“The Moto G5s Plus marks the arrival of the dual cameras to the Moto G series”
The Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus have been the subject of endless rumours, reports and renders lately. Today, the company has officially unveiled the devices by listing them on its official website. While the Moto G5s is a single rear camera-toting smartphone, the Moto G5s Plus marks the arrival of dual cameras to the Moto G family.
The new Moto G series devices flaunt all-metal unibody designs, selfie flash, 3,000mAh batteries with TurboPower fast charging, and Android Nougat 7.1 with Moto Actions. Both the phones also get a water-repellent nano-coating. Thanks to fast charging support, their 3,000mAh batteries are capable of delivering five hours of use with just a 15-minute charge.
Talking about the Moto G5s Plus first, the phone gets 13-megapixel dual cameras at the rear with a depth-of-field effect, a dual-LED flash and 4K video recording support. On the front, it gets an 8MP snapper with a wide-angle lens and f/2.0 aperture. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. It is powered by a 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC, mated to an Adreno 506 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The other specs include 32GB of expandable storage, 4G LTE, dual-SIM slots and NFC.
The Moto G5s, on the other hand, gets a smaller 5.2-inch full HD display with a layer of Gorilla Glass 3 on top. The phone is fuelled by a 1.4GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 SoC working in tandem with Adreno 505 GPU. The device comes with a 16-megapixel rear snapper with PDAF, a dual-LED flash and f/2.0 aperture, and a 5MP selfie shooter. The storage capacity and connectivity features (barring NFC) are the same as the Moto G5s Plus.
The Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus will be available in Lunar Gray and Blush Gold colour variants. The former has been priced at £219.99 (~Rs 18,600), while the latter will be available for £259.99 (~Rs 22,000). They will go on sale in the UK later this month. The Indian availability of the phones hasn’t been announced yet.
