Motorola took the budget segment by storm last year when it announced the Moto E smartphone in developing markets. And today, a new device has popped up over at the FCC with the ID IHDT56QF1, bearing all the markings of a successor. The device comes with the model number 4583 which is very vague and leaves much to our imagination.
There’s not much to know about this device apart from the fact that it supports GSM 850/1900MHz bands and packs the usual suite of connectivity features like Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, WiFi b/g/n etc. The mention of “permanently attached, retractable plastic tab” tells us that the device will feature a non-removable battery on the back, which isn’t surprising given what we’ve seen from Motorola over the past few months.
Rumors in the past have indicated that the second gen Moto E will feature a 4.5 inch display (up from 4.3 inches). The FCC listing doesn’t mention LTE support, thus reaffirming that this could indeed be a low end handset. We’ll keep our ear to the ground for more details on the device.
