Lenovo-owned Motorola Mobility launched the Moto G51 5G phone in India on Friday, December 10th. This is clearly Motorola’s answer to Xiaomi’s recently launched Redmi Note 11T 5G. Motorola seems to be undercutting Xiaomi with a very competitive spec-sheet including a faster 120Hz display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 Plus chip, support for more 5G bands, and a triple camera setup. Motorola is undercutting Xiaomi in pricing, too, as the Moto G51 costs only Rs 14,999.
