Lenovo’s Moto G5 is yet another smartphone which has been on our rumour list and it is yet another smartphone which will be unveiled at the upcoming MWC 2017. Although a lot of rumours from various sources have surfaced online so far, Evan Blass (@eveleaks) from Venture Beat has now spotted the promotional image render of both Moto G5 and G5 Plus along with some specifications which seem to be reliable given Blass’s reputation in the leak game. Both the smartphones were first listed on an e-retailer named ‘Ktronix’ listing most of the specs as well.
As per the listing, Moto G5 will come with a 5.0-inch Full HD display while Moto G5 Plus will boast a 5.2-inch Full HD display. This is in contrary to the Moto G4 and Moto G3 smartphones, both of which came with a 5.5-inch display size.
Talking about some other specifications, the Moto G5 will be powered by Snapdragon 430 processor and will come with a 13-megapixel at the back. On the other hand, Moto G5 Plus will pack in a Snapdragon 625 chipset along with a 12-megapixel primary camera at the back. Interestingly, the listing revealed 2GB RAM on both the smartphones coupled with 64GB of internal storage. Adding to this, a previous report from Weibo claimed that the Moto G5 Plus will sport a Sony IMX362 sensor inside its primary 12-megapixel camera module.
Meanwhile, another tipster, Roland Quandt recently revealed that the new Moto G series smartphones will be out for sale just after the Mobile World Congress which takes place later this month. He also released the tentative pricing of the regular Moto G5 at EUR 189 (approx. Rs 13,450) for the 2GB RAM variant, EUR 209 for the 3GB RAM variant which translates to about Rs 15,000. To compare, the Moto G4 3GB RAM variant was priced at EUR 249 last year, however, the India pricing for the new Moto G5 is expected to be lower than what has been revealed for Europe.
