Chinese smartphone maker Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility has announced a permanent price-cut for its Moto G5S Plus smartphone in the country. It will now retail at INR 14,999, down INR 1,000 from its launch price.
Moto G5S Plus was originally introduced in India in late-August at INR 15,999. It is exclusive to Amazon India online and Moto Hub outlets offline. With its main competitors like Xiaomi Mi A1 getting a price-cut and Honor 7X being on sale, it was a high time that Moto G5S Plus got a price correction.
Moto G5S, the smaller cousin of the G5S plus, already retails over INR 1K less than its original pricing at Flipkart.com, which is the exclusive online retailer for the phone.
To remind you, Moto G5S Plus sports a 5.5-inch full HD screen. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor and includes 4GB of RAM. The phone also packs 64GB of internal storage, microSD card slot and 3000 mAh battery. Additionally, there is dual 13MP rear camera and 8MP front shooter in the phone. It runs on Android 7.1 Nougat and will be getting the Android 8.0 update sometime in 2018.
