The next iteration of Lenovo’s entry-level Moto E phone line will likely include two updated Android 7.1 devices: a Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus, according to the German site Winfuture.de. The smaller E4 will reportedly be an incremental upgrade to last year’s E3. It’ll have the same 5-inch HD display and 2,800 mAh battery. On the bright side, the E4 will get both a RAM and storage bump. This time around, it might include 2GB of RAM as compared to last year’s 1GB and both the E4 and E4 Plus will include 16GB of storage. The E3 only had 8GB of storage.
VentureBeat reporter Evan Blass previously leaked an image of the E4 Plus:
And SlashLeaks leaked one, too:
Blass also shared a photo of the E4 and E4 Plus side by side. You’ll notice the camera placement as a key differentiator:
Here’s what else we know about the devices:

- 5-inch 720p display (E4); 5.5-inch 720p display (E4 Plus)
- 2,800mAh battery (E4); 5,000mAh battery (E4 Plus)
