If you thought Moto G4 and G4 Plus was priced low for what they offer, Lenovo might have something to impress you further. As per the latest leak by Roland Quandt (Twitter handle: winfuture.de), Moto G5’s Europe pricing will be EUR 189 (approx. Rs 13,450) for the 2GB RAM variant, EUR 209 for the 3GB RAM variant which translates to about Rs 15,000. To compare, the Moto G4 3GB RAM variant was priced at EUR 249 last year. The next-gen Moto G5 and G5 Plus is all set showcase their ability at the upcoming Mobile World Congress 2017 which starts late this month in Barcelona, Spain.
Moto G4 was launched in India for Rs 12,499 (2GB RAM variant), however, the India pricing for the new Moto G5 is expected to be lower than what has been revealed for Europe. Also, Lenovo is expected to release the Moto G5 smartphone just after the MWC 2017, claimed a previous report.
Well, a price lower than its predecessor is always a welcome move, but will there be any compromises? Time will tell. Till then, the 5th generation Moto G smartphone is expected to come with a 5.5-inch full HD display, the new 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage. For the optics, Lenovo is expected to give in a 13-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
On the other hand, Lenovo is also expected to launch the Plus variant of the device. The Moto G5 Plus will share a lot of specifications including the same display, Snapdragon 625 chipset etc. However, the Plus variant will boast 4GB of RAM with 32GB/64GB of internal storage options. Apart from that, it is also expected to come with a fingerprint sensor, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, a slightly larger 3080 mAh battery and 12-megapixel primary camera combines with an 8-megapixel front shooter.
Both the devices will come with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, Wi-Fi and a microUSB port. It’s sad to see companies still opting for a microUSB port instead of the new USB Type-C port.
