The Lenovo-owned Motorola is set to unveil its new ‘budget friendly’ phone – Moto E5 Plus – in India on Tuesday.
With the new phone’s launch, the company is aiming to take on other smartphone makers in the budget segment such as Xiaomi.
The phone will be available on Amazon in India, and ‘Notify me’ page is already live on the e-commerce site. You can also buy it through Moto Hub stores offline.
In April, the phone was launched in Brazil, alongside the Moto E5, Moto E5 Play, and Moto G6 series.
The company will announce its price, release date, and launch offer details at the event.
The specifications and features of the Moto E5 Plus expected to be same as of the one launched in Brazil. However, there will be slight changes to accommodate Indian customers.
Ahead of India launch, the company released teasers hinting at a smartphone with big battery and display.
One of the key highlights of the Moto E5 Plus will be its massive 5000mAh battery with fast charging support and a polymer glass back panel.
The phone will be available in two colour variants – Black and gold – and sports a 6-inch HD+ (720x1440 pixels) IPS LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.
The Moto E5 Plus runs Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor, paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage which is expandable up to 128GB. The company also provides a fingerprint scanner on the back.
The Moto E5 Plus sports a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and has features such as laser autofocus, PDAF, and an LED flash. The front shooter is 8-megapixel with f/2.2 aperture and a selfie light.
As for connectivity, the phone will come with 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n with hotspot and Bluetooth 4.2 LE.
As of now, the company is yet to announce the price, but considering the competition and pricing in the budget segment, the phone may be priced between Rs 10,000 and Rs 13,000.
