Moto G31 lands in India with MediaTek Helio G85, a 50MP main camera and a 5,000mAh battery

A couple of weeks ago, Motorola unveiled a slew of budget-friendly phones under its Moto G series in Europe. Today the Lenovo-owned company is bringing one of them to India: the Moto G31. The new model succeeds the Moto G30 that came out earlier this year though it doesn’t have a lot to offer in terms of upgrades and improvements beyond a new camera sensor and a more vibrant screen.
