Moto E5 & E5 Plus processors revealed by FCC filing

Moto E5 & E5 Plus processors revealed by FCC filing
A new FCC listing pertaining to the upcoming Moto E5 line has revealed a number of processor details. It’s been known for some time now that Motorola has plans for not one, but two new Moto E5 devices, with recent leaks showing off their designs in full. Now, shortly after the lineup’s colors were also revealed, information regarding the processors has leaked via an FCC filing.

Looking at the documents, the devices are listed under their model numbers. The first, which relates to the regular Moto E5, is included under the XT1924-4 and XT1924-5 names and is listed as featuring Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 425 clocked at a speed of 1.2GHz. In addition, as is typical with this processor, the Adreno 308 GPU will accompany it. In regards to the bigger Moto E5 Plus, this device goes by the model number XT1924-3 and features a slightly more powerful processor. To be precise, Motorola looks set to include Qualcomm’s octa-core Snapdragon 430 which will also be clocked at the slightly higher speed of 1.4GHz. Furthermore, an upgraded Adreno 505 graphics processing unit will be featured inside the smartphone.
 
In regards to other details surrounding the smartphones, Motorola’s Moto E5 lineup is expected to debut with 18:9 displays, although they will be of different sizes. Another major difference is expected to be the battery size, with the smaller Moto E5 is rumored to debut with a 2,800mAh battery pack inside, while the large Plus variant is said to boast a huge 4,000mAh one. In terms of similarities, however, both devices are set to debut with Android 8.0 Oreo is set to ship straight out of the box.

Motorola is yet to announce any details in regards to when the devices will launch, but with the company set to host an event this Friday in Brazil to formally announce the Moto G6 lineup, the Chicago-based brand could also take the opportunity to announce the budget Moto E5 series.

"while the large Plus variant is said to boast a huge 4,000mAh one." That's a downgrade, my dear PA! The current Moto E4 Plus has an ENORMOUS 5,000mAh battery. In any case, I wonder when Qualcomm is going to upgrade its low-end line-up with 14nm processors? Oh well, G'Day!

s450 is already on 14nm. Maybe at the end of this year for those under s430 TBH I'm more excited about midrange going 10nm

That sux! What a ripoff! The E4 should have at least an 8-core 1.4GHz SD435 and 3GB ram. The E4 Plus should have an 8-core A53-based cpu running at 1.7GHz or faster and 4GB ram.

You want an 8 core CPU on an entry level phone? Sounds like you're asking for a bit too much.

@WAusJackBauer. Sounds like you don't know much about entry-level phones.
