It wasn’t a secret that Lenovo is planning to unveil its new Moto G5 and G5 Plus mid-rangers during this month’s MWC, in Barcelona, but in order to make things even clearer, we got the chance to see pretty much everything about these two new handsets, thanks to the latest leaks!
A Spanish retailer accidentally listed up the two models earlier today, for a short while, so we can say that there’s nothing left unknown about the Moto G5 and G5 Plus.

Therefore, the G5 Plus will actually be the most powerful of the two, featuring a full HD 5.2″ display, covered by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, and rocking a Snapdragon 625 chip under the hood, alongside 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, expandable, thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot.
The handset has a 12 MP camera on the back, with dual auto focus, while the selfie unit is represented by a 5 MP sensor.
Moving on, we have a 3000 mAh battery, with support for TurboPower charging, Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, and a few more goodies, like NFC, a fingerprint scanner, housed by the physical home button, and a water repellent coating.
The Moto G5, on the other side, comes with a smaller display, measuring 5.0 inches and with the same full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The differences continue in terms of hardware, as it’s powered by a Snapdragon 430 chip, as well as 2 GB of RAM, while the storage capacity counts just 32 GB. Fortunately, the microSD card slot is present, so you can expand the latter.
Completing the spec sheet are a 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing shooter, a 2800 mAh battery with 10W rapid charging, the fingerprint scanner present on its bigger brother, and, of course, the water repellent coating.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t have an NFC chip, but it does come with Google’s latest OS, Android 7.0 Nougat as well.
Both smartphones have a “precision-crafted” aluminum design, with two different finishes, Lunar Grey and Fine Gold. Also, a tiny, but interesting detail is the Lenovo logo on the side, a first for the Chinese manufacturer.
