Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched yet another handset from its Moto G-series. This time, it's the Moto G5s Plus — an improvised version of Moto G5 Plus that was released in April.
The new device has rich features — especially the camera — but handsets like Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo K8 Note may pose a strong challenge to it in Indian market.
Moto G5s Plus is priced at Rs 14,999 for the 32GB variant and Rs 15,999 for 64GB in India, which means it will take on the Xiaomi Redmi Note that comes with a price tag of Rs 10,999 for the 3GB RAM+32GB storage model and Rs 12,999 for the 4GB RAM+64GB.
Another smartphone that can give it a run for its money is the Lenovo K8 Note, which is priced at Rs 12,999 for the 3GB RAM+32GB storage model and Rs 13,999 for the 4GB RAM+64GB storage variant.
