Last week, Motorola teased the launch of a big battery smartphone in India, and later on, it was confirmed that the smartphone is the Moto E5 Plus. Today, Motorola has started sending press invites for an event to be held on July 10, and a teaser released on Twitter clearly highlights the launch of the Moto E5 Plus. The Moto E5 Plus will be launched in India on July 10 and possibly, we might see the Moto E5 making its way to the country as well. The Moto E5 is already listed on the e-commerce portal Amazon from a third-party retailer, so the launch of the phone is also imminent.
The Moto E4 Plus is known for its insane battery life and the same might be applicable for the Moto E5 Plus too. Coming to the specifications of the smartphone, it has a 6-inch Max View display with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. Internally, the phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset, clubbed with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Motorola might unveil only one variant of the smartphone. Also, it’s expected that the device will debut with Snapdragon 430 chipset in India.
The phone has an 18:9 display on the front, as a result, Motorola has gone with on-screen navigation keys. The USP of the Moto E5 Plus is the 5000mAh battery it packs, which combined with the HD display will last for more than two days on a single charge. The device boots Android Oreo out of the box, but it’s expected to be Android 8.0 Oreo itself, not Android 8.1 Oreo. Cameras in the Moto E5 Plus include a single 12MP shooter on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and laser AF. Up front, the company has added an 8MP shooter for selfies and video calls. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side, while the chin of the phone houses Motorola branding.
The Moto E5 Plus is expected to be priced at Rs 10,999, thanks to the camera hardware. Also, if the device comes to India with Snapdragon 425 SoC, it will be the costliest device with the said SoC. The Moto E5, on the other hand, is expected to be priced around Rs 9,000. The smartphone will be exclusive to Amazon in the country.
