Moto G5 and G5 Plus leaked ahead of MWC


Details of the Moto G5 and G5 Plus, pegged for launch at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) event in Barcelona, have leaked online after they were listed for sale by mobile retailer Ktronix.

The listing, which has since been taken down, reveals all the key features of soon-to-land handsets, which will mark the fifth iteration of Moto’s entry–level G series smartphone.

What else is happening at Mobile World Congress? Here's our round-up

The G5 features a 5–inch display, with the G5 Plus coming in at 5.2–inches. Last year’s G4 models both came with 5.5–inch screens.

Under the bonnet, each device is powered by a snappy octacore processor and has 2GB of RAM and microSD expansion up to 128GB. The G5 has 32GB of internal space, while the G5 Plus is equipped with 64GB.

Both come with a five-megapixel front–facing selfie camera. The G5 features a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual autofocus, while the G5 Plus has a 12-megapixel phase–detect sensor for super sharp action shots.

Pricing is not yet clear, although the Moto G range tends to be extremely affordable.

It’s likely that both phones will be unveiled on February 26th, before hitting shelves in March.
