Although the Motorola Moto G5 was unveiled at MWC 2017 next to the Moto G5 Plus, this Snapdragon 430-driven Android smartphone is set to arrive in India more than two weeks after its sibling.

Lenovo launched the Motorola Moto G5 Plus in India less than two weeks ago, but without its cheaper sibling that was unveiled next to it at MWC 2017. Now, we already have a launch date for the Motorola Moto G5 in India - April 4.

The specs and features have been revealed already, including the 5-inch full HD touchscreen and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. The memory options include 2 GB or 3 GB RAM and 16 GB or 32 GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD slot that supports memory cards up to 128 GB. This handset also features a 5 MP front camera and a 13 MP main image shooter, being powered by a 2,800 mAh battery and running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

India gets the Moto G5 exclusively via Amazon. The available colors are expected to be Fine Gold and Lunar Gray. There is no official price yet, but since the G5 Plus retails for ₹16,999 INR, its sibling should be priced around ₹12,000 INR - roughly $184 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
