Moto G5S gets a permanent price cut in India

Moto is preparing the stage for its newer G6 lineup

Published

on

In the wake of the company’s upcoming Moto G6 series launch, Lenovo-owned Motorola on Monday announced a permanent price cut on the Moto G5S. The midrange smartphone has received a discount of INR 5,000 (US$ 76) and is now available for its new official price of INR 9,999 (US$ 152). The smartphone can be purchased across Moto Hubs, Amazon.in, and offline retail partners in Fine Gold, Lunar Grey, and Oxford Blue color variants.

The updated lineup will likely include the Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and Moto G6 Plus, and these phones can be expected to make their way to India soon enough. Going back to the Moto G5S, the phone was launched as a special version of the Moto G5 and sports a metal body design with a chunky build that makes it quite solid and firm.


The Moto G5S currently runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and is expected to receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update soon. It features a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS LCD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

In terms of performance, the Moto G5S is powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card. For photography, there is a 16-megapixel rear camera with PDAF along with a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and LED flash.

However, the phone may look a little outdated now compared to its competition as it doesn’t sport an 18:9 display and is yet to receive Android Oreo.

Even though the price drop is only now official, the phone was available at the lower price for quite some time now. Flipkart, which is not one of the authorized sellers for this phone, sells it for an even lower price.
