Rumoured first render of the Moto E5 surfaces online


According to the rumors, the Fingerprint Scanner has been shifted to the rear department and is embedded right beneath the Moto dimple, which means a user will now be able to unlock the device by placing his finger on the Motorola logo, a new implementation it is. The images seen in the gallery below indicate the Lenovo-owned company is preparing to embrace 18:9 display panels over the course of this year as all four leaked smartphones feature such elongated screens. Probably that's what Apple too should have done on the iPhone X. Hmm? No? That may seem odd, but the roadmap for Motorola appears to include a third Moto Z3 device with a Snapdragon 845 that will arrive later on that could have a higher-res display. Even though there's no word on the specifications yet and the fingerprint scanner has been moved to the back, the images hint at a regular 16:9 display.

The other major change seems to be rounded corners on the display - a tweak that has become more popular since the launch of the LG G6. The render mentions the terms "Moto XP" and "Smart Ai" but doesn't elaborate on the matter. We also expect other connectivity features on the Moto E5 such as GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm headphone port (at the top). On the rear side, camera hump is prominent and is accompanied by a single camera lens having LED flash. Droid-Life refers to the phones pictured below as the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus. This budget-friendly phone had a 5-inch HD screen powered by a MediaTek quad-core processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. The handset will reportedly be sold in Dark Lake, Deep Indigo, and Nimbus color options which amount to dark teal, glossy black, and glossy silver colors, respectively.

Only the G6 models have detailed specs and pricing ($240 for the G6, $330 for the Plus), and there's no definitive launch window. The handset is of Gold colour variant and the company is expected to launch more options as well. It's unclear if this will add any additional functionality to the device.

Motorola's Moto G line has been one of its most successful lines of mid-ranged phones ever, so it makes sense that Lenovo and Motorola would want to follow-up last year's Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus with a Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus. If they are real, do these devices look interesting to you?
