Motorola may be working on smartphones for the rest of 2021 or even 2022 already. This is indicated by some new leaks detected on several official databases. Most of them specify a novel model number from the OEM, although one lets a name to go with them slip.

Motorola has released a number of new Moto G-series phones in 2021. Now, signs of their possible successors have arisen already. According to some new entries reportedly found on some regulatory databases, the G30 is now in line for a replacement.

One of them comes courtesy of the Wi-Fi Alliance, which confirms the existence of a Motorola XT2173-2, which runs on Android 11 and has Wi-Fi up to the ac (or 5) standard. The Russian authority EEC corroborates this certification, and also indicates there is an XT2173-3 that might accompany it at launch.

Thailand's National Bureau of Telecommunications (NBTC) backs those findings up yet again, and also yields a name for this upcoming smartphone: the "moto g31". Therefore, it seems that what we have here is a successor for a Snapdragon 662-powered 90Hz-display device.

Some of its new certifications may confirm it is a 4G/LTE-only device, even though 5G is getting even more commonplace, even at the budget end of the smartphone spectrum. Its model number suggests that it may be a major, annual upgrade for the existing phone, although its leaks have started to emerge very early for that to be the case.

In any case, this new evidence points to the launch of a new, possibly affordable, Motorola phone with the potential for multiple options in specs such as RAM or storage. Then again, it is now up to the OEM to confirm or deny these new rumors.
