Earlier in the week, Lenovo launched the generic Moto G5 series in India. Now, the company will soon be launching an entry-level Moto E4, the successor of Moto E3 Power.
Prolific twitter spy Roland Quandt has spotted an unnamed Moto device on FCC (Federal Communication Commission) page. It bears the model number: XT1762, which many believe it to be the fourth generation Moto E. Even the specifications mentioned in the website also lend weight the rumours.

FCC document says Moto XT1762 will boast a 2,800mAh battery and come with 16GB storage, LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v4.2, Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
Almost all the leaked specs look plausible, but the use of 2,800mAh cell seems odd, as the Moto E3 Power features 3,500mAh battery. Having said that, there is a possibility that the company might have deliberately reduced the battery capacity to accommodate other key components. This is a common practice among mobile-makers. In their bid to match market trends, they change device's hardware accordingly.

Probably we might see Moto E4 with a new USP this year. If we were to guess, it may come with either fingerprint sensor or an upgraded camera hardware, which seems to be flavour of this year's smartphone market.
