Lenovo-owned Motorola is all set to take the wraps off its next generation of budget-centric smartphone, the G5, at the Mobile World Congress 2017. The device is already subjected to various rounds of leaks, and the latest leaked image of the upcoming G5 shows the front and back panel in full glory.
As spotted by PhoneArena, the hands-on photos of the device show that it will come with a metal back and a removable battery. This is somewhat similar to what we have seen in Lenovo K5 Plus, which has a removable aluminium back panel as well. The device is said to be a tad bit smaller than the Plus model and will come with a 5-inch full HD display. To give you a better perspective, the G4 features a 5.5-inch full HD display.
Meanwhile, the device has paved a visit on the Geekbench listing, which reveals some key specs of the device. To start with, the listing shows that it will come with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed and will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8937 processor, which is better known as Snapdragon 430. This is line with a previous rumour that supported the fact that it will come with 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM variant.
Meanwhile, a renowned tipster Rolan Quandt revealed the European pricing of the G5 smartphone and stated that the 2GB variant will come with a price tag of EUR 189 (approx. Rs 13,450), while 3GB RAM variant will probably cost EUR 209 which translates to about Rs 15,000. To compare, the Moto G4 3GB RAM variant was priced at EUR 249 last year.
The company will also launch the Plus variant of the Moto G5 and it is reported that it will pack in a Snapdragon 625 chipset along with a 12-megapixel primary camera at the back. Interestingly, a previous listing also 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.
