New Delhi: Lenovo will most likely launch the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus on February 26 at MWC. At least one of the phones, the Moto G5 to be precise, is already available for buying on OLX in Brazil even before the official announcement.
According to a new report , the Moto G5 spotted on OLX costs about $385 (roughly Rs 25,655) for the 32 gig base memory model. Moreover, the listing is accompanied by a couple of images showing off the in-box specifics of the phone in question. The Moto G5, as per the listing, will ship with Motorola’s proprietary Turbo Charger, a pair of earphones, and instruction manuals. More importantly, the phone’s design seems to be in line with ongoing reports confirming that it would in fact come with an all-metal body and a front-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The Moto G5 will reportedly come with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clubbed with 2 gigs of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (with support for expandable memory). The G5 is further said to come with a 13-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone is said to be backed by a 2,800mAh battery. Software, as largely excepted, would be an almost vanilla flavor of Android Nougat.
The Moto G5 Plus, on the other hand, will reportedly come with a 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clubbed with 2GB RAM and 64GB memory (with support for expandable memory). It is further said to come with a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual autofocus pixels alongside a 5-megapixel camera.
$385 may seem an overkill for a Moto G5 considering that the Moto G range has always largely focused on aggressive pricing and value for money, but, since the price quoted comes via OLX, it is advised that you take this piece of information with a grain of salt.
