Motorola is rumored to have what might be a 5G version of the Moto G Stylus (2021) in the works. It, like the rest of its series, allegedly goes by an internal code-name - Denver, in this case. The FCC has just registered a new device from its OEM, thereby possibly confirming its existence and impending launch.

Motorola has just launched the Moto G60 (and G40 Fusion) in India. This phone is the OEM's first mid-ranger with a Samsung ISOCELL HM2 108MP sensor. Given its combination with the the rest of its specs, not to mention its INR 17,999 (~US$240) starting price, it is shaping up to not merely be a Realme 8 Pro-killer but a potent Redmi Note 10-series rival as well.

Now, the latest leaks suggest that the next Moto G to launch will also have an extra selling point: not a high-end camera this time, but a stylus. It may be the OEM's first phone to pair this feature with 5G connectivity, and, moreover, come in at an affordable price-point.

This is due to rumors that the "Moto G Stylus 5G" (code-named Denver) will launch with the Snapdragon 480 SoC. The putative device is thought to have the model number XT2131, which has just been validated by the FCC.

This new official leak does confirm that the upcoming new Motorola phone is indeed 5G, although it does not offer any hint as to the platform that supplies this connectivity. It does, however, reveal that it has a 5,000mAh battery - although it charges at just 10W.

The FCC also inadvertently reveals that the Motorola XT2131 has 4 separate variants (XT2131-1, XT2131-3, XT2131-4, and XT2135-DL, which might differ in terms of internal specs) and supports FM radio among its wireless options - an increasingly rare spec in 2021.

It also shows that the "Denver" has been CE-approved as well, thereby probably confirming earlier speculation that it would launch in Europe soon. It is also now believed to become available in India, which might mean it could join the G60 and G40 Fusion on Flipkart in the near future.
