Lenovo has recently sent out press invitations for the upcoming MWC 2017 tech show. Even though the company has not mentioned anything regarding the possible launch of the Moto G5 and G5 Plus, reports are rife that this will be happening in Barcelona this February.
The press invites included a smartphone and a “hellomoto” tagline, things that are enough to confirm that the company’s event will include the launch of a new smartphone (s). Now, according to the latest reports, not just the specs and features of the Moto G5 Plus have now been leaked out, but also the price. Given that the phone is coming to take the place of the Moto G4 Plus, we expected quite a number of similarities between the two and as it is, the leaks do not disappoint.
The Moto G5 Plus will come with a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass 4 protection. Under the hood, the phone will carry a Snapdragon 625 SoC, an octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz and is paired with a RAM of 4GB. There will be 32GB of internal storage with room to expand it via a microSD card. The camera will come with a 13MP lens on the back panel and a 5MP snapper on the front. The phone’s battery will be at 3080mAh, which is a mere 80mAh improvement over its predecessor.
Since it is a midrange phone, the Moto G5 Plus gets the luxury of keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack – a feature that is missing from the Moto Z lineup (apart from the Moto Z Play). Android Nougat will power the phone out of the box. There are about three color variants coming your way – Silver, Gold, and Black.
As for the price, the Moto G5 Plus will reportedly be available with a price tag of $300 across the globe. Interestingly, the leak claims that the same phone will be priced at about $220 in India (Rs 14999), but this is probably referring to the entry level Moto G5, whose details have remained scarce all throughout.
