Entry level Moto G Fast and Moto E (2020) announced
Today Motorola officially announced the Moto G Fast and Moto E (2020) in the US market.
For $200, the Moto G Fast brings a Snapdragon 665 chipset with 3GB of RAM and a 6.4-inch Max Vision IPS LCD of 720x1560px resolution and a tall 19:9 aspect. It has 32GB of expandable storage and a 4,000mAh battery that charges at 10W charging through USB-C.
There are three cameras on the rear, all borrowed from the Moto G8 Power – 16MP f/1.7 main, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP dedicated macro units. What’s missing from the Moto G8 Power setup is the 8MP telephoto. On the front there’s an 8MP selfie camera.
The Moto G Fast has a traditional capacitive fingerprint scanner on the rear, a 3.5mm headphone jack and is IP52 rated for dust and rain resistance.
The Moto G Fast will go on sale in the US on June 12 through Amazon, Walmart, B&H and BestBuy for $200.
The Moto E (2020) brings a 6.2-inch 720x1520px LCD and a Snapdragon 632 chipset with 2GB of RAM. The storage is again 32GB with option for expansion, while the 3,550mAh battery charges over a microUSB port.
On the rear there’s a fingerprint scanner, a 13MP main camera and a 2MP depth sensor.
Both the Moto E (2020) and Moto G Fast are running an almost-stock variant of Android 10 with Motorola’s promise of at least one major OS update for the Moto G Fast (no such promise for the Moto E (2020)).
The Moto E (2020) is IPx2 certified for dripping rain (no dust protection) and will go on sale unlocked for $150 through a number of US retailers and subsidized through T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, US Cellular, Xfinity Mobile, Republic Wireless and Verizon prepaid.
