Motorola is expected to release the Moto E5 models this year as successors to the E4 series. The Moto E series is the company’s budget series and usually come with an affordable price but quality build. We expect the Moto E5 to launch alongside the E5 Plus popular tipster Evan Blass has revealed on Twitter that there is going to be an E5 Play.
The tipster also shared a couple of real-looking photos of the E5 Play. This sounds interesting because this is the first time the E series is getting a Play model. The renders show only the front view of the device and worthy of note is the lack of a front home button as found on the Moto E4. That tends to confirm speculations that the E5 would pack a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor would be unique in that it would be embedded under the Moto logo at the rear. Chinese phone maker Smartisan did something similar on the Nut Pro 2. The device also comes with rounded edges and front flash with its selfie camera.
The Moto E5 is expected to feature a 5.0-inch display on a 16:9 aspect ratio and would be equipped with a MediaTek processor, virtual button among others. Evan Bass also revealed that the E5 Play is headed for Verizon while it would be known as E5 Cruise on Cricket Wireless.
