Motorola reveals budget Moto E and Moto G Fast phones

Motorola has updated its budget phone lineup with two devices starting from $149.99 and $199.99 respectively. The Moto E and Moto G Fast phones join the G7 Power and G7 Plus, released last year.

The G7 Fast has a similar design to other G7-branded phones, with a downgraded 720p 19:9 holepunch display and large chin on the bottom. Internally, a Snapdragon 655 is included, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and 4,000mAh battery.

The cameras are practically identical to the G7 Power: 16mp main camera is assisted by an 8-megapixel ultrawide camera and 2-mp macros lens. The front selfie camera is 8-megapixels. Standard specs such as USB-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack and water ‘repellent’ design are also present.

Compared to the Moto E6 from 2019, the Moto E has a larger 6.2-inch 720p display with teardrop notch and large lower chin, and it’s also the first E-phone to have a rear fingerprint sensor. Going from a Snapdragon 435 to 623 brings additional power, but 2GB of RAM is very little. The 3,500mAh battery is larger than last year’s model and the Moto E retains the headphone jack.

Running Android 10, the new budget devices will become available from June 12th through multiple carriers or unlocked.
