Now the company has announced another variant of the Moto E5 Play that will run on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) out of the box.

Android Go is created to offer a more consistent experience on low-power phones like the E5 Play.

The new Moto E5 Play runs Google's optimized version of Android for budget phones. Assuming the internals are the same as the standard variant, the phone can be expected to come with either a Snapdragon 425 or the 427 SoC. While the Google Play would suggest users to go with third party light apps, the phone comes preloaded with Google Assistant Go, Google Go, Google Maps Go, Gmail Go and Youtube Go, all of which are designed by Google.

Motorola already announced the Moto E5 Play, which is a regular but low-cost Android phone. The phone also features a 5.3-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It comes with a 5.3-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio instead of 5.2-inch 16:9 aspect ratio display on the original Moto E5 Play. The inbuilt storage in the smartphone could be 16GB, expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).

After backlash, Trump says misspoke on Russian election meddling
But he says President Trump should not have confronted Putin on election interference, and the president also denied it entirely. If Putin was looking for a more pro-Moscow policies from the United States, his election interference backfired in a big way.

Android Go, also known as Android Oreo (Go edition), is a stripped-down version of Android created to run on entry-level smartphones. Both the cameras come with LED flash.

Software is not the only thing that is different about the new E5 Play. For security, there is a fingerprint sensor placed at the back, which also comes with the Moto logo embedded within it. It could pack a 2800mAh battery and water-repellent coating on its body. Besides, considering the regular E5 Play has 2 GB RAM, it wouldn't make sense for Motorola to put additional RAM in the scaled-down version.

For connectivity goal, the phone features 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a micro USB port and a 3.5 mm jack.
