Motorola has set itself a goal of shipping 30 million Moto G6 units. It’s fair to say that the Moto G series has certainly been one of the Chicago-based company’s success stories, with the five previous generations selling a combined 70 million units worldwide. With the launch of the latest lineup, however, Motorola is banking on high sales in order to boost the Moto G series’ lifetime numbers to over 100 million units.
Motorola’s upcoming Moto Z3 Play has just appeared in a new render. The Chicago-based brand is currently expected to reveal its upcoming upper-midrange device towards the beginning of summer and now, following a number of case leaks, an official press render has apparently appeared, revealing the device’s design entirely.
With the hopes of continuing its strong presence in the entry-level segment of the market, Motorola today announces meaningful refreshments to its G- and E-series.
The new G6 Plus, G6 and G6 Play, just like their predecessors, are looking to deliver great value for the money. Of the three, the G6 Plus is positioned as the most powerful handset, while the G6 Play is the most affordable one.
Design-wise, the phones are mostly similar in terms of aesthetics and feature a gradual, meaningful evolution over the G5 and G5 Plus. We get smaller bezels, a trendy tall device footprint thanks …
The Moto G line has been a longtime strong competitor in mid-range landscape, so it’s no surprise that another year brings yet another successor into the equation. This time around, though, we’re getting a one-two punch as both the Moto G6 and G6 Play are being introduced simultaneously packing trendy features – while complemented with affordable prices.
The Motorola Moto E5 Play comes with a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 chip, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage (expandable via microSD), 5.2-inch 720p screen, an 8-megapixel main shooter and an additional 5-megapixel unit for selfies.
The Motorola Moto G series are usually often mentioned in conversations about no-nonsense midrangers that balance affordability with performance well. However, it’s not the cheapest line Moto has in store. That would be the Moto E family — the most basic Motorola phones that still have a distinct Moto flavor to them, plus a special feature or two to set them apart.
The new members of the Moto E line are the Moto E5 Plus, Moto E5 and Moto E5 Play. Of the three, the Moto E5 Plus is the highest end proposition, followed by the E5 and E5 Play, the latter being the cheapest one.
Motorola’s midrange and budget warriors, the Moto E5 and G6, and their Plus and Play versions are just around the corner… if you live in Mexico, that is, as they just got released in Brazil, and will be available in Mexico next week. As for the rest of the world, well, Motorola is only saying that the phones will “roll out over the coming months in various countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America.”
Motorola isn’t promising any major OS upgrades for its newly-announced Moto E5 series. The company launched the new line of devices yesterday alongside a trio of Moto G6 smartphones. Despite guaranteeing at least one major update for the latter series, though, it appears the company couldn’t make the same promise when it came to its budget line.
