“The Moto E5 Plus is seen sporting a premium glass sandwich design”
Thanks to the leaks and rumours popping up on the Internet, we already know that Lenovo is all set to launch its fifth-generation Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus smartphones. The smaller Moto E5 has been spotted in an alleged press render, purported 3D renders, and a 360-degree video. Last month, noted tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) revealed a new render of the Moto E5 Plus, showing off a premium design. Now, the Plus variant has allegedly been spotted in a couple of real-life images.
Notably, the handset seen in the recently leaked images sports the same design as we saw earlier in the render posted by Blass. The new images show the same dual cutout design on the rear camera module. Interestingly, Blass previously claimed that the second cutout was not meant for a secondary camera but something else. Later on, another noted tipster Andri Yatim claimed that the second cutout could be used for a secondary depth sensor. However, it cannot be made out from the recent images whether it is a secondary camera or a depth sensor. However, we can see the Moto dimple integrated with a fingerprint sensor as well as the tall 18:9 display in these images. The upcoming phone will seemingly retain slightly thicker bezels than some other current flagships, as suggested by the leaked images.
Coming to other specifications, the Moto E5 Plus is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC. The RAM and storage information is not yet available for the handset. It’s also being speculated that the phone will house a beefy 5,000mAh battery. Further, the leaked render by Blass suggests the presence of a selfie flash, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. There are not many details currently known about the smartphone but we can expect the E5 Plus to be a significant improvement over its predecessor, the Moto E4 Plus (first impressions).
Lastly, we can expect the Lenovo-owned brand to launch the Moto E5 Plus alongside the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Play sometime next month. We will bring you more updates as and when they arrive, so stay tuned.
