General News Moto G5 launched in India, priced at Rs 11,999: Specifications, features
Advertisement
#1

After an unveiling at MWC 2017, the Moto G5 Plus was launched in India last month. Today, Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched the smaller and less expensive Moto G5. The smartphone is priced at Rs 11,999, and it will be an Amazon India exclusive.

As far as the design is concerned, the Moto G5 doesn’t look anything like last year’s Moto G4. In place of all that plastic is an aluminum body, which is not only sturdy, but also ups the premium factor. Interestingly, the back panel of the Moto G5 is removable, which is not the case with the Moto G5 Plus. Also unlike last year, where only the Plus variant got the fingerprint sensor, this year, the Moto G5 too gets the extra layer of security. DON’T MISS: Moto G5 Plus Review

Moto G5 price, availability
The Moto G5 has been launched, priced at Rs 11,999. Sales for the new smartphone start tonight at 12:00AM on Amazon India, along with a bunch of special launch day offers. For one, Amazon Prime members buying the Moto G5 will be getting Rs 1,000 cashback, which will be added to Pay Balance. HDFC card users will get an additional Rs 1,000 cashback, a free SanDisk Ultra microSD card, and also up to Rs 500 off on exchange of an old smartphone.

Moto G5 specifications, features
As far as specifications are concerned, the Moto G5 flaunts a 5-inch full HD (1080p) IPS LCD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 octa-core chipset paired with 3GB of RAM. The 16GB internal storage is expandable using a microSD card.

For photography, the smartphone is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and PDAF support. Camera modes include quick capture, beautification mode and a pro mode that gives you manual control over different aspects. There’s also a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture and wide-angle lens for selfie lovers. The Moto G5 is backed by a 2,800mAh battery, which the company says is good enough to last a day with a single charge. The battery also supports 10W rapid charge. As with most Moto smartphones, there’s a nano coating on the outside and inside, which protects the device from an accidental splash of water.

Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android Nougat 7.0 out-of-the-box. Motorola smartphones are known for running on near stock Android OS, and the Moto G5 is no different. Some of the customizations include Moto Display to show notifications, and an option to disable the on-screen buttons. With this mode enabled, you will have to swipe on the home button for navigation or to open the multitasking window. The smartphone also comes preloaded with Amazon India app, Amazon Video app, as well as Amazon Kindle app.

Having spent sometime with the Moto G5 at MWC 2017, my first impressions of the smartphone were quite positive. But competition in this segment is fierce. With prices starting at Rs 11,999, the Moto G5 is set to face strong competition from smartphones like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Honor 6X, Lenovo K6 Power, and Vivo Y55s to name a few.
