Motorola is launching an Android Oreo Go version of its E5 Play phoneJuly 15, 2018
Motorola only announced its new Moto E5 Play and E5 Plus in April, but this week the company unveiled a new version of that E5 Play that’ll run Android Oreo Go edition. It’ll include fewer pre-installed apps, as well as apps that are optimized to run on devices with less storage. It’s only available in the UK starting on July 14th and starts at £69 for pre-pay or £89 for SIM-only. (That’s between $91 and $117.) This is similar pricing to the E5 Play in the US currently.
The E5 Play is still one of the first Go devices. The first Go phone, the Alcatel 1X, launched in February. Nokia and ZTE also developed Go phones. All these phones are designed to create a more pleasant budget phone experience. The E5 includes some more premium features, including a fingerprint sensor and a 5.3-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.
