FCC lists a whole slew of new Motorola model numbers
First thing to remember is that when you see a smartphone with a model number that starts with XT followed by four numbers, chances are that you're staring at a Motorola branded model. Let's take a look at some recent examples. the Motorola DROID Turbo wears model number XT1254. The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 is model number XT1585, and the Motorola Moto Z Force Droid is XT1650. You get the idea.

Recently, the FCC certified a number of new Motorola smartphone models including the XT1670, XT1671 XT1672, XT1675, XT1676 and XT1677. From the sketch used to display the label, it appears as though this phone and its variants will feature a single rear-facing camera inside a circular mounting. A flash is underneath the lens. In other words, it looks like the same camera setup found on the Moto Z models.

The XT1670 and XT1671 have 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Obviously, we are not dealing with high end handsets since most of those units will carry at least 4GB of RAM at this time. Android 7.0 is pre-installed, and a 2800mAh battery is inside. The XT1672 has similar specs, according to the FCC documents. The XT1675 and XT1676 also are similarly spec'd, but feature 16GB of internal storage. The former is a single SIM phone for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. The latter offers dual SIM capabilities for Australia. One model, the XT1677, has 50% more RAM with 3GB inside. The amount of native storage remains at 16GB.

We will keep an eye out for these model numbers, and hopefully we will be able to soon pass along some more information about these new Motorola models.

Updated E and G series?

If the price point stays low, I would certainly have no problem buying another Moto E in the future, and if it became compatible with the Moto Mods, that would just be awesome, but I don't know if I would have the money or desire to buy any mods. Maybe I'll feel differently about that once I've graduated from college. But, my existing Moto E 2nd gen. has definitely been nice for being only $29.99 from Cricket, and I have been most pleased with everything so far. It would be great if they kept the Moto E series alive and well in the US.

2GB RAM 32GB intr. 3GB RAM 16GB intr. It should be the opposite.

Yeah, that's quite the odd choice. I have to be honest though, I loved Motorola when the first Moto X came out, but these days it seems like they've lost their footing in the market and are trying something new every chance they get without listening to the consumers...

I think they've changed the strategy. They're letting sales volume speak about the demand of the public instead. If the Z/Force have sold a million flagships then it's one of the best selling flagships coming from them in a long while. Personally atm there is no sexier phone out there than the Z/Force except maybe the HTC Bolt in black, but I digress. Motorola needs to tap more markets to sell more, and needs advertising dollars for the markets they're operating in. Lenovo however needs to leave the designers the f@)% alone.
