Motorola has just released the new Moto G Fast to the US market. This Android 10 phone has 3GB of RAM, the Snapdragon 665 SoC and triple rear cameras. It is joined by the latest addition to the Moto E series, which has 2GB of RAM and dual cameras instead.

Motorola had been teasing the Moto G Fast for some time prior to its US launch. Now, the device is available to pre-order on the OEM's US website, as is the Moto E 2020. The former was projected to simply be a renamed G8 or G8 Power; however, it seems that is not exactly the case.

This phone has 3GB of RAM, whereas the 2 older phones have 4 apiece. It does, however, share the 6.4-inch  punch-hole IPS display with some of the G8 series, although the panel here is HD+ rather than FHD+. It does get triple rear cameras, however, which are 16+8+2MP shooters in this new phone.

The G Fast also has a 4000mAh battery, whereas the G8 Power for one benefits from 1000mAh more. It charges at up to 10 watt (W), whereas the new Moto E has a 3550mAh power-pack that fills up at half this rate. Disappointingly, this 2020 generation remains stuck on microUSB for this purpose, whereas the G Fast has a type C port at least.

This new low-end phone has a 6.2-inch HD+ screen, with a more traditional water-drop notch and something of a chin as well. Its Snapdragon 632 SoC is paired with 2GB of RAM, and it features 13+2MP lenses on its Midnight Blue back panel.

Both new Motos run Android 10, have 32GB of internal storage and have headphone jacks. They are priced at US$149.99 and $199.99 respectively. It will be interesting to see how they fare against their contemporaries, which come from brands such as Nokia and Samsung at present.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
