Moto e5 play Android Go edition announced, will be priced at €109

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

In the USA, Motorola launched the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play. The E5 Play and E5 Plus launched a few months back and now the E5 range has been further expanded with the Go version.

Motorola brought back the Play series this year with the Moto G6 Play and Moto E5 Play. Except for the third phone, the Moto E5 Play, the rest two phones in the E series were launched in India. While major developers have already launched Go apps for running on Android Go smartphones, they lack many features present on their repsective full-fledged apps. In the entry-level Moto E-series lineup, the company had debuted the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, and the Moto E5 Play. The phone also features a 5.3-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. While Motorola didn't release all the specifications for the handset in its press release, what is known is that the e5 play will have a 5.3-inch Max Vision display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The Android Go Edition, as you've probably guessed by its name, is based on Android Oreo Go.

Android Go is a version of Android 8.0 Oreo designed for budget smartphones, offering less storage and RAM usage, and a selection of streamlined applications. You can also expand the internal memory up to 128GB thanks to microSD card support. It is also splash proof with the p2i water repellent coating.

The Go version of the E5 play is expected to retail for roughly $128 and will go on sale from end-July in European and Latin American markets. To further sweeten the deal, the Go version is also likely to have a fingerprint sensor placed neatly below the Motorola logo on the back of the phone, just like its regular trim. It measures 147.88 x 71.2 x 9.19 mm and weighs 145 grams. As for storage, the Go version is expected to have 8 GB ROM, which is less than the regular E5 Play's 16 GB ROM.
