While there is a standard version of the moto e5 play, this updated version will be made specially for Europe and Latin America, and will feature Android Go.

Motorola announced that the Moto E5 Play will launch in Europe and Latin America sometime this month as an Android Go device. The Moto E-series was unveiled to cater to the entry-segment as the new offerings - the Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus, and Moto E5 Play - were positioned below the respective Moto G6 models.

Interestingly, there are some differences between the regular E5 Play and the Android Go version. Motorola doesn't say but we do not think it comes with Moto Actions. The phone also features a 5.3-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. Unlike the original which has a 5.2-inch HD display, the Android Go Edition has a 5.3-inch 18:9 MaxVision display. Under the hood, it comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Mobile Platform clocked at 1.4GHz and comes coupled with Adreno 308 GPU.

You've probably gotten used to Motorola's naming scheme already, so it's not hard to guess that the Moto E5 Play is a slightly more affordable version of the already cheap Moto E5. The cameras on the phone also stay the same, with an 8MP shooter in the rear and a 5MP sensor on the front for selfies. You can also expand the internal memory up to 128GB thanks to microSD card support. Both have LED flash. It is also splash proof with the p2i water repellent coating.

The E5 Play is backed by a 2100mAh battery. The rest of the phones' specs are similar, including the 8-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel selfie snapper, and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. The smartphone has been priced at Euro 109 (roughly Rs. 8,700).
