Motorola announced this Thursday the launch of its latest moto g 5G plus in Brazil, the first smartphone of the moto g category with 5G technology.

Available as of today, the smartphone will be sold exclusively by the carrier Claro. The device is now compatible only with Claro’s 5G DSS network and will work on future frequencies of 5G technology that will be implemented in the country, through the 5G auction by the Brazilian telecommunications agency (Anatel) in 2021.
