Motorola XT2073-2 bags Wi-Fi certification, new budget smartphone?

Motorola is known for announcing its latest smartphones in Brazil, and recently, the brand submitted three models – XT2063 (Motorola Racer), XT2067 and XT2073 to the National Telecommunications Agency (Anatel) in Brazil. We know that “Racer” is the codename for the Motorola Edge, which will be launched as a toned-down variant of the Edge+. However, there’s no word on the other two devices. Pricebaba has now spotted the Motorola XT2073-2 on the Wi-Fi Alliance website, which hints at the imminent launch of the smartphone. Interestingly, the listing also reveals a couple of details, one of which confirms that the XT2073-2 will be a budget offering.

The Wi-Fi listing of the smartphone confirms that the XT2073-2 will boot Android 10, which would be a stock interface going by Motorola’s history. The key information here is that the XT2073 is seen sporting single-band 2.4GHz Wi-Fi support, which indicates that it could be a budget offering from the brand. However, there’s nothing else known about the handset at the moment.

Since the Motorola XT2073-2 is expected to be an affordable device, it could be part of the brand’s G-series of smartphones. Speaking of the Motorola G series, we came across leaked specifications of the Motorola G8 Power Lite recently, thanks to XDA Developers. The smartphone is speculated to come with a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC but the RAM and storage configurations are not known yet. The smartphone was also spotted on Geekbench with 4GB RAM and Android 9 Pie. Powering the smartphone will be a massive 5,000mAh battery but once again there’s no confirmation on whether it will have fast charging or not.

As of now, nothing much is known about the XT2073-2 except for the model number. However, the Wi-Fi listing suggests that the launch is imminent and we expect more information to surface in the coming weeks.
