Motorola doesn't say but we do not think it comes with Moto Actions. However. Now the company has announced another version of the Moto E5 Play that will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition), and will be available in Europe and Latin American countries.

Back in April 2018, Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility announced the new Moto G-series and E-series devices. The E5 Play's Android Go version has a display of 5.3-inch, which is an inch bigger than the regular E5 Play.

For starters, Android Go support means the new E5 Play runs a relatively clean version of Android Oreo that includes Go variants of Google apps. Apart from the modern 18:9 display, there are no other upgrades, but we can find quite a few downgrades to make it cost a bit cheaper.

Compared to the standard variant of the Moto E5 Play, which features a 5.2-inch display (16:9 aspect ratio), the newer version now comes with a 5.3-inch screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

It's not easy tracking where and when each Android smartphone is released - but it's interesting watching which phone goes where.

Software is not the only thing that is different about the new E5 Play.

Android Go, also known as Android Oreo (Go edition), is a stripped-down version of Android created to run on entry-level smartphones.

The Go version of the E5 play is expected to retail for roughly $128 and will go on sale from end-July in European and Latin American markets.

Android Go is a version of Android 8.0 Oreo designed for budget smartphones, offering less storage and RAM usage, and a selection of streamlined applications. Android Go smartphones typically feature 8GB of storage at most, though the regular E5 Play includes 16GB of expandable storage.

In terms of imaging, the G5 Play features an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with an LED flash.
