Single-SIM variant of Moto E3 (or Moto A) spotted at FCC

A new Lenovo device has been spotted at the FCC today bearing model no. A2016B31, which makes us believe it’s a variant of another Lenovo device that leaked few days ago, model no. A2016B30. It’s reported that the device is either a Moto E in its 3rd Gen, or an altogether new series starter, the Moto A.

The FCC docs also show what’s changed between A2016B30 and A2016B31. The former is a dual-SIM supporting device, while the latter is its single SIM variant. Yes, the ‘1’ at the end denotes single SIM, as the regular models will be dual-SIM. Samsung has long used ‘2’ as the last no. in model no. to denote dual-SIM variant of its Galaxy devices.

Further, the software in use right now for testing the device is reportedly a different one too — from A2016b30_ENG_S109_1606011240_MP3V1_8G_LATAM earlier, to the one meant for single-SIM, A2016b31_S_ENG_S107_160617_MP3V1_8G_LATAM.

The software’s version speaks it aloud that whatever this device is — Moto E3 or Moto A — it’s an 8GB variant.

And we’re sure it’s a Motorola device, because the docs list the manufacturer as Motorola Mobility Inc despite Lenovo doing the compliance and testing part.

Kapil still loves his Galaxy S2 i9100! No, really. And Galaxy Nexus! Need we say more what kind of guy he is? And he's also a die-hard Liverpool FC fan. Email:
