Motorola Moto G5 smartphone set to launch in India on April 4

Lenovo Moto, following the launch of the Moto G5 Plus earlier this month is back with another G series smartphone, the Moto G5. It is set to unveil the smartphone on April 4 and has already started sending out media invites for the event to be held in New Delhi. To recall, the Moto G5 was announced alongside the costlier Moto G5 Plus at the stage of Mobile World Congress 2017 (MWC) held in Barcelona, Spain. With the India launch, the company is trying to keep both the major e-commerce players of the country happy, as the Moto G5 Plus was Flipkart exclusive while the upcoming Moto G5 will be exclusive to Amazon India.

Features looks decent but not super cool to lure newbies. Battery power of 2800mAh is not what we expect as fellow competitors like Mi are going on a ramphage when we consider battery juice.Wake up Moto..........................
