Moto G5 and G5 Plus countdown started on official website

Moto has started teasing about its upcoming event at the side lines of MWC 2017 in Barcelona later this month. The company‘s website is currently hosting a strange countdown set for 20 days and a few hours to go – probably pointing towards the company’s February 26 event just ahead of the MWC trade shows.

The website also includes a golden octopus with absolutely no indication as to what it signifies. The Moto logo can be found housed at the centre with the octopus weaved around it. The countdown most probably a teaser for the launch of the much awaited Moto G5 and the Moto G5 PLUS.

A recent report claimed that the Moto G5 will be going in sale shortly after the event and the countdown could be eventually set for that. Yet,there is no official conformation from the company.
