Another week, another new phone from Motorola.
Today the company unveiled the Moto G5S Plus, which is a “special edition” of the Moto G5 Plus that arrived earlier in the year. Motorola added a two-camera setup on the rear, a larger display, front-facing LED flash, and the latest version of Android. Other areas, such as the processor and battery size, haven’t changed.
The Moto G5 Plus features a 5.5-inch Full HD (1920×1080) IPS LCD display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, 13MP + 8MP cameras on the back, an 8MP on the front, a 3000mAh battery, a micro-USB port, and Android 7.1 Nougat.
Motorola also announced the Moto G5S. It includes an improved all-metal unibody, a single 16MP rear camera, and a slightly larger 5.2-inch display. The focus for this announcement is clearly on the Moto G5S Plus, not the Moto G5S.
Details regarding a release date are a bit vague at this time, but we know only the Moto G5S Plus will make its way to the United States. That should happen this fall. Pricing, meanwhile, is completely up in the air still. But, based on the European price tag that was revealed, we believe the Moto G5S Plus will cost around $350.
It’s going to be a price you wouldn’t expect from the Moto G family; however, the specifications are definitely upgraded from the previous models and you still get full compatibility with both GSM and CDMA networks. So, really, it’s probably worth the extra amount of money.
