Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched the fifth iteration of its highly successful Moto E series of smartphones. Leading up to the launch, it appeared that the company would only launch the Moto G series but, the Moto E5 Plus and E5 Play have been launched at an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Moto E5 Plus

The Moto E5 Plus is the premium offering between the two Moto E series smartphones launched today. The E5 Plus runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of built-in storage which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.

The E5 Plus has a 6 inch IPS LCD display with a 1440 x 720 px resolution which translates into an 18:9 aspect ratio. It also has the Moto Display for at-a-glance info and quick replies to notifications. The Moto E5 Plus has a massive 5000 mAh battery which will charge via a micro USB port. The smartphone will come bundled with a 15W TurboPower charger which is capable of pushing up to 6 hours worth of charge into the battery in just 15 minutes.

To the back of the smartphone is a 12MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture which records 1080P videos at 30fps. To the front is an 8MP camera with an f/2.2 aperture which would also record 1080P videos.

Moto E5 Play

The Moto E5 Play reverts to the archaic 16:9 aspect ratio and probably will be the most affordable of the five smartphones launched by Motorola. The Moto E5 Play runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425/427 chipset along with 2GB RAM and 16GB of onboard storage which will be expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.

The Moto E5 Play has a 5.2 inch IPS LCD display with a 1280 x 720 px resolution. It also has the Moto Display for at-a-glance info and quick replies to notifications. The Moto E5 Play is powered by a 2800 mAh battery which, for a 5.2 inch HD display should suffice, in theory. The battery will be charged via a micro USB slot and the 3.5mm headphone jack is also present.

To the back of the smartphone is a 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture which records 1080P videos at 30fps. To the front is an 5MP camera along with a front-facing LED flash.
