Motorola’s Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus are soon to be unveiled, and both are said to be priced much lower for the Indian smartphone market.
According to a recent tweet by Roland Quandt, the Moto G5S will be priced at €300, while the G5S Plus will be priced at €330. He adds that the pricing comes from Eastern Europe. The Indian pricing will be Rs. 22.5K for the Moto G5S and Rs. 24.5K for G5S Plus. This could be a strategy similar to the one followed during the Moto Z2 Play launch – in the US, it was priced at $499 (Rs. 32K), but the same device in India was priced at Rs. 28K.
Both devices will be sold globally, unlike the launch pattern of their predecessors, of which only the smaller Moto G5 was made available at the global level.
The larger smartphone is said to be codenamed Sanders, and it will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor backed by 4 GB of RAM, in addition to boasting 32GB / 64GB of native storage expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. It will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a screen resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels protected by 2.5D glass. It will come with a slightly modified version of Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box.
The Moto G5S Plus was rumored to come with a dual camera combination of two 13-megapixel sensors, one to capture RGB and other to capture monochrome – much the way most dual camera setups work.
The camera is also preloaded with features like bokeh, background replacement and so on.
The Moto G5S will come in a 5.2-inch LCD option and will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 425 processor. Other features are said to be similar to the G5S Plus except for its rear panel, which will have a single 13-megapixels lens. Both handsets are said to come with improved features over the smartphones introduced earlier this year.
