LONDON, 19, APRIL 2018 – Motorola today announced the new Motorola moto g6 and moto e5 families at a global launch event in Sao Paolo, Brazil.  Packed with features and premium functionality, the new moto g6 and moto e5 families are designed with the consumer in mind, offering exceptional value. The devices will be available in the UK from 2nd May starting from £119. 

Five years ago, Motorola set out to address a gap in the market: quality smartphones that could do great things - at a price that even more people could afford. These phones had to be current, designed that year - not last year’s models at cheaper prices.

The first moto g became the best-selling smartphone in Motorola history.  Since then, we have continued to push the boundaries of the value equation even further with the debut of the moto e, a smartphone that was fully loaded and fairly priced. The moto g and moto e product families offer the perfect combination of features for consumers who don’t want to compromise on quality, style or experience. 

This year the legacy continues with the newest generations of the moto g and moto e families. They have the innovations that matter most to you. They are smarter than ever and focus on display, design and power. They have the speed and power of Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors and run Android™ 8.0 Oreo™. They have great Moto Experiences that unlock AI opportunities.

moto g6 plus: Smart camera. Serious performance 

The new moto g6 plus is picture perfect in every way. Featuring a 5.9", 18:9 aspect ratio, its Full HD Max Vision display delivers vivid colours and all the fine details. Capture the most creative shots using its advanced software and focus in an instant with Dual Autofocus Pixel technology.

Taking great pictures even in low light just got easier, thanks to its large f/1.7 aperture and 1.4um pixel size. But capturing those breathtaking moments is just the beginning, the smart camera system supports text scanning as well as landmark and object detection.

moto g6: Designed to impress. Built to create

The moto g6 is designed to impress. Its 5.7" Full HD Max Vision display delivers vivid colours and fine details, while its attention-grabbing 3D glass back creates a gorgeous shape and look that stands out among other premium smartphones.  

Advanced imaging software means studio quality portraits, artistic black and white shots, and hilarious face filters come to life through the dual rear 5MP and 12MP cameras.  And it keeps getting better, instantly lock or unlock your phone with the multifunctional fingerprint reader. 

moto g6 play: Play today. Charge tomorrow  

The moto g6 play works as hard as you do, helping you set aside plenty of time to play. Its powerful 4000 mAh, all-day battery1 can last up to 32 hours on a single charge, giving you the ultimate peace of mind when out and about. Take it a step further with its powerful 1.4 GHzOcta-core processor that gives you the speed to access photos, apps, and everything in between, without any stutter or lag time.

moto eplus: Big screen. Big battery. Hello entertainment

From dawn until dusk, the moto e5 plus is there for you. Make the most of even the longest commutes with its powerful 5000 mAh battery1 and 6” Max Vision screen. The moto e5 plus’ sleek 18:9 aspect ratio means it still fits perfectly in your hand and comes designed with a reflective wave pattern and a curved back that looks as great as it feels.

Unlocking your phone has never been easier with just one touch of the fingerprint reader, located within the phone’s iconic Motorola logo. Even those crowded trains are no match for this home entertainment in the palm of your hands. 

moto e5: See more. Do more

The moto e5 is there to see you through your day. Even with a big 5.7” Max Vision display, the moto e5 still fits perfectly in your hand thanks to its 18:9 aspect ratio and ergonomically curved back. Do more with ease by unlocking your notifications, calls or home screen in an instant with its discreet fingerprint reader2 hidden in Motorola’s iconic logo. A dedicated microSD4 card slot makes room for more photos, songs and videos. 

Unlimited high-quality storage

And as with all Motorola phones, Google Photos5 is the default gallery for all your photos and videos. So, all your memories are automatically backed up, searchable and can easily be accessed, shared and edited from any device.
