Two brand new Motorola devices have been spotted on FCC listings. They are identified by the codes XT1922-4 and XT1922-5, and they are rumored to be the upcoming Moto E5 and E5 Plus. Indeed, from the codes pattern, it looks like that these handsets are the two variants of the same device. According to speculations, they might even be the Plus and Play variants of the E5, as this year Motorola is expected to launch three variants of its budget device. In case you don’t know, these handsets belong to the entry-level series of Motorola, so they will be sold at budget prices.
The FCC did not reveal much about them: we only know that one of the alleged Moto E5 variants has a battery with a capacity of 4,000 mAh. This info is probably true: the predecessor of this phone in its Plus version was equipped with a huge 5,000 mAh battery, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see another battery monster. No other info has been unveiled by FCC, so for the rest of the specs, we have to rely on rumors and leaks.
Rumors have suggested that even though it will be affordable, the Moto E5 will still sport a full metal unibody design and a fingerprint reader on the back side. Just to remind you, the Moto E4 has a 5-inch display with an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Under the hood, it sports a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC with a max frequency of 1.3 GHz, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage which is possible to expand with a micro SD. The cameras have resolutions of 8 and 5 MP, and even though they are nothing special in terms of photo and video quality, the secondary sensor is equipped with a front-facing LED flash to shoot selfies in low light conditions. So, its predecessors were entry level devices and the same is expected of the upcoming models.
