Moto E5 Plus

A new Motorola smartphone with model number Moto XT2005-3 has passed FCC and it is none other than the upcoming Motorola Moto E6 that’s coming to the US.

Lenovo-owned brand, Motorola, is getting ready to release a new smartphone which will most likely be an entry-level device. Today, we stumbled across an FCC listing which certifies a new Motorola smartphone and confirms a few important specs as is the case with FCC certifications most of the times. Nevertheless, this smartphone comes with the model number XT2005-3 and its FCC ID is IHD56YA3.

From what we can see in the documents, this smartphone supports 4G LTE and it will sport a 3000 mAh Li-ion battery. However, looking at the SW version, we came across the word “surfna” which has earlier been identified by XDA-Developers editor, Mishaal Rahman, to be Moto E6.

The FCC report also has a prototype image of the phone with the dimensions mentioned as 149 mm x 71 mm as height and width of the phone. There’s a single camera on the rear side and the diagonal dimension is 158 mm which is equal to 6.22 inches of screen size. However, the display size could be around 5.4 to 5.5 inches.

The Moto E6 will be coming to the US (unspecified carrier) and the FCC certification confirms his claim. His Twitter post also shows that the Moto E6 will be powered by a 32-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB/32 GB of internal storage. The internal storage seems to be on the low side but it is not known if this storage can be expanded.

In the camera department, the previous leak on the Mote E6 claims that this smartphone will use a 13MP f/2.0 S5K3L6 rear camera coupled with a 5 MP f/2.0 S5K5E9 front camera. On the software side, Motorola will be fitting the Android 9 Pie OS which is quite current and only behind the recently announced Android Q.

Other speculations regarding this smartphone are not certain but there are indications that it will have a 5.45-inch display with a display resolution of  720 x 1440 display. From the specs above, this device is obviously an entry-level smartphone and though specs may be disappointing (especially the 32-bit processor), this device is not expected to sell for over $150. Now that this device has been certified by FCC, it is expected that its launch will take place anytime soon.
