It comes on the sidelines of the press conference held by the company to launch its new moto G5.
The fifth-generation Moto G has an impressive metal design that looks as great as it performs. The Moto G5 smart phone is available in lunar grey or fine gold, and its sleek aluminium design speaks to consumer preferences as they can choose between plastic, metal, and glass.
