Motorola Moto E5 Plus Spotted in Geekbench

Motorola Moto E5 Plus was spotted in the benchmark results which has led to the speculation that it might actually get launched along with the Moto G6 and other variants. The phone managed to score an impressive 1835 in multi-core tests and 653 in single core tests.
