- Image suggest the G5 Plus will keep the fingerprint sensor on the front
- Specifications seem identical to the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus
- Leak also suggests a March 8 release for the devices
There has so far been very little information regarding Motorola’s followup to the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus smartphones. However, some alleged images of what could be the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus have surfaced on the Internet.
The images and specifications of the fifth generation Moto G devices were leaked online in the form of a screenshot posted by The Android Soul. The images show the front of the devices and are not clear enough to make out any notable difference from their fourth-gen counterparts. If the images are true, it seems like the Moto G5 Plus will keep the fingerprint sensor on the front while the Moto G5 will not get the sensor.
On the specifications front, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus seem to be identical, except the former will sport a 13-megapixel rear camera while the latter will get a 16-megapixel camera. With a 5.5-inch full-HD display, 5-megapixel front camera, and an octa-core processor for both the devices, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus sound incredibly similar to their predecessors. As always, until there’s an official confirmation, you should take all this with a pinch of salt.
Furthermore, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Pus will be offered with a 16GB storage, but only the Moto G5 Plus will get a 32GB variant as well. The screenshot also suggests Turbo Charging feature for both the devices.
As for the operating system, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are expected to launch with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. The Android 7.0 Nougat began rolling out for the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus in October. Meanwhile, the Android 7.1.1 has also begun rolling out to a few Android One users and is expected to roll out for Nexus and Pixel owners in the coming days.
Coming back to the Moto G5 and Moto G5 plus, the images and specs are among the first leaks on the devices that have appeared on the Internet, so it’s best to wait for additional confirmation before getting too excited. Lastly, the leak also suggests a March 8 release for the devices, and though the market for the devices is yet to be revealed, you can expect India to be on that list.
