Motorola has today announced that it has launched 3 new devices across a range of price points in Australia with the Motorola edge 30, Moto g82 5G and Moto e32.

The new Motorola range is aimed at providing a suite full of features at various price points to suit any budget such as high-end visual and audio experiences, vibrant displays and great battery life that will exceed consumer expectations.

Kurt Bonnici, Head of Motorola, ANZ, has stated at the launch of these devices that:

“If there’s one thing Motorola is known for doing well, it is creating smartphones with premium features and capabilities at prices that don’t break the bank. This is because we have constantly challenged ourselves to continue delivering our products based on what our consumers want: A high-end smartphone experience without the hefty price tag,” and that “At a time where the cost of living is increasing, it has never been more important for us to deliver great products that are not only competitively priced but also exceed user expectations. The new Motorola edge 30, moto g82 5G and moto e32 each have everything you could want at that price point, and more. From the Motorola edge 30 with its blistering fast power to the brilliant display and immersive audio of the moto g82 5G, or the durable yet sleek design of the moto e32, there is something for everyone. We couldn’t be more excited to be bringing these new devices to the Australian market.”
