Seven Moto devices receive their Wi-Fi certification; all seven are powered by the MT6737 SoC
Seven Moto handsets, each powered by the MediaTek MT6737 chipset and running Android 7.0 or 7.1.1, have received their Wi-Fi certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance. The seven model numbers include the XT1770, XT1772, XT1773, XT1724, XT1725, XT1726 and XT1721. The MediaTek 6737 SoC is a power sipping chip that uses less than half the usual amount of energy to run GPS based features. It also slices energy use by 33% for gaming and video. It is equipped with a quad-core CPU and the Mali-T720 MP GPU. The chip supports 3GB of LPDDR3 and LPDDR2 RAM.

So as you can see, these seven models are not going to be high-end flagship phones. Still, some of the units could have some interesting features. For example, the XT1773 is the Moto E4 Plus. The device, which has already been certified by the FCC, is equipped with a 5000mAh battery. That is the largest capacity cell ever placed inside a Motorola handset. The Moto E4 could also be among the models listed. This would be considered a low to mid range device with a 5-inch screen carrying a 720 x 1280 resolution. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of expandable native storage. An 8MP camera is in back with a 5MP front-facing shooter. Unlike the massive battery that powers the Moto E4 Plus, the E4 relies on a 2800mAh juicer.

Other Moto handsets that should be released soon are the Moto C and Moto C Plus. These will be the entry-level Moto models for 2017. In fact, these will be the cheapest phones ever offered by Motorola. The Moto C features a 5-inch display with a 480 x 854 resolution (FWVA). The last time a Motorola handset had such a low resolution screen was 2010 when they were considered decent. Three models, the Motorola DROID 2, the Motorola DEFY and the Motorola DROID X all carried the same resolution on their respective screens.

The Moto C has 1GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of native storage. A 5MP camera adorns the back of the unit and a 2MP front-facing snapper is used for selfies and video chats. A 2350mAh battery is aboard. The Moto C Plus will have the same specs except for a higher 720 x 1280 resolution on the display. The rear-facing camera uses a higher 8MP sensor, and a version with 2GB of RAM is available. A much larger 4000mAh battery keeps the lights on for a long time.

The XT1772 receives its Wi-Fi certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. That was one of seven Moto models that received its certification today

All those models will be sold in different markets. So, some markets will have a model and another market will not have it.
