A while back Motorola hit a rough patch, but it appears that the company is back on track. All its recently released phones, from the high-end Moto X and Droid Turbo, through the mid-range Moto G to the entry-level Moto E have achieved huge success in their class. It’s no wonder that Motorola is working on sequels. Usually new phones are first announced and then show up in stores. Once in a while, though, someone spills the beans and we get to see the device even before it goes official. That is the case with the Moto G Titan and Moto E Styx which were spotted at online retailer Argos’ website.
Motorola’s Moto G Titan and Moto E Styx Leak
The phones obviously bring some improvements but don’t expect any dramatic changes – the biggest upgrade is the addition of 4G LTE connectivity. The higher-end Moto G Titan sports a 5-inch 768×1280 screen and is powered by a quad-core processor, possibly Snapdragon 400.
Other key features of the Moto G Titan include 8GB of internal storage, microSD slot for storage expansion and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Measurements of the handset are the same as the Moto G that is 5.57 x 2.78 x 0.43 inches (141.5 x 70.7 x 10.99 mm) and it weighs 5.47 oz (155 g). The price tag read £159.95 which would be about $242 for an unlocked phone.
Priced at £109.95, or $167, the lower-end Moto E Styx features a smaller 4.3-inch display with 540×960 resolution and comes with a quad-core processor of unknown type and make. The handset is also equipped with 8GB of storage expandable up to 32GB and a 5-megapixel rear camera. The E Styx measures 5.11 x 2.63 x 0.48 inches (129.9 x 66.8 x 12.3 mm) and weighs 5.11 oz (145g). Both devices offer stereo speakers and run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.
The listings of the Moto G Titan and Moto E Styx are no longer available and so far we haven’t heard anything about official announcement. All those juicy details looked pretty legit, so it’s unlikely that it was some kind of practical joke. Since the phones showed up in online store, it clearly suggests that they are ready for launch. That said, we could expect an official word from Motorola at any moment.
