Everyone loves a bargain, and Motorola’s new line-up has one particularly special entrant that gives you more 5G bang for your buck. It’s the Motorola Moto G 5G Plus: big screen, big power, small price tag.

Hello, Moto

The Motorola Moto G 5G Plus is the latest in a line-up of 5G-capable devices from Moto, and it has more bang for buck than you realise! At just $499 on Telstra, the Moto G 5G Plus is one of the most cost-effective ways out there to get started with Australia’s best 5G. And on top of 5G, it also has power elsewhere to spare.

At first glance, you’ll be struck by an excellent design and a 6.7-inch CinemaVision display. Backed up by a holepunch selfie camera; notchless design and a 90Hz refresh rate, it’s an uninterrupted, buttery-smooth viewing experience that makes games, movies and apps look unreal.

Any content on the Moto G 5G Plus will also look great, thanks to the addition of four great rear-facing cameras on the back.

This includes a 48-megapixel camera; a 5-megapixel Macro Vision camera for the ultra-close ups; a 2-megapixel depth camera for better Bokeh and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera with 118 degree angle.

The hardware is backed up by Motorola’s clever camera software designed to make capturing the best shot easier than ever. The software features automatic smile detection; HDR; manual, and portrait mode to name a few.

And you’ll be going and going with the new Moto entrant thanks to a 5000mAh battery that lets you go for up to two days*. And with 20W Turbopower fast charging, you’ll be back on the road in a snap.

Speaking of snap: you’ve got the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 chipset at the centre of your Moto G 5G Plus experience, powering your games and apps more affordably than ever.

The Moto G also packs in features missing on other higher-end smartphones, such as a 3.5mm headphone jack to bring your favourite pair of ‘phones to the party, and expandable microSD storage up to 1TB.


We’ll be carrying the Moto G 5G Plus from 10 November on our flexible consumer mobile plans.

It’s available on a 24-month payment term as an add-on to our month-to-month plans. The Moto G 5G Plus retails at $499. That’s $20.79 a month over 24 months (min. cost $499 over 24 months plus chosen plan costs).

Keep an eye out for our unboxing and hands on impressions of the Motorola Moto G 5G Plus closer to launch day!
