A new low-end smartphone has reached the FCC regulatory body in the U.S. Rumours claim that it is the successor model for Moto E. Except from revealing connectivity features and dimensions of the device; the listing does not reveal any information on display and processor.

According to PhoneArena, the Motorola device that has arrived has a model number of 4583. The device measures 129.9 x 66.96 mm and has a diagonal size of 136.9 mm. One needs to be aware of the fact that the measurements revealed through FCC only talks about the actual size of the device and not the size of the display. It further states that the rear panel of the device is seal on to its body which indicates that the handset will arrive with a non-removable battery.

An interesting thing to not about the purported Moto E successor is that the device does not feature LTE connectivity. It is a clear indication that it is an entry-level budget-friendly device. However, the device is equipped with other connectivity features like Wi-Fi b/g/n along with hotspot support, v4.0 Bluetooth, GPS, and the device can be used in GSM network bands like 850/1900 MHz.

PhoneArena says that the previous rumours of the second generation Moto E revealed that the handset would feature a 4.5-inch display screen. The proportion of the device that has arrived at FCC is suitable for a 4.5-inch display. As of this writing, there is no confirmation on the device by Motorola. The source claims that the mysterious Motorola handset may not be a Moto E successor but an entirely different device.

The earlier post from GSMArena on alleged Motorola Moto E successor reports that the device will come with 4.5-inch screen supporting 540 x 960 pixel resolutions, a Snapdragon 400 chipset, 1 GB of RAM, 5 megapixel main camera that lacks a flash and it will come preloaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop. However, it states that the device supports LTE connectivity but the mysterious Moto handset lacks it. Like the original Moto E, the successor model is expected to come out with an inexpensive price tag.
