Early this month, Lenovo launched a new budget LTE smartphone A6000 at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2015. Now, reports have surfaced online that its recently acquired mobile company, Motorola may soon unveil a couple of its own 4G handsets soon.
UK's online shopping portal Argos listed the unreleased Motorola phones - Moto G Titan LTE, Moto E Styx LTE for £159.95 (around $242/€210/₹14,925) and £109.95 (around $166/€144/₹10,291) respectively.
Moto G Titan is understood to be the LTE version of the second generation Moto G, where as the Moto E Styx is said to be the advanced model of Moto E. Once the word got out in the media, both the web-pages of the devices were taken down, but by then many tech-blogs had taken screen-shots of the website.
The new Moto G Titan measures 141.5x70.7x10.99mm in dimensions, but weighs 155g, which is 6g more than the current 3G model. Other key specifications such as screen resolutions, quad-core CPU and battery capacity remain same, reported GSM Arena.
On the other hand, Moto E Styx too has a couple of changes - 4G-LTE modem and the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. Everything else is same compared to the current Moto E model.
We are not sure whether Argos's goof-up was intentional or not, but now with the cat out-of-the bag, many believe Motorola will soon make the devices official.
In a related development, Motorola chief last month claimed to launch affordable 4G phones in 2015.
Rick Osterloh, in a chat with The Economic Times, said that the company will be aggressive to make it to the top three smartphone makers' chart in India by 2015 end and in that order, it has plans to introduce a value-added affordable 4G phone.
