moto e styxBack in 2014, Motorola launched the Moto E handset. It was an entry-level handset aimed at customers who did not want to splurge on a high-end device, and given that we’re already in 2015, a successor to the Moto E might not seem like such a stretch. In fact a leak earlier this month revealed a possible successor in the form of the Moto E Styx.

Now thanks to the folks at Android Police, they have managed to get their hands on a purported rendering of the Moto E successor, which you can see in the image above. Based on the rendering, it looks like Motorola has decided to give the handset a slight makeover in terms of its design. However it is a bit suspicious that there is a huge gap between the top speaker grill to the display of the phone which was not present in the original Moto E.

Also gone is the second speaker grill which means there is a chance that the stereo speaker effect could have been removed from the phone. The back of the phone also reveals that there is no camera flash, a sign of low-end devices, but apart from that the rest of the phone is pretty straightforward with nothing to shout about.

We can’t tell if this rendering is the real deal, but with MWC 2015 kicking off in March, perhaps we will learn more about the Moto E’s successor then, but for now do take it all with a grain of salt.
