Evan Blass shows Verizon’s Moto G5 Plus launching soon

It’ll be a busy weekend, but Evan Blass isn’t waiting for official announcements. The mobile industry insider is telling people what to expect at MWC 2017 from the biggest companies around.

Now we’re getting a look at the Lenovo-made Moto G5 Plus that Verizon will sell this year.

Verizon is keeping branding to the minimum

The new Moto G family, which will be the fifth edition for the line, is going to be announced over the weekend; however, Blass is adding the leaks that show what the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus look like.

From the outside, Verizon’s variant doesn’t look any different from what Lenovo will sell directly to consumers. The software, though, could be slightly tweaked to include select apps and services from Big Red. And the 4G LTE icon the carrier uses on all of its devices is on this Moto G5 Plus as well.

The Moto G5 Plus is expected to feature a 5.2-inch Full HD (1080p) display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, a special 12MP camera with “Dual Autofocus Pixels,” fast charging capabilities for the 3000mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner. It will ship with the latest version of Android, and there shouldn’t be too much software overlay from its maker.

Lenovo’s presentation at MWC 2017 in Barcelona will take place on February 26 at 10:30AM ET. We, of course, will be there providing live coverage from that presentation and all of the others.
