Lenovo, which unveiled the Moto G5 to the world late last month, is all set to bring the phone to India today. The fifth iteration of the Moto G smartphone comes in two variants - the G5 and the G5 Plus, but the company, in all likelihood, will bring only the G5 Plus to India.

The Moto G5 Plus is encased in a metal body, which happens to be a first for the Moto G. Under its hood is an octa-core processor. The Moto G5 features a 12 megapixel rear with Dual Autofocus Pixels, which is said to lock onto the target in the blink of an eye. “By utilising 10x more pixels on the sensor, you can focus on your subject up to 60 per cent faster than Moto G4 Plus,” explains Lenovo.

The phone is packed with a 3000mAh battery with TurboPower charging feature, which is claimed to offer up to six hours of battery life in just 15 minutes.

There is no word yet on the India pricing of the phone. The company will announce the price and availability details for the Indian market at the March 15 event in New Delhi.
