In keeping up with launching affordable devices aimed at the mass market, Lenovo-owned Motorola has unveiled its first Android Go smartphone - the Moto E5 Play Android Go edition.

The new E5 Play will launch in Europe and Latin America sometime in July.

The Moto E5 Play Android Go smartphone comes with a 5.34-inch 18:9 display with FWVGA+ (960 x 480 pixels) resolution. It will feature 16GB of inbuilt storage space that can be further upgraded to a maximum of 128GB with a micro-SD card.

The Moto E5 Play Android Go Edition based device has been announced in many countries of Europe and Latin America and will be made available for purchase later this month at a price tag of Euro 109 (Rs 8,700 approximately). While the original Moto E5 Play comes with 2GB RAM, the Android Go Edition could come with 1GB RAM. As for its camera, it will have an 8MP shooter on the back, which the company claims will be able to focus instantly, while the front-facing camera will be a 5MP with flash. Both the cameras come accompanied by a LED flash. The battery capacity has been trimmed down to 2,100mAh from the 2,800mAh as found in E5 Play regular variant. However, Motorola didn't share more details such as the processor and the RAM as of now'. It also appears to retain the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor from the standard E5 Play. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. The battery on the device can be similar to the original U.S. model of the Moto E5 Play which packs a 2800mAh battery.
