Lenovo is all set to launch new G series of Motorola smartphones at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 next month. But ahead of the expected unveiling, the alleged Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus listing by FCC (Federal Communications Commission) suggests that the smartphone will have a 3000mAh and 3100mAh battery onboard.

As per the listing, the Moto G5 will come with 3000mAh battery and with fast charging support, whereas the Moto G5 Plus is listed to pack 3100mAh battery with fast charging. The smartphones are also suggested to come with NFC support which was not available in the Moto G4 series.

Lenovo had already sent out invites for the MWC 2017 press event. The Chinese tech company is hosting pre-MWC event on February 26, and it is expected that the company will most likely launch the new G5 series, Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus at the event.



The Moto G5 as the previous rumors suggested, will feature a 5-inch full HD display. The phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor. The Moto G5 will pack 4GB of RAM paired with 32GB in-built memory. The phone will sport a 13-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel front camera for selfies. It will supposedly run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.

Apparently, the Moto G5 Plus smartphone is expected to feature with 5.5-inch full-HD (1080p) display. It will be powered by 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor.

Brazilian blog Techoblog recently found a model“MotoXT1672” listed in the database of a retailer and claimed it to be the Moto G5 smartphone. However, when it was researched, the model number was found certified as the Moto G5 Play in the FCC.  According to FCC, Moto G5 Play feature a 5-inch full-HD display, Android 7.0 Nougat, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and 2,800mAh battery with no quick charge support.
