The Moto G5 and G5 Plus have leaked a few times before, but today we get an official looking render of the bigger unit, together with the info that it’s headed to Verizon. The device doesn’t seem to stray extremely from the predecessor’s design and also adds a twist of Lenovo in the mix.
This new render comes from respected leakster Evan Blass, who also announced it was headed to the US via Verizon. It’s too early to tell if it will be an exclusive, or just arrive there and that’s it. The handset seems to run a nearly stock Android version, much like its predecessor. It could and should debut with Android 7.0 Nougat and it brings a circular camera design with a dual LED flash and maybe if we’re lucky with laser focus.
The Home button upfront is expected to integrated a fingerprint scanner and the specs should include a Full HD screen, Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 2 GB of RAM and 5 MP front camera. We will probably also get a 3 GB RAM version, since 2 GB sounds like too little. 64 GB of storage are here and there’s also a 3000 mAh battery in the mix, with TurboPower charging.
At the back there’s a 12 megapixel camera with dual autofocus pixels and the CPU of choice is an octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. Expect a Sunday launch event at MWC 2017.
