Motorola slates mystery event for May 17 in India, Moto G4 or new Moto E incoming

While we can’t be sure it has anything to do with that recent wave of “structural” changes and executive reshuffles, or even more recent warranty controversies, Motorola is clearly behind its traditional product release schedule.

There hasn’t been a single Moto-branded device unveiled thus far in 2016, despite the second-gen Moto E turning a year old back in February, and losing touch with the world’s best ultra-affordable phones of late.

But last week we received confirmation of an “exciting” announcement happening on June 9, and today, we’re seeing press invites floating around the interwebs for a separate launch event in New Delhi, India, on May 17.

Chances are the same exact gadget or gadgets will go official for different regions at the two gatherings, though it’s also possible the Moto E (3rd gen) on one hand and Moto G4 and G4 Plus on the other shall break cover individually.

Naturally, we’d expect the lower-end new E to see daylight first, but the Moto G (3rd gen) debuted in India last July, so the location of the May 17 event might suggest a different headliner… or two, with fingerprint recognition in tow, at least as far as the Moto G4 Plus is concerned, and 5.5-inch Full HD screens.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Moto E is tipped to sport a 5-inch display, most likely with 720p resolution, and then there’s the Moto X “by Lenovo” too, probably packing Snapdragon 820 power and 4GB RAM, and also due for a release before long.
