Lenovo has finally introduced the much-awaited Moto G5 Plus smartphone in India. The phone comes in two variants - 16GB (with 3 GB RAM) at Rs 14,999 and 32 GB (with 4GB RAM) at Rs 16,999. Both the models will be exclusively available on Flipkart from March 15 at 11:59 PM.

The company has also announced a few offers for the Moto G5 Plus customers.


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.

Lenovo, last year, had introduced the Moto G4 in India in both the regular and the Plus variants.
