Moto G5 plus was planned to be launched this year. It was earlier mistaken as Motorola’s new model of Moto X. But recently Moto G5 plus prototype is all over the internet.
It was rumoured earlier last year that Lenovo was planning on stimulating the Moto X line in 2017.The alleged render of the device is already leaking all over the Internet. However, a person selling a similar-looking phone is claiming that it’s actually the Moto G5 Plus.
According to Google reports, the person is selling the handset model on a Romanian website for 1,650 Romanian Leu which is around $388.35. The Moto G5 Plus looks similar to the Moto X renders from late last year. The only major difference in these two handsets is that it carries the Moto “batwing” logo on the top left corner in front of the device. The presence of this logo indicates that the device is a prototype and not a real one, that the person is selling.
The Moto G5 Plus is expected to have a metallic body. The edges of the model are curved for ergonomics. The camera module overhangs out of the device at the back. The camera prototype design is also similar to the ones found on the Moto Z line. The fingerprint sensor up front is also quite large and oblong instead of being small and square.
The device is expected to come with a 5.5-inch 1080p full HD display which is similar to last year’s Moto G4 Plus. Talking about the internal structures, the Moto G5 Plus is powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It will also have a 3,080 mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP front-facing camera.
The real disappointing part about the Moto G5 Plus model is that it still comes with a microUSB port for charging/data transfers instead of USB Type-C, which most of the phones nowadays have. However, the best part is it will run on Android 7.0 Nougat, with out of the box features.
The company has not announced the launch of Moto G5 Plus. However, according to the seller from the Romanian website the device will be out by March 2017. The Moto G4 plus was released last year, May. With all the success that Moto G4 plus has brought in, the Moto G5 plus is also expected to be a huge success.
