Rumors of a bunch of Motorola phones coming to the market in the near future are not new. However, according to new reports the budget-friendly Moto E5 and E5 Plus smartphones have been listed on the FCC website and may launch on April 3. From what we know till now, both the Moto E5 and E5 Plus will feature fingerprint scanners at the back, below the primary camera. The fingerprint scanners will also carry Motorola’s logo etched on them. The FCC page lists the two models as XT1922-4 and XT1922-5. However, as reported by Phonearena, the FCC documentation does not reveal any specifications about the devices.
Reports suggest that Motorola will put a 4000mAh battery in both the new Moto E5 and E5 Plus smartphones. Based on the leaked image, it is also quite clear that both of these upcoming Moto phones won’t deploy the in-trend 18:9 aspect ratio display. Both phones, however, may offer a 5-inch display with on-screen navigation buttons in a regular 16:9 aspect ratio. As of now there is no information on whether this 5-inch panel will have a 1080p or 720p display.
Besides that, everything else about the phone is just speculated. Motorola is expected to provide both E5 series phones with MediaTek chipsets along with dual-SIM capabilities. Wi-Fi, GPS, and headphones jack are going to be there, but what we are not sure about whether the device will get a bump in storage and RAM size over its predecessors. We also expect the phones to launch on Android Oreo out of the box.
Motorola is also expected to launch a newly updated variant of the Moto X4 offering 6GB RAM. The device is also expected to feature newer Snapdragon 636 SoC, instead of the Snapdragon 630 being used on the current model.
