its impressive pricing, created a buzz in the Indian market and is now one of the first smartphones in the sub-Rs. 10,000 category to run Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box. The handset, much like the Moto G and Moto X, is available exclusively via online retailer Flipkart.
Motorola Moto E comes with a 4.3-inch display with a qHD (540x960 pixels) resolution, and 256ppi pixel density. Motorola is also touting the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen of the phone, along with its 'water-nano coating' which provides a measure of water resistance. It is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor along with Adreno 302 GPU alongside 1GB of RAM. The Moto E is a dual-SIM phone that supports Micro-SIM cards and an 'intelligent calling feature.' It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat.
