Motorola Moto E5 leaks out – the first modern Moto phone with a rear fingerprint scanner

After the Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus of last year (both
released as attractive cheap smartphones), Lenovo and Motorola Mobility are now
seemingly planning to introduce a Moto E5 family. While official details about
this are currently missing, a render that allegedly shows a Moto E5 was just revealed

The Lumia 950 and 950 XL were the last top-tier Windows phones made by Redmond itself.
