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. If by chance you don't know anything about the Go Edition phones, these are optimized phones that are part of Google's Android Go program which promises improved performance on devices with 1GB of RAM or less. The device will come preloaded with Google's Go version of Android apps, although users will be able to install the full-blown version of the same.

It is also noteworthy that the original Moto E5 Play had debuted with 2GB of RAM, however, since the new model of the phone is going to run Android Go, it's expected that the phone will run on 1GB of RAM, given the limit for Android Go handsets. That compares to the regular E5 Play, which sports a 5.2-inch display with a traditional 16:9 aspect ratio and 720p resolution. You also get 16GB of storage, and many Go phones only have 8GB. Both the cameras come accompanied by a LED flash.

Software is not the only thing that is different about the new E5 Play. To further sweeten the deal, the Go version is also likely to have a fingerprint sensor placed neatly below the Motorola logo on the back of the phone, just like its regular trim.


Assuming the rest of the specifications are the same as the United States model of the Moto E5 Play, it could have a 2800mAh battery, water-repellent coating, Snapdragon 425/ 427 SoC.

Its connectivity options include 4G, VoLTE, 3G, HSPA+, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS/AGPS, GLONASS, Bluetooth and Micro-USB. It measures 147.88 x 71.2 x 9.19 mm and weighs 145 grams. Other specifications like the processor and RAM, have not been specified. The Moto E5 Play Android Go smartphone is priced at Euro 109 in Europe.
