Rumored Moto E5 features and their fingertip scanners secret location revealed
Depending on how you are, you may remember Motorola from its cell phone and feature phone heydays. Back then the company produced memorable devices like the M3288, Timeport 260 and later the C930. They also made great feature phones like the V360, E1070 and the V1050 before the company a few years ago. They eventually split ownership and parted ways only to end up selling their company (or should I say companies) to Google and Lenovo.
Lenovo who is now in charge of the mobile phone side of the business has released a few smartphone ranges that ended up acquiring critical acclaim. One of these smartphone ranges is the X and Z series, many folks liked the Moto X4, X Force, and the X Play. In the Z range, people favored the Moto Z itself alongside the Moto Z Play and a spinoff of Z Play the Moto Z2 Play.
But the most recent range which got people talking is the G range which has another critically acclaimed device the Moto G5 Plus. People also liked the Moto G4 Plus and gave Moto G5 and 4 ratings which were well above average. But these devices are mostly in the mid-range category when taking a look at their prices.
That in mind now comes the E series which are a very affordable bunch. But “Motorola-Lenovo” didn’t compromise on these devices quality just so they can be affordable. One review even said that for budget phones they work way better than the other more expensive devices.
One of the budget smartphones in the E range is the one we’re going to be discussing now the E5. Although we’ve seen nothing that we could say is concrete evidence that there will be an E5 besides one picture. The rest we’ve heard just rumors so what we say might differ from what the actual product will be like.
Apparently, the E5 will sport a 5 inch LCD screen with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. It may have a dual SIM capacity but maybe Motorola might opt for the usual one SIM card capacitating design. The screen could be left in the care Gorilla Glass 3 screen protection and the E5’s body could be made of aluminum or be aluminum coated.
Rumors also say that it will have a 3000 mAh removable battery which I think is neat. It might also come with a rear camera and a selfie which both might have flashlights fitted next to them. The rear cam could be around 8 megapixels and selfie camera around 5 megapixels. Oh, and there might also be a fast charging option coming with the E5!
The E5 will be running on an unspecified quad-core processor according to what we’ve heard and it could be using the Android Oreo (8.0) OS. As for storage, we heard that this device will be fitted with 2 gigs of RAM and around 30 something gigs of onboard storage. The microSD slot could support an SD card not exceeding 130 gigabytes.
Well, I guess this is the part some of us have been waiting for all along. Where on earth did they hide that fingertip scanner! We were surprised too to not see it where they’ve typically been putting it in their E series range.
They usually put this feature right at the front of the home button. This though we saw it at the disguised with the legendary “M” symbol we know Motorola for. Although some people have been a bit skeptical about a fingerprint sensor being at the back of the device. The E5 can be unlocked in other ways, which according to what we heard could be with a face detector.
This phone’s estimated going price is said to be around $100 to $150 so it could be real value for your money if the things we heard about it are true!
