5" Moto G Titan and 4.3" Moto E Styx leaked on a UK retailer's site, full specs and price in tow

As far as we can tell, Motorola is making a very fine recovery from its recent troubles, thanks to its robust portfolio of smartphones – we now have the high-end Moto X and DROID lines, coupled with the mid-range Moto G series, and, of course, the entry-level Moto E, which made its debut back in May last year. As can be expected, Motorola is already working on sequels, and it turns out that it has both a new Moto E and Moto G model in mind (Styx and Titan, respectively), though the only changes are the addition of an LTE radio.

How do we know? A slip by UK retailer Argus' staff, it seems, for the two new models were spotted on its website two days ago. The listings have since been taken down, but a little cache magic goes a long way, so we still have snapshots of those pages, and they're rich with details about the two devices. 

Starting with the higher-end, Moto G Titan, we're looking at a 5-inch, 768 x 1280 pixel resolution TFT LCD display (299 ppi), an unidentified quad-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 probably) with LTE, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and 8GB of microSD-expandable internal storage. Like its twin, the Moto G 2014, the Moto G Titan will also offer stereo speakers, and you can expect a near stock Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box as well. The Moto G Titan is listed with dimensions of 5.57 x 2.78 x 0.43 in (141.5 x 70.7 x 10.99 mm) and a weight of 5.47 oz (155 g). Argus had a £159.95 price tag attached to the Titan, which converts to ~$242.

As for the lower-end, Moto E Styx (a Moto E variant with LTE), we're looking at a relatively small, 4.3-inch TFT LCD display with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels (256 ppi), a similarly unnamed quad-core processor with LTE, a 5-megapixel main camera, and 8 gigs of storage (32GB more with a microSD card). The Moto E Styx won't offer stereo speakers from what we see, but stock-like Android 5.0 Lollipop is on the list. The 5.11 oz (145g) Styx measures in at 5.11 x 2.63 x 0.48 in (129.9 x 66.8 x 12.3 mm) and cost £109.95 (~$167), at least according to Argus' site.

See the cached snapshots for yourself.

Even though tech enthusiast will say it's boooring, why doesn't OEM's just do like Motorola did with close to stock Android. Then focus on the sexiest, sleekest hardware possible in their new devices. My 2013 Moto X is snappy, reliable, and has been trouble free from day one. Best phone since, sniff sniff, Palm Pre. :(

I was expecting Motorola to have a more aggressive pricing, since the original Moto E is priced at $119 and the 2014 Moto G sports a $179 price tag. Those bumps to $167 and $242 are quite significant if the only thing that changes is LTE connectivity.

I wasn't expecting more than a $30 bump for each, so I'm a bit disappointed if the price is real :'(

The original lte version had a $30 premium iirc. I'm just bummed that it's still 8 gigs of storage.

Taking the price in British Pounds and doing a simple conversion to the USA dollar is not an accurate way to predict US prices. Electronics are usually much more expensive in the UK. Advertised prices in the UK also include all taxes.

The Moto G 2014 (8GB version) is priced at 150 pounds in the UK which converts to $227. The same phone is priced at $180 in the USA. I expect the Moto G LTE (2014) to cost $175-$195 in the USA.

Make it 64-bit (SD410+SD210), add Type-C USB 3.1 connector, keep the stock UI, keep the water-repellent coating and I'm sold. The Moto G 2014 is already so close to what I want.

SD210 is still Cortex A7 = not 64 bit last I checked.

RTFA'ed thrice and just went "This better not be real" because none of this is even a qualified "sequel" at all unless if Moto is going for the sub $100 segment? They just give the Moto G 1st Gen LTE a 5" screen then call it a day? Can't be happening...

It's 2015 so all of us should say no to 8GB phones RRPs be damned.

Keep it enlarging the phoness dimensions -.-"

Simple next gen moto E. Same dimensions, more storage, flash and better processor and i'm agree with those prices

Details for moto e lte say it has 4.3in screen (same as original moto e) but the overall dimensions shown are closer to original 4.5in moto g. Seems strange.
