Moto E5 Plus to launch in India on July 10, will be Amazon exclusive

first_imgLate last week, Motorola confirmed its plans to launch the Moto E5 Plus in India. The company has been posting teasers of the phone on its social media pages, touting impressive battery life and a full-screen Max Vision display for an immersive video experience, among other things. On Monday, the company announced that the Moto E5 Plus will be unveiled on July 10 and the handset will be exclusive to Amazon India and will also be available offline via Moto Hub stores across India.The Moto E5 Plus will be the third Moto phone to launch in India this year following the Moto G6 and the Moto G6 Play. The E5-series was first unveiled in Brazil a couple of months ago alongside the Moto G6-series. Both the series bring a new design language compared to their predecessors. Notably, like the Moto G6 and G6 Play, the Moto E5 Plus also brings a full-screen display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.The upcoming Moto E5 Plus sports a 6-inch HD+ 720×1440-pixel 18:9 IPS LCD display. This means you get narrow bezels on the front with the fingerprint sensor being moved to the back embedded in the Moto logo. The phone is made to look premium like the Moto G6 with a reflective back that gives off a wavy pattern, glass front and a metal frame. Unlike the Moto G6, the back of the Moto E5 Plus is not made of glass but a glossy plastic shell.The back also sees a circular camera setup, which looks similar to the Moto G6 and the Moto X4 in design. This is not a dual setup, however, and you only get a 12-megapixel sensor with LED flash, PDAF and laser autofocus. Up front, the Moto E5 Plus gets an 8-megapixel sensor with a selfie flash.advertisementPowering the Moto E5 Plus is an octa-core Snapdragon 435 chipset, which is coupled with 3GB of RAM. There’s also 32GB of internal storage which is expandable via a microSD card up to 256GB. There’s no word yet on whether Motorola will launch a higher 4GB + 64GB variant in the Indian market. The phone is also expected to run a near stock Android Oreo out-of-the-box with some Motorola-specific features like Moto Actions and Moto Display on board.The biggest highlight of the Moto E5 Plus is its 5,000mAh battery, which will allow you to consume media on-the-go without the fear of battery dying on you too fast. The phone measures 161.9 x 75.3 x 9.35mm and weighs 200 grams thanks to the large battery inside. Connectivity options on board include a 3.5mm headphone jack, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and GPS, among other things. The variant released outside comes with a single SIM, but Motorola could bring a dual-SIM model to India on July 10.The Moto E5 Plus price in India is yet to be announced. Considering the Moto G6 and G6 Play have been priced at Rs 13,999 and Rs 11,999, respectively, we expect the E-series to be priced somewhere along the same lines considering the specs on offer.last_img read more
