Lenovo’s Moto G5 and G5 plus have been planned for a release on February 26. And there have been a lot of leaks telling us what to expect. Now a set of live images have leaked that suggest that the Moto G5 plus will sport a metal rear panel giving an idea that the smartphone will have a unibody display. Another leaked image had shown Moto G5 with its screen turned on that may be a tester unit.
The rear panel images show a circular design for the camera sensor while Moto’s logo will be placed in the middle. Another image shows the front screen, that confirms the presence of a physical button below the display. The leaked image shows the Moto G5 operating on some stock Android version with some Moto software tweaks.
With so many leaks we have a rough idea about what the Moto G5 plus is going to be. It is expected to have a 5.2-inch display and it will be powered by a 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor. The battery will be 3000 mAh with Turbo Power charging technology for quick charging. The RAM is supposed to be 4GB with 32GB internal storage. The Moto G5 plus will most probably run on Android Nougat 7.0 and have a 12 megapixels camera, fingerprint reader and NFC. Some Moto related features will be Moto Assist, Moto Actions, and Moto Display.
In addition to Moto G5 plus, Moto G5 is also scheduled for a release next month. It is rumored to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. It is supposed to have 2 GB RAM with 32 GB internal storage that will be expandable. The display will be 5 inch and full HD. The rear camera will be 13 MP and the front camera will be 5 MP. It will be powered by a 2800 mAh battery.
The official launch of Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus is scheduled for 26 February and we all are excited to see what more is in store.
Now Lenovo owned mobile phone makes Motorola has been known for its G series. The mid-tier smartphones are knowns for the value for money and their clean and almost bloat-free software. The next phone in the series – the Lenovo Moto G5 – just leaked on a second-hand product selling site OLX.
The listing has been taken down since, but 9To5Google has reported about the device specs and some images of the upcoming Lenovo phone.
As the leak suggests, the Moto G5 will run on Snapdragon 625 processor and 4 GB RAM. To complement the RAM and processor, the phone will come with 32 GB of onboard storage and an expansion slot to insert microSD cards.
Just like last year, The G5 will have a 5.5″ 1080p display and an almost same capacity 3080mAh battery. Surprisingly, Lenovo is not jumping on board with USB-C ports this time as the phone comes with Micro USB port and a standard 3.5mm audio jack.
Apart from the above specs, the phone will have a 13 Megapixel rear autofocus camera and a 5 MP front camera for selfies. Regarding design, the phone borrows some elements from the company’s flagship Moto Z line with a circular flat tire camera bump and almost flat back except there is no fingerprint sensor on the back and it has a curve on the sides.
While Moto Z phones have been known for their modular features, it looks like none of the modularity features will be coming to the G5 as the phone has no pins on the back of the phone to connect with mods even through the camera bump is very similar to the Moto Z.
The device seller has marked March 2017 as the availability date so maybe the phones are coming sooner than we expected.
