Motorola is now said to have 2 new Moto E-series smartphones in the works. Two well-known leakers indicate that they will continue in the usually cost-effective vein of their predecessors, with modest specs and the Go version of Android 11. Then again, they might stand out with interesting rear-panel finishes and decently large screens.

Motorola has teased and subsequently launched a bevy of Moto G phones in 2021; now, it may be the turn of the corresponding E series. According to 2 reliable leakers, they may be here soon to combine some low-tier specs with interesting looks.

Evan Blass has kicked the "late 2021 Moto E" rumors off with tales of an upcoming variant called the E20/XT2155-1, or "Aruba". Claims of a 6.5-inch HD+ display powered by a "1.6GHz" SoC and 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 13MP+2MP rear cameras, a 4000mAh battery and Android 11 are accompanied by renders of a device with a rear panel in a bluish green most like that of the newly refreshed Moto G50.

Sudanshu Ambhore has subsequently corroborated this new leak with additional details. It seems the octa-core processor in question is the Honor's latest phone is the sub-US$150, Unisoc T610-powered Play 20Unisoc T606, which has an ARM Mali-G57 GPU. The tipster believes the silicon will run the budget phone-friendly Android 11 Go out of the box.

The "Moto E20" is also now slated to come with a 5MP selfie camera for the notch seen in its renders, although it could yet do a convincing impression of a 2021 device thanks to its USB type-C port. Ambhore has also contributed renders which purport to confirm a 3.5mm jack along with the unusual honeycomb texture for the "E20's" rear panel. 

This image hints at a second color option for the supposedly imminent new Moto E variant (gray). Finally, Evan Blass also asserts there is a Moto E30 in the works; then again, nothing is known about this device, besides its putative code-name: Cyprus.
