A device calling itself the "motorola moto e(7) plus" has appeared on Geekbench 4. Therefore, a direct replacement for the unprepossessing Moto E6 Plus may be on the way. This new putative phone has 4GB of RAM and runs on a possibly unknown Snapdragon processor.

The Motorola Moto E6 Plus launched as a rather underwhelming budget Android smartphone at IFA 2019. Now, it is possible that an upgrade to this so-called "battery wonder" is in the works. It may have been spotted on Geekbench 4 as of today (August 3, 2020).

Should this be the case, the E7 Plus seems to have 4GB of RAM - just like its predecessor - and run on Android 10 - just as its predecessor may do in some markets by now. This may strike some as a little disappointing. However, the possible new mid-ranger does exhibit an interesting new code-name as a motherboard identifier, at least.

This moniker, guam, has led to speculation that the SoC behind it may be the relatively new Snapdragon 460. However, the benchmark listing also contains characteristics that have also been associated with other, older platforms, the Snapdragon 660 included, in the past. Nevertheless, this "E7 Plus" has at least roundly outperformed its possible forebear in these same tests.
