At this point in the film there are many leaks that we have been able to see about Motorola’s upcoming mid-range terminals. Yesterday we showed you in great detail the Final design of both the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus , so now we will focus on its hardware section. It has been, again, the US communications control agency (FCC) the one we have confirmed the performance that we can expect from these two terminals, and as expected it is quite discreet; something logical, because if we demand more power we will have to wait for the Moto G6 in its different variants.
As you may know by now, the Moto E5 will come under two variants. On the one hand we have the basic Moto E5 and it comes under the key names of XT1924-4 and XT1924-5 , while the Moto E 5 Plus has been listed as a device called XT1924-3, showing something more push, but not too much.
My partner Victor has already passed many things on the Moto E5 Plus thanks to the famous GeekBench benchmarking test, and now the FCC confirms that data and also tells us about the most basic E5.
We started with the Moto E5, which would deposit its firepower in a humble processor Snapdragon 425 , a SoC of 4 cores Cortex A-53 with a working frequency of 1.2 GHz. To be able to throw ourselves some “vice” we would have a Adreno 308 graphics , more than enough for casual games but very little for the most graphically speaking.
This chip is quite limited in the memory section, since it is only capable of handling 32 bit LPDDR3 with a maximum frequency of 667 MHz, so you can not expect large bandwidths, so engineers will have to optimize the ROM quite a lot.
Other features of the Moto E5 would pass (as a collection) for a 5.7 inch screen of unknown resolution and with 18: 9 format , a fingerprint reader on its back and a restrained battery of 2800 mAh that should work out pretty well with low-power hardware.
We are going for the Moto E5 Plus ( XT1924-3 ), and in this case the processor is confirmed Snapdragon 430, which raises its frequency to 1.4 GHz and is able to handle memory LPDDR3 RAM up to 800 MHz. For its part, the graphic section is updated with a Adreno 505 @ 450 MHz , so we would have the possibility of executing somewhat heavier games.
We finish the review of this terminal talking about its screen , which will be 5.8 inches with a presumable HD + resolution (18: 9), and that will stay on for quite a few hours thanks to a battery which according to sources, would oscillate between 4000 and 5000 mAh , quite remarkable in both cases.
Both the Moto E5 and the Moto E5 Plus will arrive with Android Oreo 8.0 virtually untouched, although we still do not know the release date of these terminals. It is possible that they will be presented at the event that the brand has organized for next Friday in Brazil to publicize the Moto G6 line, so we will not have to miss a detail of that presentation.
