Motorola announces budget Moto E30 and E40 with 90Hz screen

We have 2 new budget Moto phones; the Moto E30 and E40. Or actually 3 but the Moto G Pure won't be released everywhere. The same seems to be true for the E30 and E40, by the way.

The E30 and E40 don't seem to differ much from each other. Both have a 6.5-inch Max Vision HD+ screen with high 90Hz refresh rate, a 48MP camera system and a big 5000 mAh battery. Also, both of them have a fingerprint scanner on the back inside the Motorola logo.

Biggest difference is the choice of operating system. The Moto E30 runs Android 11 Go Edition while the Moto E40 gets a full-fledged version of Android. This allows the E30 to run with less RAM memory (2GB) while the E40 is equipped with double that (4GB).

Furthermore, Motorola also announced the Moto G Pure but only for the US and Canada. It seems that this is almost the same device as the Moto E40. So with a 6.5 inch HD+ screen with 90Hz display and a fingerprint scanner in the logo on the back.
