The Motorola "Moto G71" may launch soon following appearances in TENAA and 3C listings
The most up-to-date flagship of the Motorola Moto G series is the G100, with the G60s as the next most premium in terms of specs. Now, however, the OEM is rumored to have a new model that fits in between their 2 tiers for the first time. This is because it is rumored to be called the G71, even though there is no G70 to precede it.
It is now also thought to launch in 2021 rather than the next year on as its product name suggests. Now, this theory has gained more weight as Motorola has reportedly registered it with the 3C and TENAA authorities in China.
To be more specific, the OEM has certified a new device with the model number XT2169, said to be the G71 (code-named corfu). Should this be the case, 3C has inadvertently revealed that it has 5G, as well as 33 watt (W) charging, which is nearly top-end for this manufacturer.
According to TENAA, the tech is applied to a 4,700mAh battery in the G71. It may sustain a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display, driven by a processor with a 2.2GHz clock-speed. This less-than-concise leaked spec might imply a number of SoCs, although WHYLAB (a well-known leaker who has posted these new TENAA findings to Weibo) suggests it might be the same Snapdragon 480+ found in the new Moto G51.
On that note, new official TENAA mug-shots indicate the "G71" has a very similar rear-panel and camera-hump design to that pre-existing phone, which might mean it too has a 50MP main sensor. Therefore, it might be hoped that this potentially upcoming device does not emerge exclusive to a Chinese carrier, as the G51 has.
Nevertheless, neither of these fresh leaks can point to a concrete launch date for the putative new Moto G-series member. However, it is possible that, as WHYLAB proposes, it could even do so alongside the rumored Edge X/30 Ultra flagship, which could in turn debut in late 2021 with the latest top-end Qualcomm silicon.
