“The Moto E5’s fingerprint sensor is expected to be hidden below the Moto dimple at the back”
Last year in June, Lenovo-owned Motorola unveiled the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus (first impressions) entry-level smartphones. Now, the company is gearing up to launch the successors to these devices called the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus. Ahead of the unveiling, the Moto E5’s alleged press render recently hit the interwebs. Now, the phone’s purported 3D renders and a 360-degree video based on CAD design has been leaked online by the reliable gadget tipster @OnLeaks.
The 3D renders of the Moto E5 suggest that the phone will come with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor that will be hidden below the Moto dimple. If this is true, the Moto E5 will be the first Moto series to offer a fingerprint sensor setup like it. The renders suggest that the phone will have a metallic finish and a removable back panel.
The renders and video suggest that the Moto E5 will come with a circular camera setup with a single shooter and an LED flash. The device’s power and volume rocker keys will be located on the right side. On top, the phone will feature a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microphone, and at the bottom, you will find a micro-USB port and another microphone. The handset will also come with a front-facing LED flash for brighter selfies under low light conditions. The source also mentions that the Moto E5 will measure 8.9mm around the waist.
The Moto E5 is expected to come with a 5-inch display with the standard 16:9 aspect ratio. Unfortunately, not many details about the Moto e5’s specs are available at the moment.
