Motorola has sent out media invites for its June 21 Hello Moto event. Now, ahead of the event, another Motorola device has been certified by WiFi alliance with a model number XT1902-2. 

The Wi-Fi Alliance has recently certified a smartphone from Motorola Mobility LLC. The device is carrying model number "XT1902-2" with MediaTek Helio P20 MT6757CH system-on-chip. 

Interestingly enough, the same device with the same model number "XT1902-3" was also benchmarked by Geekbench late last week. However, unlike the XT1902-3 which was identified as a Lenovo device by the benchmarking tool, the XT190-2 at hand looks to bear the Moto moniker instead, as reported by GSM Arena.

According to Android Headlines, while the both model numbers are nearly identical, it's very likely that the XT1902-2 and XT1902-3 are two variants of the same device. Exactly how these two devices will be different remains to be seen, and perhaps more significantly, only time will tell if the mysterious smartphone at hand will be released as a Lenovo or Moto smartphone

The Wi-Fi Alliance certification reveals only the model number and the OS (operating system) version - namely Android 7.1.1 Nougat - as well as the inclusion of a MediaTek MT6746CH Helio P20 SoC. Moreover, the upcoming smartphone could also make use of 4 GB of RAM, assuming that the XT1902-2 will share the same hardware characteristics with the XT1902-3 beyond the chipset. 

As of now, there's no official word in regards to the XT1902-2 or XT1902-3, however, there are speculations that the handset(s) could be a direct sequel to the Moto M, which was released in November 2016. The aforesaid device is also powered by a MediaTek system-on-chip, particularly the Helio P15 in India and the Helio P10 in other regions. That being said, the MediaTek Helio P20 will be a logical choice for a chipset powering the sequel.
