These Are All The Moto Phones Motorola Is Releasing In 2018

2018 might still be a big year for Motorola with the release of the phones for the year.

Ever since Lenovo acquired Motorola, the company has not been shy about releasing new phones every year. One of Motorola’s major releases of 2017 was the Moto X4, which was released in November.

Even though the company seems to be facing some challenges now, and has reportedly laid off about half of its Chicago Engineering staff, the development does not seem to deter its phone releases of 2018. In this regard, 2018 is going to be an exciting year.

Determining what smartphone to get may sometimes be quite a difficult task, considering the many choices out there. With the leaks and rumors so far, Motorola seems to want to make the task even more difficult with the 2018 releases. That is the exciting part.

List of Moto Phones to be released in 2018

It is expected that Motorola will release three Moto G phones this year. However, the most affordable of them seems to be the Moto G6 Play. Already the Moto G6 and G6 Plus already exist.

Photos of the G6 Play were nabbed by Trendy Techz, and these have provided an insight into how the device will look.

Moto Z3/ Z3 Play

The Moto Z3 and Z3 Play will reportedly be Motorola’s highest-end and most premium phones for 2018.

It is expected that these two phones will be Motorola’s Z-series releases in 2018, with the Moto Z3 being the more powerful of the two. The Moto Z3 Play will be a slightly toned-down version of the Moto Z3; it will come with slightly lower specifications as well as a lower price tag.

Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play Rumored Specifications
Display

While the full specifications of these devices are not yet available to Smartphone Camp, one thing seems to be for sure – slimmer bezels! The Moto Z3 will come with slimmer bezels than the Moto Z3 Play, but the Moto Z3 Play will still look modern when compared to the Moto Z2 Play.

Rumor also has it that the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Plus will come with 6-inch FHD+ displays.

Security

Considering the renders, something that has gotten some attention is the lack of a physical fingerprint sensor on the devices. At the moment, it is speculated that the company may be opting for sensor underneath the display, a facial recognition system, or a combination of both.

Moto X5

The Moto X5 is expected to be the update to the Moto X4. Just like the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play, it is expected that the Moto X5 will come with a tall display and slim bezels on all sides. However, a big difference is that the Moto X5 will reportedly have a notch near the top.

Security

As with the Moto Z3 and Moto Z3 Play, the Moto X5 seems not to come with a visible fingerprint sensor. The speculation about a sensor underneath the display, or facial recognition holds for this device as well.

Moto G6/ G6 Plus

Among the three G-series devices to be released by Motorola this year are the Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus in addition to the earlier stated Moto G6 Play.

Moto E5

We do not have the exact specifications and price of the Moto E5 yet, but we expect that it will be affordable.

Moto E5 Plus

Last year, the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus proved successful for their prices. It looks the company is taking the series to an entirely new level with the E5 Plus.

According to a press render of the Moto E5 Plus shared by Evan Blass, the device is way better than the Moto E4 Plus.

  • Fingerprint sensor underneath the Moto dimple.

Differences between the Moto E4 Plus and the Moto E5 Plus

The Moto E4 Plus has a plastic back which has been ditched for a glass back in the Moto E5 Plus.

In the Moto E5 Plus, the fingerprint sensor has been moved to the back, underneath the iconic Moto dimple.

The Moto E5 Plus has two rear cameras.

Conclusion

With the quite long list of smartphones to be released by Motorola this year, the company may enjoy huge successes. The fact that the company reportedly recently laid off half its Chicago Engineering staff brought about speculations that it may be facing some serious issues, but this will likely not affect the release of the phones for 2018.
