Motorola has announced two new smartphones in G Series, 2 days ago. Moto G5S and G5S Plus, which is nothing but upgraded version of G5 and G5 Plus. Now, seeing the specifications of these two new phones, it doesn’t seem that Motorola was really planning to bring something new to its customer, except for the camera improvements and bigger display.
Talking about the G5S, which is basically an upgrade of Moto G5 (launched in February this year), the device gets a 5.2 inch full HD IPS Display (little larger than its previous version). As far as the processor is concerned, the G5S gets the same Snapdragon 430 Octa-Core chipset, but this time the device comes only in 3GB RAM variant, unlike G5, which comes in both 2GB and 3GB variant.
Coming to G5S Plus, which is now an upgrade of Moto G5 Plus, and holds a 5.5 inch full HD IPS display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Now, again this device gets the same processor as G5 Plus, which is Snapdragon 625 Octa-Core chipset with 3/4 GB of RAM and 32/64GB of internal storage.
Now, when it comes to upgrades, we notice that the G5S and G5S Plus have an improved rear camera (16MP and 13MP respectively) and front camera (5MP and 8MP respectively). These both device now run on Android 7.1 out of the box. Additionally, these both devices have a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, 3,000mAh battery with fast charging support.
The devices as of now available in two color variants, Lunar Gray, Fine Gold. As per as current reports, both devices are available for pre-order on Amazon and the shipping will start from August 18th. G5S gets a price tag of €249 while the G5S Plus gets €299.
