Motorola launches Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition

Motorola announces E5 Play with Android Oreo

Moto E5 Play Android Go edition announced for Europe, Latin America

It's an even more basic variant, which will take advantage of the simpler Android version, the Oreo Go Edition, and was christened Moto E5 Play Android Go edition.

Android Go is created to offer a more consistent experience on low-power phones like the E5 Play. The device will come preloaded with Google's Go version of Android apps, although users will be able to install the full-blown version of the same. Assuming the internals are the same as the standard variant, the phone can be expected to come with either a Snapdragon 425 or the 427 SoC. Motorola launched Moto E5 and E5 Plus smartphones in India last week.

In this new launch, the Moto E5 Play sports a 5.2-inch display with 16:9 aspect ratio which is slightly lesser than the 5.3-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio, which we got to see in the U.S. release of the phone. While the original Moto E5 Play comes with 2GB RAM, the Android Go Edition could come with 1GB RAM. The device is priced at Euro 109 (Rs. 8,734) and will be available in European and Latin American markets starting from this month itself. It comes with 16GB on-board storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB using MicroSD Card.

The device sports an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front-facing camera, along with a fingerprint sensor on the back of its rounded chassis.

Other than that the E5 Play offers 8 MP camera and a 5 MP front camera, both of which are accompanied by flash. Motorola has not manifested itself, so it seems that some countries are without the novelty - as it was already without E5 Play.

Assuming the rest of the specifications are the same as the United States model of the Moto E5 Play, it could have a 2800mAh battery, water-repellent coating, Snapdragon 425/ 427 SoC. Connectivity-wise the phone ships with dual-SIM support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n ac, Bluetooth, GPS/A-GPS, micro USB 2.0 port, and a 3.5mm audio port.

Android Go is designed for low-end hardware, and Motorola's phone is actually more powerful than others in several ways.
