Lenovo acquired Motorola is on the verge of unveiling the successor to its popular mid-range smartphone, the G5 at MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Spain on February 26 and the device has been rolling in the rumour train for quite a while now. Here’s what we know about the upcoming Moto G5.

The device will be made available in two different variants- A Moto G5, and a slightly more powerful G5 Plus. Both the devices are going to carry numerous performance and feature differences, with the size and the hardware. Let’s start with the G5 Plus.

Moto G5 Plus is expected to sport a 5.2-inch full-HD display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. For hardware, the device is also expected to be rocking Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

Moto G5, on the other hand, gets a smaller 5-inch full-HD display sporting a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The hardware setup is slightly cut down as well, with the device getting a Snapdragon 430 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space.

Both the devices are expected to sport an all-aluminium unibody design, similar to what we’ve seen on the Moto M.

For optics, the device is sporting a 12-megapixel shooter at the back with rapid-focus technology, along with a Sony sensor. The device also gets a 5-megapixel selfie camera for selfies at the front.

Moto G5 is expected to be powered by a 2800mAh battery, whereas the larger G5 Plus could get a decent 3000mAh battery. Both the devices are expected to be running on Android 7.0 Nougat right out-of-the-box with Moto’s custom vanilla skin on top.

The device will stand to compete against the likes of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4, Lenovo’s K6 Power, and Honor 6X.
