Specs for next-generation Motorola Moto E leak?
posted by Alan F. / Mar 30, 2016, 9:43 PM
The XT1700 features a 5-inch screen with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The MediaTek MT6735P SoC is under the hood with a quad-core 1GHz CPU and the Mali-T720 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. An 8MP camera adorns the back of the unit, with a 5MP snapper in front for selfies and video chats. The XT1706 carries the same exact specs, and both phones have Android 6.0 pre-installed.
Considering the specs employed on both models, we could be looking at the third-generation Motorola Moto E. The second-generation Motorola Moto E comes with a 4.5-inch screen with a 540 x 960 qHD resolution. The Snapdragon 410 CPU is on board containing a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, and the Adreno 306 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 8GB of native storage. A 5MP camera is on back while the .3MP front-facing camera takes selfies and handles video chats.
The XT1700 and XT1706 are enough of an upgrade from the second-generation Moto E to be the next version of the entry-level Moto phone.

It's raw specs which differenciates Moto G from Moto E, not screen size.

I almost forgot about Moto, I hope the next Moto X is a beast. I absolutely love my old droid phones back when my family used VZW, I still have my moto x but sadly it has 3 circle magnet spots on it because some dumbass put magnets on it smh. I will seriously get the next Moto X if it meets my standards.

Damn, that sucks! I'm looking forward to this year's model. Last year's was awesome, but it didn't really set itself apart from the 2014 model in terms of unique features. This year I suspect that to change.

Each model last year has its own uniqueness. Moto G has water resistance, X Style has dual speakers, X Play has great battery. If only those three come into one. 1080p on X Play is better than QHD I think, if QHD only sacrifices battery life and performance.

For $129 you're getting a good enough chipset. Going with Snapdragon would have meant higher costs or reducing RAM (to offset the cost). No 720p phone with stock Marshmallow is going to be horrible with this chipset and 2Gb of RAM.
