Motorola Releases Four New Aggressively Priced 4G Smartphones
US smartphone brand Motorola has added four new devices to its affordable G and E series in Australia, all of which are priced under $300.
The four entry-level smartphones are all 4G-connected and are aimed squarely in the affordable, prepaid mid-tier market.
First in the line-up is the $159 Moto E7 Power, which Motorola describes as being “all about battery life”.
The E7 ships with an ultra-wide display, dual camera system, 32GB of RAM and a built-in Google Assistant button.
The E7’s dual camera system comprises a 13MP main camera and 2MP macro, plus a 5MP selfie camera.
Powered by Android 10, the 4G E7 Power ships with a 5000mAh battery which offers an amazing 36 hours of battery life on a single charge and has a rear fingerprint sensor.
The E7 will be available from April 1st in two colours, Tahini Blue and Coral Red, at major retailers and from Motorola.com.au.
Next up is the E7 Power’s pricier sibling, the standard E7, which is only $50 more expensive at $199.
The E7 has a much more sophisticated camera system with a 48MP main camera with quad pixel technology and a 2MP macro camera, plus a 5MP selfie camera with HDR.
The 6.5-inch phone has a slightly less impressive battery than the E7 Power at 4000mAh, ships with a HD+ display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a rear fingerprint sensor on the plastic back.
The $199 Moto E7 will be available from April 1 in Mineral Gray at major CE retailers and from Motorola’s online store.
Motorola also released two phones in its popular G Series line-up.
The company’s aggressively priced G series phones come only six months after the brand released its G9 Play, which has now reached “end of life” after a quick-fire success on the market.
Speaking at the product launch, Danny Adamopoulos said Motorola sold a staggering 25 million G-series units over the last 14 months and expects the Moto G10 and G30 to sell just as well.
The $249 Moto G10 is a feature-rich smartphone with an industry leading camera, Motorola says.
It’s powered by the Snapdragon 460 chipset and ships with a 6.5-inch LCD display, plus a 48MP quad camera system (8MP selfie camera) with night vision, quad pixel technology and an ultra-wide angle lens.
The G10 also comes with a 5000mAh battery and is powered by Android 11. An extra plus in the G10 is the addition of fun gestures, such as the swipe to split screen feature.
Available from April 1, the Moto G10 will be on the shelves at Australia’s major CE retailers and from the Motorola online store.
Last but not least is Motorola’s new flagship G series phone, the Moto G30.
The $299 G30 may only be slightly more expensive but it takes the G10 to the next level with an improved 64MP ultra-resolution quad camera system and an impressive 118-degree ultra-wide lens.
For such an affordable device, the G30 has incredible camera features such as face detection, touch to focus, auto flash and digital zoom.
It has a 6.5-inch Max Vision HD+ 90hz display and is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 662 chip.
Backed by A 5000mAh battery, the Moto G30 will last for two days on a single charge and of course has a rear fingerprint sensor.
The Moto G30 is also available from April 1st at retailers including JB Hi-Fi, Officeworks, The Good Guys, Big W, Harvey Norman and from Motorola online.
