March 2, 2017 by

"Enter Moto G⁵ and Moto G⁵ Plus– the fifth generation of the Moto G family. Once again, we’re offering premium features for all. And this time, it comes with a metal design and striking new look. Power, value — and now beauty. An unexpected combination, because different is better."

Key Features:

  • Precision-crafted metal design - The first Moto G phone made from high-grade aluminium, that's been diamond cut and finished to perfection. It looks as great as it performs. Moto G also uses a water-repellent coating to protect your phone inside and out.

  • Fast octa-core processor - Enjoy smooth performance and stay entertained on the go with a 1.4 GHz octa-core processor. Powerful graphics capabilities, and support for 4G LTE, the Moto G lets you play video, games, and music on the go. Apps and video run smoothly without slowing down. And browse the Web or stream music at lightning fast speed.

  • Outstanding cameras - Take beautiful photos with the fast-focusing 13 MP camera, or switch views for a wide-angle group selfie. Whether you're a weekend photographer or a seasoned pro, Moto G includes camera software like Best Shot and Professional Mode that makes taking great pictures easier than ever. Plus, give any photo a personal touch with the Google Photos™ app.

  • All-day battery and rapid charging - Go a full day on a single charge of the 2800 mAh battery - morning to night without plugging in. Moto G comes with a 10W rapid charger, which gives your phone hours of battery life in just minutes of charging.

  • Moto Experiences - Get shortcuts to the features you use most, like turning on the camera with a twist of your wrist. Instantly unlock your phone with your fingerprint. Or, read notifications without having to unlock your phone.
