Motorola recently launched the Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus globally but the device was only made available in a few European countries. Earlier there were reports that the company might launch the device in India in October during the festive season in India. However, it seems there's an early Diwali for Moto fans.
The company will be launching its first dual lens camera phone tomorrow and will be selling the device exclusively on Amazon. There is no mention of price yet but the e-commerce giant has already listed it on their site with all highlights of the device.
This will Motorola's first device that will feature a dual camera. However, rest of the device is much similar to the popular Moto G5 Plus which has earned itself a commendable reputation for its camera. The frame is pretty much the same and even the processor.
