Motorola Moto G5 with Snapdragon 430 SoC and 13 MP camera launched in India for ₹11,999

After launching the Moto G5 Plus in India last year, Motorola has today launched the Moto G5 in the country at an event held in New Delhi.


The Motorola Moto G5 is the smaller variant of the Moto G5 Plus. Both these smartphones were unveiled in February during MWC 2017. The Moto G5 is powered by Snapdragon 430 SoC which is laced with 3 GB RAM and backed by Adreno 505 GPU.

The Moto G5 boasts a metal body design and also comes with a fingerprint scanner at the front. Unlike its predecessor, the fingerprint scanner on the Moto G5 is rectangle in shape with rounded corners. While the Motorola Moto G5 doesn’t come with capacitive navigation buttons, their actions can be performed by making different gestures on the fingerprint scanner. However, if you find it difficult to use, you can always enable the on-screen navigation buttons while trading off that little extra space on the screen.

We already told you that the Motorola Moto G5 is a bit smaller than the Moto G5 Plus. Well, while the Moto G5 Plus comes with a 5.2-inch display, the Moto G5 sports a 5-inch display. The Moto G5 boots up to Android 7.0 Nougat and ships with a 2800 mAh battery. The device also comes with water-repellent coating which makes it resistant to occasional splashes of water.
