Lenovo’s Moto G5 and G5 Plus leaked ahead of MWC launch

By : |February 16, 2017 0

Barely ten days before their much-anticipated unveiling at Mobile World Congress 2017, full pics and specifications of Lenovo’s upcoming Moto G5 and G5 Plus phones were accidentally posted by e-tailer Ktronix in listings that have now been pulled down.

First reported by Venture Beat, the leaks show that the upcoming Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are smaller than their predecessors and will indeed sport metal bodies with Lenovo branding on the side panels.

The front panel of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus can be seen featuring a fingerprint scanner, which has been part of previous leaks as well, while the primary camera can be seen in the circular design at the back. The legendary Moto “M” logo is embossed on the back as well.

Surprisingly, the 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processors that were deployed in the Moto lineup last year has been replaced with the improved, 2.0 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 (G5 Plus) and 1.4 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 (G5). Both the devices pack 2 GB of RAM, and while the G5 has 32 GB of internal storage, the Plus model will let you save 64 GB worth of data.

On the battery front, the G5 Plus has the same 3,000 mAh battery as last year, while G5 will pack a 2,800 mAh one. Rear cameras are the only other point of differentiation between the two with the G5 packing a 13-megapixel phase-detect autofocus sensor as opposed to a 12-megapixel, dual autofocus one on the Plus. Both the devices have the same, 5 MP front snapper.

Lenovo would be presenting the Moto G5 launch alongside Moto G5 Plus smartphones at its February 26 event at the sidelines of MWC 2017 in Barcelona. So keep checking this space for further updates on this.
