Motorola Mobility today announces the availability of moto x4 and moto g5S plus in Singapore. The moto x4 (Super Black and Sterling Blue) will be retailed at S$599 and moto g5S plus (Lunar Gray and Blush Gold) at S$499. Both are available from 29th November 2017.
With the pricing, they are in direct competition with OPPO’s latest smartphones. However, I feel that the designs are a little dated. I have yet to see the actual units so I will leave my comments as such. Here are the technical specifications.
