The Moto G Fast and E 2020 are now officially on the US market
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.
