Blass shared photos and promotional images of the Moto G5 on his Twitter page (@evleaks). The phone will also have a 5MP front-facing camera, a 3000mAh battery, and an NFC chip. Under the hood is the 64-bit Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz and comes coupled with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. While the specs only list 2GB of RAM, it's extremely likely that there will be another version sporting 4GB of RAM as well based on the current models: the Moto G4 Plus now has two variants with 2GB and 4GB of RAM in the US. However in an unlikely event, the electronics retailer, K-Tronix accidentally listed both the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus with complete details ahead of its official launch. And latest smartphones that have got caught in this twister are Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus.

Following this, the question in many Moto fans' mind would be, is the Moto G5 a worthy upgrade?

Both models feature 2GB of RAM, the same as they did previous year (save for a 4GB upgrade option on the G4 Plus), with G5 offering 32GB of internal storage capacity, and G5 Plus doubling that to 64GB.

Avid Motorola fans are in for some exciting news as the freshly leaked press images from a Spanish retailer have revealed the major design elements for the forthcoming Moto G handsets. It comes with 64GB of onboard storage that can be expanded upto another 128GB. Among other things that the renders reveal are capsule-shaped home button on the front which is going to double up as a fingerprint sensor.

The G5 Plus will also come with a 12-megapixel rear camera with dual autofocus pixels, and the G5 will feature a 13-megapixel phase-detect autofocus sensor. It offers the same connectivity options as seen on the above mentioned Moto G5.

Lately, rumor mills have been busy with leaks relating to the much anticipated Motorola smartphones, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. Android 7.0 Nougat will come pre-installed on the Moto G5 Plus, and a 3,000mAh battery will also be a part of this package, and it will support TurboPower fast charging. We will likely get a firm launch date and pricing from Motorola as part of its MWC 2017 press event on February 26. Moreover, rest of the specs are mostly similar, only with details down to megapixels.
