New Delhi: With an aim to meet users' entertainment needs with big battery and screen, Lenovo-owned Motorola on Tuesday launched two smartphones - Moto E5 Plus and E5 - in India.

With a reflective wave pattern and a curved back design, E5 Plus packs a 'Max Vision' screen and comes with a massive 5000mAh battery that gives users the power to enjoy up to 18 hours of video playback, over 200 hours of music playback or more than 20 hours of non-stop web surfing, the company said.

"India has the largest online content consumption market which is one of the many reasons we're bringing a big battery and a big screen on the Moto E5 Plus," a Motorola spokesperson told reporters here.

The device is available on Amazon.in and at over 600 Moto Hub stores in "Fine Gold" and "Black" colour variants for Rs 11999.

There is a 12MP camera with large, 1.25um pixels and laser autofocus with a dedicated microSD Card slot.

"The intuitive Moto 'Experiences' in E5 Plus make the phone better to use along with Moto 'Actions'. 'Moto Display' gives you a quick preview of notifications and updates so that you can see what's going on without unlocking your phone," the company said.

The device can be unlocked instantly with the fingerprint reader located at the back of the phone in the Moto "batwings" logo mark.

Meanwhile, Moto E5 comes with a 4000mAh battery, 13MP PDAF camera and an extra microSD card slot.

There is Rs 800 discount on SBI bank credit cards on Amazon.in and an additional Rs 1,000 off on exchange of old smartphone for Moto E5 Plus buyers.

Moto E5 with 5.7-inch Max Vision display gives users an expansive view, while the 4000mAh battery allows up to 14 hours usage on single charge.
