Motorola is all set to introduce 2017 editions of the Moto E-series soon. Last week we reported about a Moto E4 passing the FCC. A couple of new FCC filings now reveal a Moto E4 Plus with 5,000 mAh battery and housing a MediaTek chipset.
The FCC certification reveals the Moto E4 Plus carrying XT1773 as the model number. The Moto E4 Plus in testing booted Android 7.0 Nougat. It will be the first Motorola phone to pack 5,000 mAh battery. Meanwhile the Moto E4 which was spotted earlier packs only 2,800 mAh battery inside.

Also, the Moto E4 packs a MediaTek SoC chipset inside, runs Android 7.0 Nougat, and offers 16GB of internal storage.
Both new Moto E4 series phones are the likely successors of the Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power introduced last year. It is quite possible that Moto E4 Plus might be introduced as the Moto E4 Power in India.
The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus units tested at the FCC were prototype units. So the launch can be expected only after couple of months. Both phones are expected to fall under the sub Rs 10,000 budget segment considering the prices of the Moto E3 and Moto E3 Power.
