The Moto E5 Play is a cheaper version of the Moto E5 and there are minor differences in the specs. Motorola has now announced another iteration of the handset called the Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition. As the name suggests, this device is part of Google’s Android Go program which promises improved performance on devices with 1GB of RAM or less.
Android Go is a version of Android Oreo that’s optimized for entry-level devices. Google is aiming to further expand the reach of Android in emerging markets with Android Go smartphones that come with the promise of additional optimizations for handsets with entry-level specifications. Google has even released Go versions of its popular apps to further improve the experience that users get from its core apps and services on these devices.
As far as the handset is concerned, it has a 5.84 inch 480 x 854 pixel resolution 16:9 aspect ratio display with A Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, and a 2,100mAh battery. There’s an 8 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera as well as a fingerprint sensor at the back.
Motorola has confirmed that the handset is going to cost €109 in Europe where it will be available in three colors. The company hasn’t said if this device will be sold in the United States as well but it will eventually be released in Latin America later this month.
