Moto Z Play receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update in India

Alongside the Moto G6 lineup of smartphones, Motorola, the Lenovo-owned company also unveiled the Moto E5 devices, which consists of Moto E5, Moto E5 Plus and the Moto E5 Play.

In terms of soem basic specifications and features, the Motorola Moto E5 Plus comes with a 5.9-inch HD+ (1440x720p) display on the front. The Moto E5 Plus clocks in with a 6.0-inch screen, a 5,000 mAh battery, and a 12MP rear camera.

If you're looking for a big smartphone on a budget the newly announced Moto G6 could be the answer. The biggest trade-off here appears to be a screen resolution that doesn't really grow with the larger panel, but if you don't mind a lower-density display you can pick this handset up for almost €170, in the same nations where the E5 will be sold.

The G6 Play has a massive 4000 mAh battery which can be charged via the microUSB port.

The E range targets the lower end of the market, with the 5.7-inch E5 at Euro 149, 6.0-inch E5 Plus at Euro 169 and the 5.2-inch E5 Play for an undisclosed price.

The Moto G5 measures 144.3 x 73 x 9.5mm and weighs 144.5g. At $200, it's a less expensive option than the standard G6, but you'll get a much bigger, 4,000mAh battery for your trouble. It also has a fingerprint scanner buried under the Moto logo on the rear like its siblings. Both have a 5.7-inch, 18:9 display with rounded edges and thin bezels. The display has an 18:9 aspect ratio and 75% screen-to-body ratio, covered under Gorilla Glass 3. The Huawei P20 has a monochrome sensor to support the main one, while the LG G6 has opted for a wide-angle second camera to fit more in. Like the E5 Play, the E5 Plus only comes with a single camera on its back, but it's equipped with a 12-megapixel sensor. As always, we'll keep you updated as soon as we know more.

Cuba's presidential transition bringing no joy to its exiles
But, steps towards a normalization of ties have been severely curtailed since Donald Trump arrived in the White House past year . He said there would be no compromise in Cuba's foreign policy, which is marked by volatile relations with the United States.

The G6 also comes with a dual camera setup that's equipped with 12MP and 5MP sensors.

The Moto G6 and G6 Play are similar in appearance. We'll be sure to put this to the test as well during our review process. And that's with its mid-range-but-still-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor.

All four handsets come with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Coupled with a bump from the previous Snapdragon 427 chipset to the newer 435 platform, we expect the E5 Plus to be a better choice for even more customers who prioritize battery life, but still need a device that delivers when the going gets tough. Motorola has opted for the 18:9 display format, however, it hasn't decided not to follow the current trend: none of the three models offer the notch, which some of you will be pleased to see! You get just 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a smallish 2,800 mAh battery.

The moto g plus will go on sale in the United Kingdom from 2 May at a starting price of £269 and will be available exclusively at Carphone Warehouse. "Phones that were designed for you that year, not last year's models at cheaper prices". We're still to receive any news regarding a U.S. release, but the phone will be released in Europe during the first week of May at 199 Euros (around $240), available in Charcoal, Dark Blue and Gold.

Motorola does add a few extra features in its version of Android running on the Moto G6, like gestures that act as shortcuts for the camera and flashlight.
