Motorola has made its latest Moto E-series phone official, although it seems exclusive to a handful of markets such as Brazil and the Netherlands at present. The decided sub-US$200 phone comes with a Unisoc processor, minimal RAM and an interesting textured rear panel.

Some recent leaks have served to insist that Motorola was working on a new device that would take the numbers that come after the E in Moto E into double figures for the first time. This device was projected to run on Android 11 Go, a rear panel finished in a honeycomb texture that comes in blue or gray and a processor that, while 4G/LTE, would not come from Qualcomm or MediaTek as is most usual. Now, the OEM has confirmed all of this in launching the E20.

This device fills in its very few rumor-free blanks with a 6.5-inch MaxVision HD+ display that has a V-shaped notch for its 5MP selfie camera. Its rear panel does indeed have dual cameras, (a 13MP main shooter and a 2MP depth sensor) as well as a Motorola logo with a fingerprint sensor baked in.

The Moto E20 has 2GB of RAM, paired to a "super-responsive" (albeit 1.6GHz) Unisoc T606, alongside an ARM Mali-G57 GPU. It supports Bluetooth 5.0 and b/g/n Wi-Fi, although there is no NFC. The E20 has 32GB of internal storage, although there is a dual SIM/microSD card slot.

It has a decently generous 4,000mAh battery, although it can charge at just 10 watts (W) via USB type C. Finally, the Moto E20 does indeed have a 3.5mm jack. Motorola has priced this new offering at 899.10 real (~US$172) in Brazil.

It has also reportedly launched the E20 in the Netherlands for €99 ($117), although it is slated to wait  until October 2021 for a release to that market.
