Motorola launches Moto G 5G with 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 750G in India
Motorola has been on a mission to recapture the mid-range segment in the Indian smartphone market. Since last year, they have launched many competitively priced devices in the country, including the Moto G8 Plus, Motorola One Fusion+, and the Moto G9. Now the focus is on building a 5G-ready portfolio and after launching the Motorola Edge+ and the Razr 5G earlier, the company is launching a 5G mid-ranger in India, even without the availability of a 5G network. Motorola has announced the Moto G 5G in India and this is the first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 750G to be launched in this country.
The Moto G 5G comes 6.7-inch hole-punch LCD display with a Full HD+ resolution. The display has a refresh rate of 60Hz and is certified for HDR10. Inside the hole-punch cutout resides a 16MP selfie camera. On the back, the Moto G 5G features a triple camera setup in a square-shaped camera bump. These cameras include a primary 48MP camera with the Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide camera with a 118° wide field of view, and just like the One Macro — a 2MP macro camera with autofocus.
Unlike the global variant of the Moto G 5G that comes with 4GB RAM, the Indian variant features 6GB RAM. The storage, too, has been doubled from 64GB to 128GB especially for the Indian market. The phone packs in a 5000mAh battery with support for 20W fast charging.
Software-wise, the Moto G 5G comes with a stock Android user interface with Android 10 out-of-the-box. The phone has been promised to be upgraded to Android 11 soon but the company has not made any promise for updates beyond that. Even though the Moto G 5G is not part of Google’s Android One program — like some of older Motorola devices, it features a dedicated button for Google Assistant.

The Moto G 5G will be available in India starting December 7th for ₹20,999 (~$285) via Flipkart. HDFC card users will be able to avail of an instant discount of ₹1,000 with their purchase via Flipkart.
