Moto G5 Plus Image Leaked; Appears Identical to Previously Leaked Moto X (2017)

The upcoming Moto G5 Plus smartphone was allegedly put on sale on a Romanian website recently, though the listing was later removed. Interestingly, this Moto G5 Plus unit appeared strikingly similar to the Moto X (2017) smartphone that was leaked through images and a render video in December last year.

According to the listing, the Moto G5 Plus smartphone will be available in March this, suggesting we might be close to an official announcement by Moto’s parent company Lenovo. The seller had placed the device up for sale at RON 1,650 (approximately Rs. 26,500). Android Police notes that the Moto G5 Plus unit seen in the image is clearly marked as a prototype, with “engineering marks” still visible.

In terms of specifications, identified by using CPU-Z app, the Moto G5 Plus sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, as per a report by 9to5Google. The Moto G5 Plus smartphone has been tipped to pack a 3080mAh battery and come with 32GB of inbuilt storage.
In terms of optics the Moto G5 Plus smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera, tagged with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel camera at front for taking selfies. The circular camera panel leaked earlier through images features on the listed device, claimed to be Moto G5 Plus smartphone, as well.

Considering that Moto G5 Plus is likely to be a budget smartphone from the company, it unsurprisingly lacks the magnetic pins at the back for Moto Mod support and uses Micro-USB port for charging as well. The Moto X series will probably also forego Moto Mod support, as thus far Lenovo has only promised that all Moto Z series smartphones will come with support for modular accessories going forward.
