Two Motorola handsets called the XT1762 and XT1773 have just gotten cleared by the FCC a few days apart from another. While no names have been mentioned, frequent tipster Roland Quandt suggests that the duo might just be the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus, respectively.
The XT1762 was the first to get certified by the FCC, sporting specs like 16GB of ROM, Bluetooth 4.2, dual-SIM functionality, a 2800mAh battery, 4G connectivity, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi support, and Android 7.0 Nougat. Not much else can be gleaned from the listing, but enough has been revealed to suggest that the Moto E4 will be an affordable offering like its previous variant.
As for the XT1773, the assumed Moto E4 Plus is a bit more intriguing because of its 5000mAh battery. The company’s never produced a phone with such a large battery capacity before, so it’ll be interesting to see it venture into the world of budget powerhouses.

The closest Motorola has gotten to making an entry-level battery-centric phone is the Moto E3 Power with its 3500mAh battery. There’s a chance the XT1773 is actually a sequel to the Power, but it’s too early to say for sure.
The XT1773 is also notable for having a MediaTek processor. Again, there’s limited information available about the smartphone. There’s no telling when Motorola will officially launch the phones. The Moto E3 came out in July last year, while the Moto E3 Power followed in August.
The fact that the so-called Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus have passed through the FCC hints that the two may just come out soon. We’ll keep you updated as and when more info drops in.
