Motorola is expected to unveil the Moto G5 and G5 Plus at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 tech show in Barcelona, but it appears that there is another device in the works with a U.S. launch expected.
If the latest reports are to be believed, Motorola is working on releasing a new phone in the U.S. other than the rumored Moto G5 and G5 Plus. Apparently, the mystery Moto phone has appeared on the country’s Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and in fact, it has been certified for use in the U.S. and Canada for that matter.

The unknown Motorola phone has the model number Moto XT1750 and has been codenamed Watson. Whether it will be the new Moto E 2017 (Moto E4) or join the Moto C family is still hard to tell at this point in time. However, the listing can confirm that the XT1750 will be a low-end device thanks to specs such as 8GB of internal storage, dual-SIM support as well as a 2350mAh battery unit.
Looking at the current market standards, this should be one of those cheap phones that are priced somewhere in the regions of $130 and below, but the question is how many are out there are still OK with using such a low-spec phone?
