Previously India-based smartphone maker Micromax launched its Unite 2 smartphone and Canvas Engage to compete against the hot selling Moto E smartphone. Moreover, even Lava joined the same league by launching Iris X1.
However, these all smartphones were very affordable and came with the Android KitKat flavor. But this week, apart from these, a number of smartphones also got launched. Thus today GizBot has come up with a line-up of the best ones. But these devices are not priced as liberally as the ones that were mentioned earlier.
Moreover, the line-up we have come up with today is more versatile and are priced at all possible range. There are devices from LG, Wickedleak, Xolo and Alcatel in the league.
In the mean time, also since Computex 2014 is all set to kick off next week, most of the tech firms are also ready with their sets of product. Acer has already revealed its new line-up ahead of the tech festival while Asus has started teasing theirs.
In terms of low-end smartphone with KitKat OS, Samsung is reportedly said to working on the Moto E competitor as well. And on the other hand, Motorola is also working on a new high-end smartphone which was recently leaked. It is called the Moto X+1.
