After the two months of rumors, Motorola finally unveiled the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus in India at a starting price of Rs 9,999. As per the rumors, only the Moto E5 Plus was about to launch but the Moto E5 also came along.

This time only a single variant of the Moto E5 has been launched at a price of Rs 9,999. The Moto E5 is already available on Amazon India, Moto Hub offline stores, and leading retail stores across the country.

On the other hand, Moto E5 Plus will be up on sale exclusively on Amazon India and Moto Hub Stores. Moto E5 Plus can be purchased on 11th July, starting at Rs 11,999 (midnight of 10th July). There are two color options as of now – Black and Fine Gold.

Moto E5 Specifications

The Moto E5 features a 5.7-inch IPS LCD Max Vision display, with an 18:9 display(720p resolution). This is the first time for the Moto E series to feature a taller screen. The phone is powered by the Snapdragon 425, coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage – which is expandable up to 256GB via microSD card slot.


Talking about the cameras, it has a single 13MP camera with a f/2.0 aperture primary camera and a 5MP selfie shooter that should be decent enough for casual users. The primary & secondary cameras both are capable of shooting video up to 1080p resolution at 30fps.

The Moto E5 also houses a massive 4000 mAh battery supported by fast charging technology over the USB Type-C connector. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the back of the phone and is crafted by Moto logo.

Moto E5 Plus Specifications

Moto has redesigned the smartphone and it features a sleek design with some wave pattern on the back.

Moto E5 Plus features a Snapdragon 425 chipset and Adreno 308 for graphics with two types of RAM+storage combination variants:

  • 2GB RAM + 16GB storage
  • 3GB RAM + 32GB storage


The device features the same display technology as Moto E5: a 6-inch HD+ IPS Max Vision. The highlight of the phone is that Moto has given it an enormous battery of 5,000 mAh.

The Moto E5 also sports a single 12MP rear camera but looking at the rear of the phone it seems like it features a dual-lens setup but unfortunately, the second cut-out in the camera module sports the laser auto-focus that’ll help to focus faster and capture better photos. The front-facing camera is an 8MP shooter.

The fingerprint scanner located on the back with the same Moto crafted design as on Moto E5.
