Motorola E5 Plus leaks indicate a Moto X4-type smartphone with an 18:9 display and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor

Motorola is preparing to launch three new E-series smartphone with 18:9 displays. The devices expected to be launched are the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play. Motorola launched the Moto E4 in July last year and is expected to follow the same cycle of launch this year.

Images of one of the smartphones have leaked online and a report on gizmochina mentions that the E5 Plus will be the advanced model in the series and that it will also be the first smartphone from Motorola to come with an 18:9 display. The image of the smartphone shows a full-screen display with narrow bezels on the sides of the smartphone. There's no notch to be seen here, which is something of a relief.

The rear side of the device shows a ring-like camera design as seen on the Moto X4. The company has moved the fingerprint sensor on the back side of the device. The logo is embedded in the circle of the fingerprint sensor which lies below the camera ring. Previous reports suggest that the smartphone will come with a 5.5-inch display.

The design of the smartphone is different from the previous E-series smartphones by Motorola and looks more like to Moto X4 with its similar 3D-curved back design.

The report mentions that the smartphone might come with 3 GB RAM and two storage option of 32 GB and 64 GB. The primary camera will feature a 16 MP sensor with f/1.75 aperture and the secondary camera will come with an 8 MP sensor. The report also suggests that Motorola might pack in a 5,000 mAh battery.
