Motorola unveils first Android Go smartphone


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

Motorola made the announcement via its official blog post stating that the Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition will be launched in Europe and Latin America only.

For starters, Android Go support means the new E5 Play runs a relatively clean version of Android Oreo that includes Go variants of Google apps. The most notable difference is going to be in the software, where the Moto E5 Play will run Android Oreo (Go Edition) instead of the standard stock Android Oreo.

The device is built around the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset paired along with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

Coming to the specifications of the Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition smartphone, it features a 5.3-inch Max Vision Display with an aspect ratio of 18:9.
