Moto E5 Play Android Go edition unveiled


The Moto E5 Play has been an United States exclusive handset so far, but now the company is launching this device in the European and Latin American countries with Android Oreo (Go Edition) operating system which is a modified Android version for devices with low storage options. In the USA, Motorola launched the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play.

Motorola has just announced that it's expanding the availability of the Moto E5 Play that's already been released in the United States to other markets. Apart from the modern 18:9 display, there are no other upgrades, but we can find quite a few downgrades to make it cost a bit cheaper.

Moto E5 Play Android Go edition will be available from this month in various countries in Europe and Latin America starting at RRP €109. It comes with a 5.3-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio instead of 5.2-inch 16:9 aspect ratio display on the original Moto E5 Play.

The Android Go edition software is a lighter version of the Android operating system, which is designed for entry-level smartphones that carry minimum hardware, like a basic chipset and 1GB of RAM. Both the cameras come with LED flash. These are the same set of cameras offered with the earlier launched Moto E5 Play.

Like any modern phone, the handset will also have a fingerprint reader that is located inside the recessed Motorola logo on the rear.

For connectivity objective, the phone features 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a micro USB port and a 3.5 mm jack. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. The battery on the device can be similar to the original USA model of the Moto E5 Play which packs a 2800mAh battery.
