The Motorola Moto E4 was recently cleared by the FCC, confirming that the rumored 4000mAh battery is not a thing, instead, the budget phone will pack a 2800mAh unit.
With a rumored display screen of 5 inches and a mere resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, the 2800mAh battery would still be a massive unit on the Moto E4. A recent Geekbench listing also showed off an alleged Moto E4 handset in benchmarks, suggesting that the phone will be powered by a MediaTek MT6737 processor clocked at 1.25GHz and paired with a RAM of 2GB.
A listing on Indonesia’s certification body also revealed that the Moto E4 will ship with up to four variants that are differentiated by the RAM capacity. Where the base model will come with 1GB, the high-end variant will come with 4GB RAM.
In addition to this, the certification body also revealed that the 2017 Moto E will come in with a MediaTek MT6737M processor, a 5MP/2MP camera combination and a 2300mAh battery, smaller than what has been certified by the FCC. This variant will carry model number XT1755. The model cleared by the FCC had numbers XT1762 and XT1773, which were thought to be the Moto E4 and E4 Plus respectively.
Now, in fresh developments, the Wi-Fi Alliance has cleared a quartet of Motorola phones that also match the description of the Moto E4 as per Indonesia’s P3DN. The four, which are believed to be the four variants of the Moto E4 that were confirmed on the verification body, have model numbers XT1755, XT1756, XT1757 and XT1758.
While there’s not much the Wi-Fi Alliance listing gives us, it adds that the alleged Moto E4 handsets will all be powered by a MediaTek MT6737M, just like the XT1755 variant certified on P3DN. In addition, the budget phone will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat running the show, something that had only been confirmed by previous benchmarks.
We don’t know when Motorola is planning to release the Moto E4, but we can guess that the Moto C and Moto X 2017 might also accompany it, if not coming in at around the same time.
