The Moto G5 Plus release date is not so far, but the phone will have a huge task of outdoing the impressive Moto G4 Plus that was launched last year.
The Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus have been praised as some of the best, if not the best, midrange phones out there. The two continued the legacy of the Moto G series, which is known for its ability to deliver impressively-designed phones that pack similarly impressive specs and features while at the same time keeping their prices within the little (financially) man’s reach.
Given that the Moto G5 Plus is the natural successor to the G4 Plus, fans of the latter will be expecting something special in order for them to shift right away, and as it looks, the design of the former will be part of this special thing.
As it is, the Moto G5 Plus will come with a metallic unibody design and keep the physical home button on which a fingerprint scanner should be mounted. The rear has a much changed and huge-looking camera module that just about takes after the Moto Z’s design. You also get a dual-tone LED flash to ensure photos remain clear even when in the dark.
Previous leaks have shown that the Moto G5 Plus will also be keeping the same 5.5-inch Full HD screen used on the G4 Plus, but there will be Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. This is expected, especially since the Moto G4 and G4 Plus have already been updated to the new OS. However, the processor steps up from the Snapdragon 617 used in the G4 series to a much better Snapdragon 625. This will be paired with a RAM of 4GB and have internal storage of 32GB.
As for the cameras, the Moto G5 Plus is rumored to be coming with a 13MP snapper on the back panel and a 5MP shooter for selfies. To keep the lights on, Lenovo is going for a 3080mAh battery, which is slightly bigger than the Moto G4 Plus.
If all goes well, we could see the Moto G5 Plus at the upcoming MWC 2017 event. Stay tuned.
