Motorola releases the Moto E5, E5 plus, and G6 in the Philippines




Motorola Philippines officially announced the availability of a trio of their mid-range offerings — the Moto E5, E5 PlusG6.

First up let’s look at the G6. The device is powered by a 5.7-inch 18:9 FHD+ IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 3 or 4GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of internal storage, USB Type-C, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 3,000mAh battery. As for cameras, we get a dual rear setup consisting of a 12MP main and 5MP secondary and a single 8MP front. It’s splash resistant thanks to its p2i water-repellant coating.

The G6 actually has an interesting curved design, reminiscent of the past Galaxy S Edge devices. That’s not to say its bad, it’s actually refreshing to see that Motorola has veered away from their generic design. Although, the protruding circular camera mount is still present.

Next is the Moto E5. The device is powered by a 5.7-inch 18:9 HD+ IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, Adreno 308 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, microUSB, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 4,000mAh battery. As for cameras, we get a single 13MP rear with 1.12um pixels and a 5MP front.

Design-wise, we get the more generic Moto design we’ve seen for a number of years now. Sadly, we lost the p2i water-repellant coating that we saw with the G6 line.

Next up is the bigger and slightly better specc’d Moto E5 Plus. Powering the E5’s bigger sibling is a 6-inch 18:9 HD+ IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, Adreno 308 GPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, microUSB, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a whopping 5,000mAh battery. As for cameras, we get a single 12MP rear with 1.25um big pixels and an 8MP front with 1.12um pixels.

The E5 Plus gets a better looking curved glass body but still with that Moto touch. Thankfully, the p2i water-repellant coating is present on the E5 Plus.
