Lenovo’s Motorola brand has sent out invites for an event that will hold on October 14 in Shenzhen, China. The company disclosed in the invitations that they would be launching new products. One of the products expected to debut on that day is the Moto G5S and G5S Plus. The Moto G5S and G5S Plus are relatively no longer new products because they have gone official in Germany as well as in India a couple of months back. But Lenovo is yet to unveil the Moto branded smartphones in its home market which happens to be the world’s second-largest smartphone market.
The Invitation for the event adopted a unique pattern as it contains a card, as well as a grapefruit, enclose in a box. This is perhaps to highlight the fresh new, re-branded Moto line. It must be stated that the invite doesn’t mention the identity of any of the products expected to debut on that day but the Moto G5S and G5S Plus should be among. Apart from the fact that they had already been unveiled in other markets, the phones have gotten TENAA certification about a month back which showed that a launch in China was imminent.
As a recap, the Moto G5S features a 5.2-inch full HD display covered with Gorilla Glass 3. The Indian variant of the Moto G5S gets 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage but China will be getting both the 3GB + 32GB version as well as the 4GB + 64GB variant. The device is also listed as powered by a 1.5GHz processor which is already known to be the Snapdragon 430 chip. In addition, the Moto G5S comes with a metal body and a single rear camera, unlike the G5S Plus which has a dual camera setup at the rear. The G5S gets its juice from a 2810mAh battery. The battery is a removable one and the camera is a 16MP sensor at the rear and a 5MP front camera.
On the other hand, the Moto G5S Plus features a bigger 5.5-inch 1080p display on top of an all metal-unibody. The device is powered by a 2,35GHz processor which is the Snapdragon 625 SoC. The China version will come with just 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage unlike the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage combo unveiled in India. As stated earlier, the major upgrade in the Moto G5S Plus is the addition of dual rear cameras. The G5S Plus dual cameras consist of two 13MP rear cameras in the Monochrome + RGB format with a 3D depth sensor for bokeh effects.
