Press Image of Moto G5 Plus Surfaces?

Specification details of the Moto G5 surfaced a few days ago alongside some images and a possible pricing. Today another image of the upcoming phone has leaked online.

The image is said to be a press shot of the Moto G5. Lenovo/Moto is going for a Moto Z kind of look which is evident from the camera design. Though the glass is all metal and not black which is nice as the Moto Z is a fingerprint magnet.

Another notable difference is the fingerprint scanner. The Moto G5 plus ditches the square scanner for one that is pill-shaped. It also appears that the SIM tray has also been moved to the top as a groove with a hole can be seen on the top left part of the phone. The Moto G5 plus still has the rounded corners but the rear doesn’t curve to meet the metal frame anymore.

One thing we are actually quite disappointed about is the Snapdragon 625 processor that is said to be present in the phone. It is not a bad processor but considering the fact that the Snapdragon 653 and 626 have already been announced since last year, we expected the Moto G5 to sport either of the newer chips. The Moto G4 Plus from last year was no different as it launched with the Snapdragon 617 processor released back in 2015.

The Moto G5 Plus will retain the 5.5-inch 1080p display from last year. The RAM will be 4GB and ROM will be 32GB, though there is a possibility of other RAM and ROM variants. The battery has been slightly bumped up to 3080mAh, and there is Android 7.0 out of the box. The Moto G5 Plus is said to be about $387, but with that price tag you are better off buying the OnePlus 3.
