Last month, Lenovo-owned Motorola launched its mid-range Moto G5S Plus smartphone in the US market. As part of the launch offer, Motorola was offering a $50 discount on the handset, bringing its price down to $229.99. The promotional offer came to an end on the 29th of last month. However, Motorola is now back with the same offer, and this time it will come to an end on the 14th, i.e. this coming Saturday. In case you miss the deal this time as well, you will need to pay $279.99 for the handset from this Sunday onwards.
Motorola is offering an identical discount on the 64GB variant as well, which carries a price tag of $349.99 in the US. If you place your order till October 14th, you can get the 64GB Moto G5S Plus for $299.99. The universally unlocked variant sold by Motorola is compatible with all major US carriers such as Verizon Wireless, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Consumer Cellular.
The Moto G5S Plus features a 5.5-inch Full HD display with 401 PPI pixel density and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. Running under the hood is Qualcomm’s most popular mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 625. As we mentioned above already, the Moto G5S Plus comes in two storage variants – 32GB and 64GB. The 32GB model is equipped with 3GB of RAM, while the 64GB storage model packs 4GB of RAM. You also get a microSD card slot, allowing further expansion by up to 128GB.
