The Moto G5S Plus Is One That Puts The Gap Between Budget And Premium

Lenovo is looking to launch something much more premium version of the Moto G5 Plus, featuring dual cameras and a unibody aluminum chassis. The latest rumors surrounding the upcoming Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus. Here are the details about the two.

It was MEC 2017, Lenovo took the wraps off its latest mid-range smartphones, the Moto G5 and the Moto G5 Plus. Both are in the budget-friendly lineup of smartphones, feature premium aluminum design, fingerprint sensors, an improved software experience, and above all things aside, low price tags.


If you think these are the only two mid-tier phones Lenovo has in store for us in 2017, then, you’re mistaken. As we heard plenty of rumors about two slightly higher-end models in the Moto G lineup, which will likely be dubbed the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus. That’s what exactly we are here to exactly tell about the what the smartphones bring to the table. Everything we know so far about Lenovo’s upcoming Moto G5S and G5S Plus is detailed.

The specifications for Moto G5S Plus have already reportedly been leaked from the marketing material for the handset, the smartphone has also been spotted passing Bluetooth certification alongside Moto G5S.

The Moto G5S Plus is said to launch alongside a more standard sized “non-plus” variant, as well as the new Moto Z2 Force. The G5S Plus is set to be housed in a premium aluminum chassis, much more high quality than that of its standard G5 Plus predecessor. Almost, everything internally are set to remain unchanged with a Snapdragon 625, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage, the camera is what really set to get a bump in performance.

In fact, the new camera module is said to sport dual 13MP sensors on the back, and an 8MP camera on the up front of the device. With that said, Lenovo seems to be using a dual camera technology to enable a blurred background effect such as those present in other devices like the OnePlus 5 and iPhone 7, which should intelligently be pretty enticing sell for those declining between the G5 Plus and G5S Plus.

The smartphone has been tipped to get a larger 5.5-inch display, compared with 5.2-inch on Moto G5 Plus, but will likely retain the full HD (1920x1080p) resolution from the G5 Plus.

Both Moto G5S Plus and Moto G5S were spotted receiving certification from Bluetooth Special Internet Group (SIG), as pointed out in the report. The documentation does confirm that the smartphones will support Bluetooth 4.2 and run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box but it doesn’t reveal anything else about the new handsets from Lenovo.

Release date for the Moto G5S Plus is expected to be happen at the July 25 event where the company also likely to unveil Moto Z2 Force and Moto X4, which are another ones to feature a dual rear camera setup.

Currently, we don’t have a ton of details on the G5S line’s specs, but having a handful of Moto G5S images, showing off the new device in grey, gold, and blue color options. There’s still a front-facing fingerprint sensor below the display, along with a small moto logo sandwiched between the earpiece and screen on the top. you can also spot a 3.5 mm headphone jack on the top of each of the devices.  We can expect them to cost a tad more than the standard G5 and G5 Plus, which are currently going for £169/€199 and $229, respectively.
