With four new smartphones.
Motorola has announced three additions to its Moto G smartphone range together with a new Moto E5 device, each designed and priced for different market segments.
In an exclusive viewing experience with Motorola general manager for APAC, Danny Adamopoulos, he said, the smartphones were recently announced in Brazil at the end of April and will launch in the Australian and New Zealand markets from early June but are available for pre-order now.
“We are still continuing with our ethos of value for money – exceptional device, exceptional value and exceptional price. From a feature to spec comparison, some of our competitor brands taut bigger specs but they are using up to two year old components.
“Our smartphones provide the latest components with the latest experience to ensure longevity. They are launching on the latest software platform, Oreo 8 as software and security updates are key for consumers – they want peace of mind that their product will protect their information.

“Value for money also means quality of build. The industry benchmark for a mobile phone is 1.2% failure rate. With our G Series product alone in Australia we are sitting at 0.8%.
“For this launch, we have brought the Motorola full name back onto the devices, after reverting to Moto for previous models. The Motorola branding resonates well with consumers and they immediately know it’s a mobile phone. With moto, there was some confusion as to what the product was.
“We have two types of customers – the first are mum and dads who buy a smartphone for their young children and the second, is those customers who buy it as a replacement phone if there more expensive phone breaks.
“We have introduced three generations of the G Series this year. In the past, we have only ever brought two into the market and we differentiated with different memory SKUs and colour mixes. That became confusing for customers because there was too much choice. There also was not enough separation in pricing.
“This year we are just bringing in the three different SKUs in the G Series at three different price tiers – $499, $399 and $329, and the E Series has an RRP of $229. Each smartphone has its own uniqueness, whether it is battery life or the camera features.”
