We may have just gotten a glimpse of the third generation Moto E as it made its way through Bluetooth certification. The Lenovo XT1700 and XT1706 are at the very least confirmed to be Motorola devices, and their specs make them very possible suitors to take up the budget mantle of the Moto E line.

These speculations come via MobileXpose, which caught wind of the devices passing through the Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s certification process. Back in February we received confirmation from Motorola that the Moto E and Moto G were here to stay, and that in spite of Motorola’s name being removed from branding, the Moto line of products will still continue going strong under the guiding hand of Lenovo. Whether or not the company is actually better off with Lenovo at the helm remains a matter of some contention.

If these devices are indeed variants of the Moto E (2016) then the newest smartphone of this line will have a 5-inch HD display and will tout 16GB of internal memory. Under the hood is a MediaTek MT6735P SoC powered by 2GB of RAM. Although this is a budget offering, it will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow right out of the box. The cameras are 8MP and 5MP, rear and front respectively.
