Moto G5 Plus has been launched in India, and will be available exclusively via Flipkart from Wednesday itself, starting 11:59pm IST. The smartphone will come in two colour options – Lunar Grey and Fine Gold, and will come with several launch offers.
Lenovo has launched two Moto G5 Plus variants in India – 3GB RAM+16GB storage at Rs. 14,999, and 4GB RAM+32GB storage at Rs. 16,999. Both variants will be available in the above mentioned colour options.
Moto G5 Plus launch offers:
The Moto G5 Plus launch offers include an additional Rs.1,500 discount on exchange; additional 10 percent discount on SBI cards; no-cost EMIs starting at Rs. 1,889 a month, and the Moto Pulse 2 headset – which costs Rs. 1,299 – can be purchased at discounted price of Rs. 599. Flipkart has also announced a BuyBack Guarantee for the smartphone, where users will be assured of a fixed exchange discount of Rs. 7,000 for their Moto G5 Plus for up to 8 months after purchase.
The smartphone, alongside the Moto G5, is the first Moto G series smartphone to feature an all-metal design – it’s built using diamond-cut high-grade aluminium 6000. This is the biggest highlight of the Moto G5 Plus, apart from what the company is touting as a best-in-class rear camera. The dual-SIM smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, and has a separate microSD card slot – letting users insert two SIM cards and one microSD card simultaneously. It sports a fingerprint sensor on the home button.
Now, let us get to the Moto G5 Plus specifications. The smartphone sports a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) IPS LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is powered by a 2GHz Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC, and in India this is coupled with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM.

On the front, it sports a 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a wide-angle lens. Onboard storage, either 16GB or 32GB, is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).
Moto G5 Plus connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, Bluetooth v4.2, 3.5mm audio jack, and Micro-USB. The Moto G5 Plus battery capacity is 3000mAh.
