Lenovo, which unveiled the Moto G5 on Sunday at MWC 2017, is bringing the phone to India on March 15. The company has already started sending media invites for the event scheduled for March 15 in New Delhi.

While the next-generation Moto G comes in two variants - the G5 and the G5 Plus, the invite sent to the Indian media hints that only the Plus variant will make its way to India. It, however, is not confirmed yet.

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 oct-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 utilizing 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.

The Moto G5 Plus carries a price tag of $229 for the 32GB model with 2GB RAM and approximately $295 for the 32GB variant with 3GB RAM. The company is yet to announce prices for the Indian market.

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