Motorola’s already launched the Moto G5 Plus in India and it’s now decided to move ahead with the unveiling of the Moto G5 as promised. The smaller variant is set to go official on April 4 as per media invites issued by the brand.
Motorola’s also confirmed that the Moto G5 will be sold only via Amazon India starting from April 5 at 12 am. The venue marks a switch for the company since it’s currently vending the Moto G5 Plus exclusively via Flipkart.
Indian price and version details are unknown as of now. The Moto G5 was initially announced in 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of ROM options starting at €199 (approx Rs 14000). Its larger sibling kicks things off at Rs 14999. It’s safe to assume that the more compact model will be cheaper than that.
