T-Mobile launches the affordable Moto E5 Play and Moto E5 Plus, here are the prices
As expected, T-Mobile has just outed two of the cheapest smartphones that customers can find at its stores, the Moto E5 Play and Moto E5 Plus. Both entry-level handsets are available starting today via T-Mobile's online store for either outright or monthly prices.

Motorola Moto E5 Plus is the most expensive, as you'll have to pay $255 to get one, but T-Mobile allows customers to pick one up for just $9 upfront and $9 per month for 24 months. On the other hand, the Moto E5 Play costs just $150 outright or $6 down and $6 per month for 24 months.

Both Motorola smartphones pack support for T-Mobile's 600MHz band (Band 71) allowing them to take advantage of the carrier's new extended range cell towers. Specs-wise, the two phones are pretty much different.

The Moto E5 Plus is equipped with a Snapdragon 435 processor, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. Also, the phone boasts a huge 6-inch HD+ display, an equally massive 5,000 mAh battery that supports Motorola's TurboPower charger, as well as a 12-megapixel rear camera.

The cheaper Moto E5 Play has a Snapdragon 427 processor, 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory. On the back, the phone includes an 8-megapixel camera, but it's got a smaller 5.2-inch display and 2,800 mAh battery. Naturally, both Moto E5 Play and Moto E5 Plus ship with Android 8.0 Oreo on board.
