Expected to officially debut at Mobile World Congress 2017 on February 26th the Lenovo-made Moto G5 seems to be one of the best known phones waiting for its premiere. Rolling in the rumor train for quite a long time, today the phone popped the net one more time, unveiling a pretty complete list of specs and features. To make the first impression even stronger the leak comes backed up with a series of photos presenting the device in its whole beauty.
Ahead the MWC in Barcelona, dealers already unveil official images of the Moto G5 accompanied with a complete list of specs.
Planned to be announced at MWC 2017 in Spain the Moto G5 has no more secrets (perhaps except for its pricing details). More than a week ahead its official unveiling phone dealers started to post full details concerning the handset. According to the materials, the Moto G5 will be accessible in two variants: the standard Moto G5, and a bit more powerful G5 Plus. Although both devices will speak aluminum design language, feature a fingerprint scanner and 4G LTE and NFC support, they will differ in terms of performance, size and hardware.
To begin with the Moto G5, the phone will arrive with a 5-inch full-HD display protected by Gorilla Glass 3 featuring 1920x1080p of resolution. Powered by an 1.4GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 the phone sports 3GB RAM and 32GB of built-in expandable storage. Such processing parameters should deliver smooth performance of the Android 7.0 Nougat the device runs on out of box. As for optics, they’re come represented by a combination of 13MP and 5MP rear and front snappers, while a 2,800 mAh removable battery equipped with rapid charging keeps the whole thing ticking.
Moto G5 Plus
Moving on to the bigger and slightly better-specced Moto G5 Plus, the phablet doesn’t only house a bigger 5.2-inch full-HD Gorilla Glass 3-covered screen panel, but also works on a more powerful 2.GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor complete with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage expandable via microSD cards. In the field of optics, the handset offers a 12MP primary camera with Sony-made lenses and rapid-autofocus tech, whereas a 5MP front-facing shooter is in charge of decent selfies. The G5 Plus, just as its smaller sibling, runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. The phone pretty large screen requires more efficient battery, therefore it is kept alive by a 3,000 mAh removable cell incorporating fast charging technology.
Judging by the presented above specs, both phones are nothing more than solid mid-rangers. However, they are strong enough to endanger the Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4, Lenovo’s K6 Power, or even the Honor 6X. Their chances to conquer the budget sector are even stronger if Lenovo tags them with competitively low pricing, which frankly speaking we can be pretty sure of as the G line is known for delivering affordable phones. Both devices will debut dressed in grey and gold color options.
