Moto E4, Moto E4 Plus head to US FCC; specifications revealed

Moto E4, Moto E4 PLus

It seems that Lenovo has applied for certifications from the US FCC for its two upcoming smartphones the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus and while it awaits clearance, eager eyes have spotted the two handsets and leaked the specifications.

While the filing with the US FCC do not actually reveal the brand model number through which the handsets are sold, the model numbers give us just the step that we need to jump to conclusions. According to US FCC site, there is a model XT1762 that has been filed for certification and it is believed that it is the Moto E4. Likewise there is the model XT1773 that we believe is the Moto E4 Plus.

From the data that has been uploaded to US FCC, the Moto E4 has the same battery as last year’s Moto E3 – 2800mAh.
The purported FCC listing of the Moto E4, spotted by well-known tipster Roland Quandt, suggests that the smartphone, expected to be Moto E4, will run Android 7.0 Nougat, come with LTE support, 16GB of inbuilt storage, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth v4.2. While many other details are currently not available about the device, it is expected to house a 2800mAh battery.

As for the Moto E4 Plus, the US FCC listing was once again spotted by Roland Quandt, tipping the inclusion of a 5000mAh battery and a MediaTek SoC.

We might have to wait some more before we get further information about the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus but to help readers get a better understanding of what to expect from the smarpthones, let’s go over the specifications of their predecessor. The Moto E3, which was launched in July last year, sports a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display and is powered by a 1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6375p processor coupled with 1GB of RAM.

The Moto E3 comes with 8GB of internal storage, which is expandable via microSD card. In terms of optics, the Moto E3 features an 8-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 5-megapixel front shooter for selfies. The connectivity options offers by the Moto E3 include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, FM radio, 3G, and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India).
