A Motorola handset sporting the model number XT1773 has received certification from the FCC. The model is believed to be the Motorola Moto E4 Plus. According to a tweet from tipster Roland Quandt, the Moto E4 will feature a MediaTek SoC instead of a Snapdragon chipset under the hood. But the biggest news about the device is the 5000mAh battery that is under the hood according to the FCC documentation. That would be the largest capacity battery ever placed inside a Motorola handset.
Earlier this week, the Motorola Moto E4 (XT1762) also was certified by the FCC, carrying a 2800mAh battery. Android 7.0 Nougat is pre-installed. The Moto E4 features 16GB of native storage, and connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, and Wi-Fi. Dual SIM capabilities are included with the phone.
The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus will be next in line for the Moto E series. Last year’s models were the Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power. The former carries a 5-inch LCD display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A MediaTek 6735P SoC powers the handset carrying a quad-core 1GHz CPU, and the Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside with 8GB of native storage. The budget model has a camera combo that measures, from back to front, 8MP and 5MP. A 2800mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.
The Moto E3 Power has that name for a reason. It comes with a 3500mAh replaceable battery. The rest of the specs match what’s found on the Moto E3 except for the 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage.
Returning to the Moto E4 and E4 Plus, there is no word on when we might see the pair unveiled. At this point, all we can say is that with both units already getting FCC certification, the units should soon see the light of day.
