In July last year, Motorola unveiled its entry-level smartphone Moto E6 which was equipped with Snapdragon 435 SoC. Now, it seems Motorola will soon announce its successor which will be dubbed as Moto E7. Last month, we reported that Motorola is preparing Moto E7 Plus with Snapdragon 460 SoC. Now, we have information regarding its vanilla variant i.e. Moto E7.
Recently, an unknown Motorola device with model XT2081-2 has been certified by FCC. When we started searching its moniker on several certifications and retailer websites, we found XT2081-2 will likely be called Moto E7. A Spanish online retailer website has listed the Moto E7 moniker with model XT2081-2. The listing also shows 4GB+64GB memory configuration with a price tag of EUR 148.07 (roughly Rs 13,000).
The FCC certification shows schematic of Moto E7’s rear panel. We can see a square-shaped camera module that houses dual camera sensors with an LED flash or triple camera sensors (where LED flash might be placed beside the camera module; see example). There is also a fingerprint sensor embedded in the Moto dimple.
The FCC listing also reveals its battery capacity as 5000 mAh (Typical). Unfortunately, not much else is known from the FCC listing, but we can expect to learn more in the coming weeks.
Separately, we have also spotted Motorola XT2081-2 (Moto E7) on TUV Rheinland Japan certification database. The listing reveals that Moto E7 will pack a 4850 mAh battery (Rated) with support for 10W charging.
It should be noted Moto E 2020 that was launched in June 2020 in the US is also known as Moto E7. Actually, before its release, it was known as Moto E7 as previous one was Moto E6. But, when Motorola released it in the US, it was under Moto E name. So, all the leaks we have seen so far were related to Moto E 2020. This is the first time we are getting information regarding the upcoming possible Moto E7. Going by its design, the upcoming Moto E7 for other markets will likely be different in terms of both specifications and design.
