The Moto G5 will be coming to Canada this spring and the Lenovo-owned brand already launched a Canadian website promoting the company's latest mid-range smartphone. The 5-inch handset is currently slated to be released in Canada in late spring, MobileSyrup reports. No further details on its launch window have yet been given, meaning the Moto G5 may hit the Canadian market as late as the second half of June. Consumers in the country hopefully won't have to wait that long, but in any case, more details on the Canadian availability of the Moto G5 will likely be provided shortly. The company confirmed that the European price of the device will start at €199, which translates to approximately $275 CAD. Naturally, if the Moto G5's predecessors are any indication, the Canadian price probably won't be a direct conversion of the European one, but the device should still be relatively inexpensive to acquire. For added context, the base model will be sold for $229 in the United States, which amounts to around $300 CAD.
On a related note, it seems like the 5.2-inch Moto G5 Plus won't be making its way to Canada anytime soon seeing how the Lenovo-owned phone maker announced that the larger sibling of the Moto G5 will be sold exclusively in the United States. There's still no word on whether that plan is a permanent one or not, but as things stand right now, Canadians looking to purchase the Moto G5 Plus probably won't be able to do that directly from their retailers and wireless carriers for the time being. The company's representative hinted as much while speaking to MobileSyrup earlier today, saying that there's currently "no confirmation" that the phone will make its way to the country at any point in the future.
On a brighter note, the Moto G5 model that launches in Canada will likely boast NFC support, as recent reports suggest that only the U.S. variant of the device won't ship with this feature. In any case, Canadian consumers on the lookout for a smartphone that offers good value for money will probably want to take a look at the Moto G5 once the smartphone hits the market this spring.
