Moto G5 set to hit India on April 4

Motorola has begun sending out invites for the Moto G5’s launch in India, a few weeks after the Moto G5 Plus made its way here. The former is set to arrive in the country on April 4 and go up for sale via Amazon on April 5 at 12 am.

The Moto G5 was launched in several different versions at its MWC 2017 launch, offering choices between 2GB and 3GB of RAM, as well as 16GB and 32GB of ROM. It’s not certain which variant will be sold in India. The basic 2GB/16GB one costs €199 (roughly Rs 14000).

The Moto G5 Plus notably starts at Rs 14999 in India for its 3GB/16GB variant. Logically speaking, the Moto G5 should have a cheaper price tag than that. The latter differs from its bigger sibling in many aspects such as its smaller 5-inch 1080p display, 2800mAh battery, 13MP rear camera, and octa-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon 430 processor.

Motorola’s stuffed the smartphone with an assortment of software customizations running on top of Nougat. Users can do things like chop the air twice to activate the flashlight or use the fingerprint reader to navigate the screen.
