This rumor, along with that "Moto X3" and the "Oneplus is merging oxygenOS and hydrogenOS" are all seemingly for dramatic affect, so that people think one thing will happen and something else happens.
Design wise, Lenovo should learn from Moto as their models have been trend setters in the market since Moto Razr times.
lenovo really needs to step up their design game. moto G designs usually stands out among the budget phones. but this? is just like ordinary $100 lenovo phones in my country.

Even today many players of smartphone manufacturers use patents from Moto, Nokia and Blackberry for their products.this includes Samsung.
Classic case of Apple and Samsung. Samsung manufacturing components for Apple products.
The moto g play seems like the moto e successor as opposed to this phone.
If it is really next MOTO E then it will be awarded as ugliest phone of the year...
It's not a Moto smartphone.
It's just Lenovo A2030. Successor of A2010 & A2020.
A2020 was Vibe C1
A2030 is Vibe C2 now. Not Moto E.
A2k & A1k series are the low cost phones from lenovo.
Well the Moto E is always their extremely budget phone. But their ThinkPad lines are top notch.
It won't be moto E because the UI is VIBEUI & moto launch their phones with stock Android.
For those crying about only 1GB RAM, remember the first generations of Moto E and G came with that little but coupled with stock Android it was still viable using Snapdragon 400/410.
Now, IF this is the new Moto E, a revamped camera is welcome, but changing to Mediatek is a failure, with how little support they always get it, they do not publish their drivers and sourcecode, and very rarely gets any update (I think Lenovo A10 Tab 2 is an exception, so maybe Lenovo can get them to get their sh*t right)
Big yawn. Complete rubbish.
Lenovo top end business models and business ThinkPad laptops brilliant but not this crap.

I think the author of the article should have done slightly more research.
XT1021 is the model number for the European Moto E 1st Gen.
