Lenovo-owned Motorola is gearing up to launch the next E-series smartphones. While Moto E5 and E5 Plus already leaked before, now the renders of another E-series smartphone named as Moto E5 Play have also surfaced online.
The renders have been leaked by popular leakster Evan Blass on his official twitter handle. As per his tweet, the Moto E5 Play might be limited for Verizon in the United States, while the phone is said to be released as Moto E5 Cruise for Cricket Wireless.

Ther are two renders of Moto E5 Play which only show the front side of the device. There is Motorola logo at the bottom of the device without any physical home button. It probably means that the Moto E5 Play will come with a fingerprint sensor at the back only. It has a single front-facing camera and an LED flash.
There is no word on the hardware specifications of the Moto E5 Play yet.
The leaked image also shows the clock widget on the Moto E5 screen mentioning date April 3. So it is expected that the smartphone might be unveiled on April 3, 2018. If this comes true, then the launch of the Moto E5 series could be earlier than that of the Moto E4 which was unveiled in June 2017. The Moto E5 phone is said to priced $120-$150 (approximately, Rs 7,500 and Rs 9,500).
Meanwhile, Moto E5 has also received Bluetooth certification. Moto E5 is listed on the certification website with three different models numbers – XT1922, XT1924 and XT1944. The listing mentions Moto E5 as “Qualcomm BT Host SW,” which means Moto E5 will be powered by Qualcomm processor, but it does not specify which chip it is.
Earlier, two Moto models were found with model No XT1922-4 and XT1922-5 on FCC website which are expected to be Moto E5 and E5 Plus respectively. The listing confirms that the phones will come with 4000 mAh battery.
