Motorola confirms new Android Beta Experiences program is on its way

Image source

Flagship Android phones might get all the press these days, but not everyone has $800-and-more burning a hole in their pocket. The Moto E5 will start at 149-Euro, E5 Plus at 169-Euro, and E5 Play (doesn't have a price yet).

Motorola's 2018 lineup of midrange and low-priced smartphones includes Moto G6 (6th generation Moto G) and Moto E5.

We'll go ahead and get the commonalities out of the way first. Memory-wise theres 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB storage, so youll likely need to fill the microSD slot. The Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus come with a MaxVision display which offers 18:9 aspect ratio, and when it comes to the cameras, while the Moto E5 Plus comes with laser autofocus, the Moto E5 features a phase detection autofocus. It supports fast charging and is splash-proof.

The two E5 phones will only be available through carriers in the U.S., although they could come from any carrier.

Moto Voice introduces always-on voice commands and Moto Key manages passwords for apps, websites and Windows via the fingerprint scanner. That 14-nm-fabbed SoC pairs eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores with Adreno 506 graphics. There is 32 GB of internal storage in this phone. The handset also features a 12MP+5MP dual rear camera setup alongside an 8MP front-facing camera. The diagonal measurement of the screen here is 5.9 inches. That's good news for the Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 SoC. It is powered by 2.2 GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 630 with Adreno 508 GPU.

On the front there's a 5MP selfie camera which should suffice for the occasional Snapchat and Instragram Story session.

Simmons flirted with another triple-double with 24 points, eight assists and eight rebounds. The two effective playmakers are shooting guard Dwyane Wade and center Hassan Whiteside .

The G6 reverts to the 3,000 mAh battery we had on the Moto G4 - the G5 downsized with a 2,800mAh battery on board, charged via Micro-USB as we mentioned previously. The manufacturer says that big pack is enough for a day-and-a-half of normal use. That light touch with software combined with an octa-core Snapdragon 450 keep everything moving at a respectable pace - just don't expect to do any heavy gaming on this thing. The rear cameras can record 4K 2160p videos and there's also a dual-tone dual-LED flash on the back. Motorola claims the nanocoating is actually better than the usual "IPXX" ratings on high-end smartphones, as their nanocoating doesn't become compromised if - or when - you drop the Moto G6. On the other hand, there's also the risk that they undermine the Moto G6 with a better value offering. The two chips are the same except for their modems. This LCD touchscreen has 720x1080 pixels resolution. The camera resolutions drop to 5-MP for the user-facing unit and 8-MP for the main snapper.

There is a 2800 mAh battery is in the phone.

Motorola has a long list of Moto phones either updated or ready to be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. There was no exception when I checked out the Moto G6 at a pre-brief demo event in New York City.

In the past, Motorola's Moto E line has generally been a slightly lower performer than the G series. We'll update as soon as we know more.

Unfortunately, the high-end G6 Plus will not be available in the US, with the G6 Play starting at $199 and the G6 at $249.

The Moto E5 Plus comes in Black, flash gray, blue and gold colours while the E5 Play has been launched in black, dark lake and flash gray colours.
