Moto G5S & G5S Plus goes on sale


Motorola’s parent firm Lenovo recently announced the launch of the Moto G5S and G5S Plus smartphones in several markets. The company will shortly share its plan for worldwide launch. The Moto G5S and G5S Plus are the 2017 upgrades to the company’s G5 and G5 Plus devices. However, even the new devices are being considered as parts of the 5th generation as the company maintains that they are special variants of the G5 and G5 Plus.

The launch of the new devices will help Motorola to maintain their strong hold over the budget market in India with the help of its highly successful G series.

In India, the G5S will cost Rs 14,999 and the G5S Plus will be available for Rs 15,999. In other countries, the G5S Plus will be available at the same $230 and $300 for 32GB or 64GB of built-in storage as the G5 Plus.

The G5S Plus boasts a 5.5-inch display, a rear camera module with dual 13 megapixel sensors instead of just one, an 8 megapixel front-facing camera along with a new metal body that reinstates the original’s plastic frame.

However, other desirable features like NFC or USB-C are still missing from the new handsets. This may be reason why the company has not increased the price for the new devices.
