T-Mobile Support Pages Leak Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play Ahead of Launch Date

T-Mobile is getting ready to release a couple of affordable smartphones real soon.

The Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play are set to be available this coming Friday, July 27th. Even though these two phones are already being sold by other U.S. carriers, T-Mobile customers will have to wait until then to get these affordable devices.

The upcoming launch of these two phones is not yet confirmed official. But the wireless network may have accidentally leaked information about these two devices by creating a support page for them prior to their launch. You can find the support pages of these phones on T-Mobile's website, along with information on their release date.

Moto E5 Plus

This phone comes with a 6-inch IPS LCD display with a 720x1440 resolution. From within, it is running on a 1.4GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor with 3GB of RAM, 32GB onboard storage, and up to 128GB memory expansion via a microSD card. The phone can take pictures with its 12-megapixel rear-facing camera or the 8-megapixel camera in front. The rear camera can also record 1080p HD videos.

Other features included in this budget-friendly smartphone include a 5000mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor. Upon release, this phone runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.

Moto E5 Play

The Moto E5 Play comes as a smaller model compared to the E5 Plus. It has a 5.2-inch LCD display with 720x1280 resolution. A 1.4GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor runs from within together with 2GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for up to 128GB memory expansion.

As a budget device, the E5 Play has an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with 1080p HD video recording, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. This phone has a 2800mAh battery, fingerprint sensor, and splash resistance. It also runs Android 8.0 Oreo upon release.

On the support pages, T-Mobile has included a blue color for the Moto E5 Plus and a grey color for the Moto E5 Play. Even though these phones have other color options available, it's still unclear whether or not these will be the only colors available.

As of this writing, there is no word on how much T-Mobile will be selling these two devices. But based on the current price of these phones in the market, T-Mobile could sell the Moto E5 Plus for $200 and the Moto E5 Play for $100.

Let's hang onto our seats until July 27th.

  1. Both E5+ and E5 Play support all of TMO LTE bands, including B71.

    There's been some question whether B71 support was a time-to-market or product-positioning (ie high-end first) issue, and we can now say it's "mostly" the first. Some flagships did get B71 early for marketing purposes, but main constraint IMO was the time it took for B71 certification.

    Of course, E5 line is carrier-branded, so full LTE support is expected. One hopes that this will carry over to next-year's G7 "universal" model, assuming E line sticks to carrier-brand only.

  2. I am glad to see that unlike Cricket Wireless, T-mobiles is selling a version of the Moto E5 Play that has the fingerprint sensor. I an interested in seeing the full specs on both of these versions.

  3. I'll pick these up when they're free on MetroPCS. $200 is an absurd price when its locked to T-Mobile. You can buy a unlocked Moto G6 for $249, so I'd expect it to be much less, around $129 and $179.

    1. I am waiting for the Plus on sale for free after $100 prepaid top up. No way I will pay $200 for it if locked to a carrier.

  4. All the market ever wanted was the unlocked/unbloated E5 Plus for $200.

    It's a shame we can't have nice things.

    1. These phones seem to have a lot LTE bands . Maybe they can work on ATT and Verizon networks after they are unlocked (y/n ?).

  5. Wish these had dual SIM cards ;(
