Lenovo-owned Motorola has just announced Moto G5 for the Indian market. Even, few of us have missed this live event, but don't worry we have covered all specs and features of this phone. Motorola will launch the Moto G5 smartphone in India today for which it had sent out media invites. Moto G5 customers get also get an 80 percent discount on ebooks (up to a maximum of Rs. 300). This put it directly in competition with the very popular Redmi Note 4 whose top end variant costs Rs.12,999.The Moto G5 is Amazon India exclusive and it comes with a ton of launch offers.

The Moto G5 is thicker as well, measuring at 9.5 mm while the G5 Plus has 7.7 mm of thickness.

The Android 7.0 Nougat operating system is now being rolled out as an update for the Amazon Prime exclusive Moto G4 smartphone. Prime members get the same amount if they utilize their Amazon Pay balance. While this might put the Moto G5 at a disadvantage in terms of size, the handset enjoys better pixel density. The Moto G5 comes with a 2,800 mAh battery while the G5 Plus packs 3,000 mAh battery juice. Not only that, the fingerprint sensor also acts like a one navigation button where users don't need back, home, and overview buttons anymore. Which Moto G is worth the "moolah"?

We have yet to hear about the Moto Zs successor, due to launch this summer.
