Motorola prices the G5 and G5 Plus for Australia
Motorola’s newest handsets are now available with pricing starting at $299.
While it formally used Mobile World Congress 2017 to launch the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, the essential details of Lenovo’s latest mid-range phones had leaked some weeks prior to the event.
That left the only remaining questions around the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus being when we’d see them down under, and for how much.
In Europe, the recommended pricing for the G5 and G5 Plus was announced at launch as 199 and 279 Euro respectively, which at current exchange rates and allowing for GST should suggest pricing at around $320 for the G5 and $450 for the G5 Plus.
We’ll actually pay $299 for the G5 and either $399 for the G5 Plus with 3GB RAM/16GB ROM or $449 for the 4GB RAM/32GB ROM variant, with availability from today either through Motorola’s local web site or from Harvey Norman, Good Guys or Officeworks stores.
If you’re keen on a contract phone, Moto has no particular plans at this time to secure an Australian telco partner for these particular phones, although they are Voice over LTE (VoLTE) enabled for use on the Vodafone network out of the box.
