Motorola took to the stage at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona yesterday to unveil two new handsets, the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus. It detailed everything that’s new in these devices and what sets them apart from the competition. The company will now gradually release the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus in most markets across the globe. It has confirmed the Moto G5 Plus release date for India via a Twitter post.


The official Twitter account for Moto India confirmed that the Moto G5 Plus is going to arrive in the country on March 15th. It hasn’t said anything about the smaller Moto G5 but it’s highly likely that it would be launched alongside the Moto G5 Plus on March 15 as well.

Even though it has confirmed when the handset is going to arrive, the company is yet to confirm how much it’s going to cost in local currency, but we’ll certainly receive that information in the days leading up to the release.

India is one of the largest markets for Motorola’s Moto G series so it goes without saying why the company is focusing on bringing this handset to India as soon as possible. It would be hoping that the design changes and improvement in specifications is enough to make customers in India pick up a Moto G5 Plus.
