Motorola has a big event scheduled for July 25th, and the Lenovo-backed company is set to unleash a number of new smartphones for the consumer market. Although we’ve seen numerous leaks concerning upcoming Motorola smartphones, there’s one that we haven’t heard much about: the Moto G5S Plus.
Well-placed sources indicate that the Moto G5S Plus is a slightly larger version of the existing Moto G5 Plus. It is said to be a more premium device with higher quality materials and a larger display. While the Moto G5 and G5 Plus have 5-inch and 5.2-inch displays respectively, the Moto G5S Plus is said to bump the screen up to 5.5 inches. Despite the larger display, screen resolution remains the same at Full HD (1920x1080).
You’ll still find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC powering the smartphone along with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Even though the overall footprint of the device will increase, there is currently no word on if the battery will get a similar boost in capacity. The current Moto G5 and G5 Plus have batteries with a capacity of 2800 mAh and 3000 mAh respectively.
The other big “reveal” when it comes to the Moto G5 Plus is the fact that it will be equipped with dual rear cameras. Both cameras will reportedly feature 13MP sensors, with one shooting in color, and one in black and white. The front-facing camera has also been upgraded from a 5MP to an 8MP sensor.
Other Motorola smartphones reportedly on tap for the July 25th event include the Moto Z2 Force and the Moto X4. The Moto Z2 Force features a 5.5-inch QHD display, Motorola’s robust “ShatterShield” display technology, Snapdragon 835 SoC and support for Moto Mods accessories.
The Moto X4, on the other hand, will allegedly include a 5.2-inch Full HD display, octa-core Snapdragon 630 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage, microSD slot, 16MP selfie camera, dual rear cameras (one 8MP, one 12MP), IP68 dust/water resistance, 3000 mAh battery and support for Google’s Project Fi wireless service.
