The upcoming Moto G5 mid-range Android smartphone from Motorola could be launched at a lower price tag than the Moto G4’s launch price. This was revealed today by journalist Roland Quandt, who shared European pricing info for the upcoming smartphone.
According to Quandt, the Moto G5 base variant with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage will launch for 189 EUR in Europe, while the higher end variant with 3GB of RAM and the same 16GB of internal storage will retail for around 209 EUR. The Moto G4 for reference, had launched at 249 EUR in Europe last year. It should be a similar story in other regions as well, but we will of course wait until the end of the month for specific pricing details to be confirmed by Motorola.
The Moto G5 has been certified by the US FCC and is expected to be officially unveiled later this month at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona. Alongside the Moto G5, Motorola will also be announcing the Moto G5 Plus, which will succeed the Moto G4 Plus from last year.
Looks like Moto G5 will launch at much lower prices than G4 in Euroland: 2/16GB for ~189 Euro, 3/16GB for ~209 Euro. (was 249 for G4)
