Motorola Announces Upgraded Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition

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. Motorola hasn't announced any plans to bring it to the Indian market, but expect it to be positioned against the Nokia 1 Android Go edition when it gets launched.

Android Go is a version of Android Oreo that's optimized for entry-level devices. It is the only smartphone in the newly launched Moto E5 series to come with 16:9 display.

Android Go, also known as Android Oreo (Go edition), is a stripped-down version of Android created to run on entry-level smartphones. It comes with 16GB on-board storage which can be further expanded up to 128GB using MicroSD Card. These are the same set of cameras offered with the earlier launched Moto E5 Play. For security, there is a fingerprint sensor placed at the back, which also comes with the Moto logo embedded within it.

Android Go is designed for low-end hardware, and Motorola's phone is actually more powerful than others in several ways. The phone has a water-repellent coating and has 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a micro USB port and a 3.5 mm jack.

The trimmed down Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition will be available starting this month in different countries across Europe and Latin America starting at Euro 109 which is roughly Rs. 8,700.

It is backed by a 2,100mAh battery which is much smaller than the 2,800mAh battery on the Moto E5 Play.
