We are not sure if the Moto G5 Plus global launch yesterday lived to your expectations or not, but this clearly the most awaited smartphone in India as of today. And if you have been holding up patiently for its India launch, you won’t have to wait much longer!
Lenovo will be officially launching the Moto G5 Plus (and maybe even the G5) in India on March 15th.

The successor of Moto G4 Plus comes with a reinvented design line and upgraded specifications. The phone flaunts a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display along with Snapdragon 625 chipset clocked at 2GHz. It comes in three memory options: 2GB RAM/3GB/ 4GB and two different storage variants – 32GB/64GB. The Indian models of the new Moto phones are expected to feature a dual SIM card slot alongside a dedicated microSD card slot.
The Moto G5, on the other hand, houses a 5-inch display and is powered by entry-grade 1.4Ghz Snapdragon 430 octa-core chipset. It comes with a 2,800mAh battery with fast charging capabilities. Motorola might not bring the Moto G5 to India right away.
