Moto G5 Plus Cost in India
There is no info on the Indian pricing yet, but we believe it will be a bit lower than the international pricing unveiled at the MWC event last week. The Moto G5 Plus costs $229 (approx. €216/Rs 15,289) with 2GB RAM/32GB storage and $279 (approx. €263/Rs 18,627) with 3GB RAM/32GB storage in the US. It will be interesting to see the pricing Motorola chooses for the new smartphone as the Redmi Note 4 currently costs Rs. 13,999 in India.
As of now, Motorola hasn’t announced the online retail partner for the new G series offering. Last year, Moto went with Amazon India, and the year prior to that, the company went with Flipkart. Hence, if Motorola is adopting the alternate strategy, we might see the smartphone to go on sale via Flipkart.
Still, all these details haven’t been confirmed, but come March 15, we shall have all the details.
