Moto G5 Plus Specs and Release Date details surface online


Motorola is expected to release the upcoming Moto G5 Plus sometime in March. Now a new set of leaks have revealed the full specs and renders of the smartphone. Moreover, the listing also notes that the phone is yet available for sale in the market, but should go on sale in March 2017.

The leak comes via an OLX user in Romania, who apparently sold the Moto G5 Plus for a price of $387. The user listing has also revealed key specs and live images of the Moto G5 Plus bearing the model number XT1685.

For obvious reasons, the post has been taken down but the commotion of the sold Moto G5 Plus has also been spotted on Reddit. Notably, the phone carried the “Motorola confidential property, not for sale” logo at the bottom of the display, which clearly suggests that the device in question was intended for testing purposes. It could indeed be a prototype of the upcoming Moto G5 Plus.

Going by the leaked images, the smartphone’s design looks very similar to the rumored Moto X 2017. Just last week, renders of the Moto X 2017 surfaced on the web. And the two devices look strikingly similar from the placement of the volume rockers and power button, to the microUSB port and the primary camera module.

Moto G5 Plus: Leaked Specs and Features

As per the leaked listing, the Moto G5 Plus is expected to get a 5.5-inch Full HD display. Under the hood, the smartphone is said to get powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor bundled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage.

Opticss on the smartphone are said to include a 13MP primary camera along with a 5MP front facing shooter for selfies. In terms of OS, the upcoming Moto G5 Plus is said to run Android Nougat 7.0 out-of-the-box. Besides, the smartphone is also said to pack a fingerprint sensor.

As for the March release mentioned in the leak, we’re not convinced as last year’s Moto G4 and G4 Plus last year around May. But who knows, Lenovo-owned Motorola can change things around this year to increase sales volume.

Moto X 2017 renders also leaked in a video

Motorola has already confirmed that the Moto X range is still alive and well. And a new CAD render video obtained by credible smartphone tipster @OnLeak shows that a brand new Moto X is also on the cards for 2017.
