Moto Z5 with 5,000mAh battery spotted on FCC, may not launch at MWC 2020

“The Moto Z5 could be a flagship offering from the brand, with a beefy battery cell and high-end processor”

Motorola is rumoured to launch the Moto G8, G8 Power and a Moto stylus phone soon. Now the company is reportedly also working on the Moto Z5. The Moto Z5 could be a flagship offering from the brand, with a beefy battery cell and high-end processor. The Moto Z5 has allegedly been spotted on FCC listing with model number XT2055-1. The listing reveals that the handset will pack a 5,000mAh battery, which will be the most in the Moto Z series lineup. While it’s not confirmed yet, the Z5’s battery will most likely be backed by Moto’s Turbo fast charging support. Lastly, the phone is expected to support the Moto Mods range of accessories. 

Moto Z5 alleged FCC listing

Motorola is yet to confirm the Moto Z5 launch date, but unnamed insiders claim that it’ll not be revealed at the upcoming February 23rd event. The company may unveil the handset later in the year. Since this is the first time the Moto Z5 is hitting the headline, that’s all we know about the handset at the moment.

The handset is expected to be a successor to last year’s Moto Z4 smartphone. The latter, to recall, was a mid-range offering octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 ticking at its core. The phone ships with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of ROM, and a 6.4-inch full-HD+ LCD display that offers an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and screen resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels. The phone includes a waterdrop notch on the front that includes a single selfie camera of 25MP selfie shooter.

The rear camera of the Moto Z4 ships with a 48MP camera with LED flash. The handset is driven by a 3,600mAh battery and runs Android 9 Pie out of the box. The phone also dons magnetic pogo pins for Moto Mods. The Moto Z3, on the other hand, was a flagship phone with a Snapdragon 835 SoC. It will be interesting to see whether the Moto Z launched as a mid-range or high-end smartphone.
