After a couple of leaks of a device claiming to be the Moto X (2017), spotted last month, everything was made clear: the smartphone was actually the Motorola Moto G5 Plus, the successor of last year’s Moto G4 Plus, one of the Lenovo-owned manufacturer’s mid-range models.
The handset spotted in these images is actually a prototype, but it should pretty much resemble the consumer edition, so we can make an idea about what we should expect from it next month, since it should make its debut during the Mobile World Congress, in Barcelona.
As for the specs, the Moto G5 Plus is said to come with a 5.5″ display, rocking a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, while under the hood it should pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chipset, alongside 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of on-board storage – most likely expandable, using a microSD card – and finally, a 3080 mAh battery, keeping the lights on.
In terms of camera, the leaks are pointing to a 13 MP snapper on the back, teaming up with a 5 MP front-facing unit, which is basically a standard setup for a lot of mid-range models nowadays.
But the spec sheet doesn’t stop here, since Motorola’s Moto G5 Plus will also sport a fingerprint scanner on the front, hidden under the physical home button, and the latest addition to Google’s dessert line-up, Android 7.0 Nougat, probably as close to stock as possible.
The price wasn’t announced, but this prototype is available for around $387, which should help us make an idea about the retail price.
