Moto G5

All eyes are on Motorola as it prepares to launch the much-anticipated Moto M, but this hasn’t stopped the tech giant from getting the 2017 Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus ready.

The 2016 Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are two great phones from the Lenovo-owned company that debuted a new 5.5-invh screen size for the Moto G series. Apparently, the Chinese-owned entity is not about to change a thing as far as the display size of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are concerned.

Images of the two Moto G5 handsets have surfaced alongside a bunch of specs and features that are expected to be included on the handset. Other than confirming that there won’t be any changes as far as the screen is concerned, the images also show off an almost similar design language as to the Moto G4 and G4 Plus.

Apparently, the Moto G5 Plus will come with a front-mounted fingerprint scanner that is square shaped and located just below the screen, a feature that won’t be available on the standard G5. As noted earlier, the screens will remain at 5.5 inches and both Moto G5 models will have a Full HD resolution, just like their predecessors. Lenovo will reportedly ship the two Moto G handsets with octa-core processors on board.

In terms of photography, the base model Moto G5 will carry a 13MP snapper on the back while the high-end Moto G5 Plus will include a better 16MP sensor. As for the front cameras, there is still no word, but both could have at least 5MP. In terms of storage, the Moto G5 will have one storage option of 16GB while the Moto G5 Plus will support 16GB and 32GB storage. Expect both handsets to support microSD card storage as well as turbo charging.

The Moto G4 and G4 Plus are part of the new Android Nougat update and as such, the 2017 Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus should come preinstalled with this OS out of the box. Given that the former debuted in May this year, the story could be the same for the upcoming Moto G5 models, or slightly earlier than this date.

Keep in mind that these reports are based on rumors and speculations and as such, take them with a grain of salt. But we’ll keep knocking the door for more details about the two. Keep following us!
