What will Motorola show off tomorrow? Motorola

Ahead of Motorola's press event Tuesday, at least one of the devices expected to be announced made a brief appearance.

On Monday, Brazilian retailer Fast Shop published a product listing for the Moto E, a handset featuring two color options -- lemon and turquoise -- and a midrange set of specs, including a 4.3-inch display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and 4GB of onboard storage. The device also will come with 1GB of RAM and will run Android 4.4 (KitKat), according to the listing, which was quickly taken down after it was spotted.

Motorola is holding an event Tuesday in London, where it will show off a smarthphone "priced for all." Although the Fast Shop page didn't include a price, it's believed that the Moto E, which has been shown off previously around the Web, will play a central role in that announcement.

For its part, Motorola has remained tight-lipped on any plans for the Moto E, but that should change on Tuesday.

CNET has contacted Motorola for comment on the Moto E. We will update this story when we have more information.
