Motorola surprises everyone with its first Android Go smartphone

Moto E5 Play Android Oreo

Moto E5 Play Android Oreo

The listed of newly launched devices also include the Moto E5 Play.

As mentioned, the Moto E5 Play with Android Oreo (Go edition) will be available in European and Latin American markets starting this month.

While there is a standard version of the moto e5 play, this updated version will be made specially for Europe and Latin America, and will feature Android Go. In the USA, Motorola launched the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus and Moto E5 Play. Today, however, the company announced the so-called Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition worldwide, which is an even further downgrade, over the original Moto E5 Play. Unlike the original which has a 5.2-inch HD display, the Android Go Edition has a 5.3-inch 18:9 MaxVision display.

Android Go: What is it and which phones run it?

Under the hood, it comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Mobile Platform clocked at 1.4GHz and comes coupled with Adreno 308 GPU. Keep in mind that Android Go limits devices to 1GB of RAM, whereas the regular E5 Play features 2GB of RAM. For storage, the phone is expected to come with 16GB internal memory, with the option to expand to 128GB using a microSD card. The back's camera is 8MP strong while the 5MP camera up front also has its own flash. Both the cameras come accompanied by a LED flash.

Djokovic seeks rest and calm before final against Anderson
Anderson beat John Isner in a 6½-hour semifinal that ended at 26-24 fifth set Friday night, pushing back the start of Djokovic vs. But Anderson has little time to rest his aching body before facing either Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final.

RAM amount should also differ across E5 Play versions.

It is backed by a 2,100mAh battery which is much smaller than the 2,800mAh battery on the Moto E5 Play. The two smartphone share a similar basic design, including the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor underneath the Moto logo. It measures 147.88 x 71.2 x 9.19 mm and weighs 145 grams.

It's not easy tracking where and when each Android smartphone is released - but it's interesting watching which phone goes where.
