The low-cost Android smartphone landscape has changed a great deal lately, thanks primarily to increasingly ambitious Chinese OEMs that are pushing the entry-level standards higher and higher.

Budget specialists like Huawei, Xiaomi or Meizu, with little focus on profit margins, have made it nearly impossible for Samsung, HTC, Sony or LG to compete in the sub-$100 and even sub-$200 market segments.

But does the same go for Motorola, the uncrowned champion of the uber-affordable niche in the past few years? Not with Lenovo at the helm, a larger, faster than ever yet inexpensive new Moto G out and about, plus a Moto E3 Power seemingly incoming.

We were almost ready to give up on the once oft-rumored 5-inch sequel to the early 2015-released 4.5-inch second-gen Moto E… when a Wi-Fi certification of an XT1706 caught our eye earlier today. That’s exactly the model number we expect to follow the XT15xx, and surprisingly enough, the Wi-Fi Alliance reveals the official product name as the aforementioned Moto E3 Power.

It’s etched in stone the device will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out the box (duh), and according to past benchmarks, other specs include a quad-core MediaTek SoC, 2GB RAM, and 8 and 5MP cams.
