Motorola launched the Moto G 5G Plus as an affordable 5G offering last month. The handset debuted in Europe at a starting price of €349. The company now seems to be preparing to bring the device in other markets but with a different name.
A new Motorola smartphone recently grabbed the FCC certification with model number XT2075-2 and FCC ID IHDT56ZC2. It is a 5G smartphone that features the same battery pack (LZ50) and adapter (MC-201) as the Moto G 5G Plus. Additionally, the device sold in Europe bears the model number XT2075-3. So the new Motorola smartphone is in the same series as well.
Separately, a document spotted by Dealntech reveals that the XT2075-2 will be called Motorola Edge Lite. The listing also includes the FCC ID IHDT56ZC2. This more or less confirms that the Moto G 5G Plus would be called the Motorola Edge Lite outside Europe. However, not in the US.
Noted leaker Evan Blass recently claimed in a Tweet that a Motorola phone named "One 5G" is coming to AT&T in the US. While he didn't reveal any other details, reports are that it's the US version of the Moto G 5G Plus.
Motorola has a habit of rebranding its phones in different markets and this one seems to be another example of it. As of now, the Moto One 5G and Motorola Edge Lite appear to be rebranded Moto G 5G Plus phones for the US and other international markets, respectively. We'll have to wait for an official confirmation on the same, though. Give the volume of leaks in the recent past, an announcement may not be too far off.
