Last month, Motorola unveiled its latest Moto E5 and G6 series smartphones to the public. Along with the specs, Motorola announced the pricing and availability of these two phones.
Based on the announcement, the Moto E5 Cruise will be launching on Cricket Wireless on May 25th. Just a few days after this scheduled date, Cricket Wireless has announced that this new smartphone is already available at select authorized retail stores and online.
The Moto E5 Cruise is just like the Moto E5 Play. The only difference is that it has been rebranded specifically for Cricket Wireless as the E5 Cruise. Another big difference is that the E5 Cruise does not have a fingerprint sensor while the E5 Play has one.
If you do decide to get the Moto E5 Cruise, you’ll be getting a device with a 5.2-inch LCD display panel with a 1280×720 resolution. From within, it is powered by a 1.4GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 425 or 427 processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. There is a microSD card slot for up to 128GB memory expansion.
To take photos, the Moto E5 Cruise comes with an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor. The phone also comes with a removable 2800mAh battery, a headphone jack, and Android 8.0 Oreo upon unboxing. A good thing about this device is that it comes with a water repellant coating that serves as protection against spills and splashes.
You can get the Moto E5 Cruise from select Cricket Wireless authorized retailers and their website with a price of $ 99.99 for both new and existing customers. You can then pair it with one of the plans offered by Cricket, which start at $ 30 per month.
Cricket is running a referral program where you can earn an account credit of $ 25 for every successful referral (or up to $ 250 each calendar year). You can use these credits to pay for a Cricket Wireless service or feature added to your account.
