A mystery Moto series device has made its way to FCC (Federal Communications Commission), hinting that Lenovo-owned Moto (formerly known as Motorola) is preparing to launch a new smartphone.
As per the FCC listing (courtesy Roland Quandt), the new Moto device code-named Cedric comes in four variants bearing model numbers XT1670, XT1671, XT1675 and XT1676, indicating that the company may launch them depending on the specific regions' network service.
Except the signal receiver modem and single or dual SIM slots, all the four variants are said to have the same hardware. They are said to flaunt a 5.0-inch display having 77mm width and 144mm length.
It is said to have the latest Android Nougat OS with 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB internal storage and a 2,800mAh battery.
Going by the specifications, this new Moto device series seems to be a mid-range phone. There is a theory running wild on internet that this might be the 2017 Moto G5 series.
So far, Moto has not made any official comments on the Moto Cedric rumours.
