The Motorola Moto E20 allegedly shows up on Geekbench with a Unisoc processor

Motorola is currently said to have a couple of new Moto E-series smartphones in the works. One of them may have found its way onto Geekbench, in a new leak that purports to confirm numerous rumored specs for the device. They include SoC and RAM profiles that are emphatically in the lowest of market tiers, especially for 2021.

Motorola is now slated to launch the Moto E20 sometime soon. According to its latest leaks, it might emerge as one of the cheapest phones sold by the OEM in 2021, with distinctly retrograde amounts of RAM, internal storage space and processing speed. Its latest tip might confirm those early indications.

Its alleged new listing on Geekbench 5 admittedly does not use its supposed product name outright (as Motorola devices that leak onto this platform often do). Then again, the candidate phone is doing a good impression of the same, going by the E20's reported code-name Aruba instead.

The device proceeds to exhibit a carbon-copy of an earlier spec list for the rumored Moto E variant: it runs Android 11 and has just 2GB of RAM. It also once again specifies that its processor is from Unisoc. This new leak could have provided more insight into this alleged T606 SoC; however, all Geekbench reveals about the silicon is that it has 8 cores, all of which apparently go at 1.61GHz.

Therefore, this new Moto E leak chimes with the last, and elaborates slightly with the benchmarking scores one might expect of such a device. On the other hand, while the putative E20 may fall down in this area, it might have more appeal in terms of its looks and other attributes.

Its current renders depict it as a phone that will stand out with the unusual honeycomb pattern on its (probably plastic) rear cover, which also may be graced with a distinctive Motorola-branded divot. It may also gain some orders from fans of cost-effective handsets with 3.5mm jacks.

The Moto E20 is also thought to be joined by the E30 (or Cyprus) on its launch; however, further signs of this possibly slightly higher-end smartphone have yet to emerge.
