by Anvinraj Valiyathara 2

The Moto G5 Plus is expected to debut on Feb. 26 through a pre-event of Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017. The rumor mill is consistently revealing more information on the purported specs of the Motorola phone. Now, another leaked photo has surfaced to reveal its marvelous rear camera design.

A new leaked shot of the rear panel of the Lenovo Moto G5 Plus has surfaced. It appears to be same as its leaked photo that came up at the beginning of January. As previous rumors have stated, the new image also suggests that the device will be coming with a plastic chassis with metallic appeal. At the center, the usual Moto batwing logo.

Like it is seen on Moto Z, the Moto G5 Plus also features a dedicated round-shaped housing for the rear camera. It is expected to come with f/1.7 aperture 12-megapixel Rapid Focus camera enabled with Sony IMX 362 sensor. Rumors hint that it will be accompanied with usual features such as dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus, laser autofocus and 4K video shooting.

Instead of the 5.5-inch display present on Moto G4 Plus, the Moto G5 Plus is expected to house a smaller 5.2-inch screen. The device will be powered by 2.0 GHz processor from Snapdragon 625 chipset. The phone may come in RAM options of 3 GB and 4 GB along with a single storage option of 32 GB.  It is expected to carry support for up to 128 GB microSD card.

Its front-facing shooter is rumored to be of f/2.2 aperture 5-megapixel Omnivision OV5695 image sensor. Other features include NFC, fingerprint scanner, Android 7.0 Nougat, 4G LTE, and a 3,000 mAh battery.

The Brazilian edition of Moto G5 Plus is pegged to include DTV receiver. Since the above image says that it will feature Motorola Experience, it is pegged to include proprietary software features from Motorola like Moto Assist, Moto Display and Moto Actions.

Lenovo will not only unveil the Moto G5 Plus on Feb. 26, but also the Moto G5 will be introduced to the world. Both the phones are expected to go on sale in March.

    If it really is the IMX362 that they’re using, you can sure take my money. This sensor has an integrated Dual Pixel autofocus system as what the S7 has. Hopefully it will be with f/1.7 aperture, same as Vivo Xplay 6 which based on some side-to-side camera comparisons, beats S7 in low-light shots. I trust the camera software algorithm of recent Moto phones, most especially the G4 plus, with the ability to produce very good resolved detail with minimal sharpening on it’s shots. Lastly, I’m hoping it will have a manual/pro mode for RAW DNG shots and for long exposure shots.

    looks pretty promising, really. i got burned on my Moto G4, so I’m still hesitant. I have ghost touching where the screen just freaks out and requires a reboot. also, i get missed calls. I get voicemails but the phone doesn’t ring and there is no record of the call in the call log. its delegated to back up duty, so I can live with it, but its disappointing.
