Motorola s first Moto G smartphone arrived in India back in 2014 as a Flipkart exclusive device. Motorola then expanded the reach by having the Moto G4 series available on other platforms. The celebrations on Twitter show the bringing back of the Moto G series as a Flipkart exclusive device again. There is no mention of the Moto G5 launching, but there is a high possibility that Motorola could unveil it the very same day or soon enough. Why so, because even last year Motorola had first launched the G4 Plus and then the Moto G4 the following month.
