Moto G5S gets a permanent price cut

Moto G5S

Motorola’s Moto G6 series is right around the corner, making this the perfect time to slash the price of the Moto G5S. The phone had arrived in India back in August last year as the successor to the Moto G5.

The Moto G5S will now be making way for the Moto G6 by getting a Rs 5000 discount from Rs 14999 to Rs 9999. The new cost is applicable across Moto Hubs, physical stores, and Amazon India. The e-commerce site is selling the Fine Gold and Lunar Grey variants at Rs 9999, but the Oxford Blue variant has gotten a lower Rs 4500 cut down to Rs 10499.

The Oxford Blue Moto G5S actually got launched later in October 2017, which might explain why it’s only Rs 4500 cheaper. As for the Moto G5S Plus, it got a permanent markdown to Rs 14999 back in December 2017. It’s now available at Rs 13999 on Amazon India.
