Leaks last month hinted that Moto will be revealing their new Moto G5 and G5 plus at the Mobile World Council in Spain. The leaks were right and the official specs and price of Moto’s new budget phones are out.
Moto G5 and G5 Plus Specs
The Moto G5 comes in fancy Lunar Gray and Fine Gold variants for a classier look. The 5 inch FHD display device is powered by the Snapdragon 430 a 1.4GHz octacore processor. 2GB of RAM and an option of 16 or 32 GB ROM makes this phones memory decent as well. Camera-wise, the G5 has a 13MP rear cam. It is packed with a 2,800 mAh battery that can last while for smartphones with these specs.
The “Plus” in the Moto G5 plus is not just for show, this 5.2 inch FHD display device is not just bigger. Powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor, that is not only powerful but easy on the battery, this device is a real “plus”. Memory wise the RAMs are similar but the ROMs are at 64 and 128GB options. On top of that, the battery for the G5 plus is 3,000 mAh for a bit more juice. The camera on this device is at 12 MP rear cam with dual focus pixels.
These two devices still share a few things though like the battery being removable. Also they both have 5 MP Front Cameras. But, right out of the box these phones are supposed to have Android 7.0 Nougat.
Moto G5 and G5 Plus Price
The two phones have major differences but the prices are not too far from each other. The Moto G5 is set to hit markets at $210 or roughly Php 10,600. And price for the Moto G5 Plus starts at $229 or about Php 11,500.
These two phones are touted as Motos budget line and the prices are not bad for the specs that the phone has. Again, there are some variations between the two when it comes to memory. But, with their processors as they are these phones looks like they are pretty good deals.
