Moto E5 Plus with 6-inch 18:9 display and 5000 mAh battery launching in India on July 10

Last weekend, we told you that Lenovo-owned Motorola is all set to launch the Moto E5 Plus in India soon. At that time, we didn’t have the exact date of launch, and assumed that Motorola would launch the E5 Plus sometime this week. However, Motorola has now announced the India launch date of Moto E5 Plus, and, it won’t be launching in the country this week. Instead it will be launched next week.


Motorola has announced that it will launch the Moto E5 Plus in India next week on July 10. The smartphone will be sold online exclusively through Amazon India, and, will also be available for purchase through Moto Hub stores.


The Moto E5 Plus was announced back in April this year at an event in Brazil. However, alongside the Moto E5 Plus, Motorola had also announced the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Play, but, there’s no word on whether or not these smartphones will be launched in India on July 10. Well, even if Motorola doesn’t launch either or both of these smartphones in India on July 10, chances are we might see the company bringing them to the country later on. But, considering the fact that the Moto E5 Plus is the most powerful in the Moto E5 series, we wouldn’t miss the other two smartphones.

The Moto E5 Plus is priced at €169 which translates to ₹13,517 according to current exchange rates. However, we believe that Motorola should launch the Moto E5 Plus at a lower price in India as this segment has quite a few smartphones with better specs like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro and ASUS ZenFone Max Pro M1.
