Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus both visit the FCC; premium model sports a 5000mAh battery
A Motorola handset sporting the model number XT1773 has received certification from the FCC. The model is believed to be the Motorola Moto E4 Plus. According to a tweet from tipster Roland Quandt, the Moto E4 will feature a MediaTek SoC instead of a Snapdragon chipset under the hood. But the biggest news about the device is the 5000mAh battery that is under the hood according to the FCC documentation. That would be the largest capacity battery ever placed inside a Motorola handset.

Earlier this week, the Motorola Moto E4 (XT1762) also was certified by the FCC, carrying a 2800mAh battery. Android 7.0 Nougat is pre-installed. The Moto E4 features 16GB of native storage, and connectivity options include 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.2, and Wi-Fi. Dual SIM capabilities are included with the phone.

The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus will be next in line for the Moto E series. Last year's models were the Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power. The former carries a 5-inch LCD display with a 720 x 1280 resolution. A MediaTek 6735P SoC powers the handset carrying a quad-core 1GHz CPU, and the Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside with 8GB of native storage. The budget model has a camera combo that measures, from back to front, 8MP and 5MP. A 2800mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed.

The Moto E3 Power has that name for a reason. It comes with a 3500mAh replaceable battery. The rest of the specs match what's found on the Moto E3 except for the 2GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage.

Returning to the Moto E4 and E4 Plus, there is no word on when we might see the pair unveiled. At this point, all we can say is that with both units already getting FCC certification, the units should soon see the light of day.

It depends on why type of smartphone you're talking about. 5000mAh battery can't be a standard for flagship phones today... It ain't possiblee, unless it's a 7-inch flagship phone, since there won't be enough space left for such huge battery capacity for a 5.5-inch with less than 8mm of thichkness, due to all the high-end hardware features being stuffed in flagship phones, which are stuffs mid-range or low-end phones typically do lack... and that leaves more space for 5000mAh battery capacity to fit in mid/low-end handsets.

we dont need huge batteries, we need phone which can last longer even if they have small batteries, did you see galaxy A series 2017 version? galaxy A3 with 2350mah has better battery life compare to to some 4000/5000mah mediatek phones. we need soc like mediatek p20 and snapdragon 625 to be used for that to be true.

Just remember, Moto E3 and E3 Power did not get updated from Marshmellow. So if you care about updates, I'd suggest you don't even bother with this phone, you be better off with a G4 Play or some other big-battery device that would get updated, with a snapdragon processor.
