Lenovo-owned Motorola has event scheduled for February 26 at MWC, where it will unveil the new Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. However, before the official unveiling we have some idea of it’s design and specifications, thanks to a flurry of leaks.

A new leaked image of the rear panel (via Weibo) of anticipated Moto G5 Plus suggests a metal unibody design and a protruding circular camera module, similar to Moto Z. Although, the image appears to be a prototype shell and not a functional smartphone. What we can guess from the image is that the smartphone camera can feature a dual-LED setup along with laser autofocus.


Previously, a leaked live image of the alleged Moto G5 Plus front got circulated on Google+. The purported image suggested a front fingerprint sensor on the home button. It included a protective plastic film on the display noting few specifications of the alleged Moto G5 Plus. Apparently, the G5 Plus will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display, an octa-core processor clocked at 2GHz, 3000mAh battery, 12-megapixel “Rapid Focus Camera” and NFC.


The Moto G5 is suggested to sport a 5-inch full HD display and powered by Snapdragon 430 processor. Previous leak reports claimed that the Moto G5 smartphone will come in two variants-3GB RAM/4GB RAM with 32GB internal storage. The phone will have a 2,800mAh battery and run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat. However, the G5 and G5 Plus listing by FCC noted a 3000mAh and 3100mAh battery respectively.

We are yet to see what Lenovo and Motorola brings at MWC on February 26, but one thing is confirmed that these regular leaks might give us an exact picture of upcoming Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus before the actual launch. Rumours also say that Motorola Moto G5 and G5 Plus will go on sale soon after the launch.
