Motorola has already announced that its next smartphone will be revealed on May 13th and that it will most likely be budget-friendly. An affordable phone isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however if a recent photo of the alleged Moto E is the device in question, consider us slightly underwhelmed. Posted and removed from Motorola Mexico’s Facebook page is a photo of what is said to be Motorola’s new affordable smartphone. Pictured next to the highly praised Moto G, the Moto E (or whatever it might be) looks like a throwback to about four years ago.

The Moto G comes features a 4.5-inch display and the E looks just a little smaller, or maybe it’s just us? There’s also a small Motorola logo on the top of the handset next to what appears to be a light sensor. Oddly, it doesn’t look like this phone will have a front-facing camera. Since the handset looks like something for emerging markets, we highly doubt that it will be Motorola’s next flagship smartphone. We’re almost certain that honor is reserved for a different handset.
