In addition to the G6 series, Motorola is also expected to bring two new contenders in the budget category. Called the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus, the smartphones have been doing the rounds of the rumor mill for quite some time now. Spotted earlier in renders, the Moto E5 Plus has again been revealed through a new set of renders by leakster Roland Quandt.
The new renders have been revealed through Quandt’s Twitter handle. The Moto E5 Plus is shown in two color options of black and gold, complete with narrow bezels and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. If we look at the overall design language, not much seems to have changed. The smartphone appears to feature the same rounded edges and a flat look. However, with the industry-wide trend of 18:9 display, the bezels have visibly narrowed from the sides.

In the past, another leakster Evan Blass had also given us a glimpse into what the E5 Plus will look like. While both the renders appear identical, one thing to notice here is that the rear camera setup appears like a dual system. However, as Blass had explained earlier, the cut out is not actually a lens. It is also worth mentioning that with today’s leaks, the total color choices can be assumed to be three – Light Blue, Black, and Gold.
Moto E5 Plus specifications
Based on past reports, the Moto E5 Plus is likely to pack a 5.8-inch LCD display. Under the hood, the device includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core SoC paired with 3GB of RAM and an internal storage of either 32GB or 64GB.
It remains to be seen if the smartphone will get a dual-camera setup or continue with the standard single lens system. The renders appear to confirm the presence of a fingerprint sensor located at the back panel, right below the camera module.

Other details about the smartphone are scarce at the moment. What is known is that the smartphone will continue to be a battery-focused smartphone with as much as 4,000mAh battery. It is likely to run Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box.
