The Moto E5 could have a fingerprint reader on the back of the smartphone

The Moto E5 could have a fingerprint reader on the back of the smartphone

One of the surprises of 2017 was the solid phone Motorola produced with the Moto E4 Plus. No, it wasn't a monster in technical features – it was a low-end phone, after all – but what made it special was its autonomy: it had a 5,000 mAh battery. This, combined with a low-power MediaTek processor, made the phone, when I was testing it, last at least a full couple of days of heavy use. Perfect for those who prioritize the battery above all, and do not mind having a regular camera, or running the most demanding games.

It seems that Motorola is adding some additional improvements to the Moto E5, which could be released in April of this year. This time, it appears that Motorola has placed the fingerprint sensor on the back, right on the M with the logo. Something that, of course, we have all been waiting for Motorola to do for 4 years.

Despite having the fingerprint sensor on the back, it seems that the Moto E5 will keep huge edges, and now the Motorola logo will replace the place where we had the fingerprint reader in the past; Too bad Motorola hasn't taken advantage of moving the fingerprint sensor to the rear to further reduce edges.

More, we do not know about it, except that the Moto E5 will most likely continue with the micro USB cable instead of USB-C. Let's hope the Moto E5 maintains the 5,000 mAh battery of the previous model!
