A yet to be announced Motorola-made handset has paid a visit to the US FCC for approval, which was spotted by PhoneArena. The mystery device is listen under the ID IHDT56QF1 and bears the model number 4583. It is believed to be the Moto E 2nd Gen (an upgrade to the current MOTO E) or whatever the Lenovo-owned phone maker ends up calling the device.
Sadly, the FCC doesn’t reveal very much about the mystery Moto smartphone. What is revealed is that the device supports Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, Wi-Fi hotspot, and operates on 850/1900MHz GSM bands, which is pretty standard for today’s smartphones. The listing also reveals that the device will sport a non-removable battery. What catches our attention is the smartphone’s size. It measures 66.96 x 129.9 mm. These measurements do not match any device in Motorola’s lineup, suggesting that it is an upcoming handset.
Additionally, the device does not support LTE connectivity, suggesting that it is an entry-level offering. Motorola + entry-level = Moto E follow-up. Word on the street is, the Moto E 2nd Gen will sport a 4.5-inch screen, which would definitely fit the dimensions mentioned above.
Of course, since this is all speculation, take it with a pinch of salt. However, since it has paid the FCC a visit, we reckon that Motorola will be lifting the lid on the handset soon.
