Display

The display of the device is not going to have any interesting thing as we see on Samsung S series of devices nor going to have LG and S8 like 1:2 display or something out of the box it is going to be the same 16:9 LCD panel which we see on the devices. Both the models are said to be supported by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 which is useful for safety from normal wear and tear, and still, we will have to get a Screen Guard to save it from impacts. Moreover, in the display part, it’s the same as we mentioned in the specifications part, 5.2-inch, and 5.5-inch of units both with FHD resolution.

Processor

The processor is the new offering from Qualcomm in their budget oriented range the Snapdragon 430 on Moto G5S and Snapdragon 625 on Moto G5SPlus the units and GPU being the stock that comes with the 430 as Adreno 505 and 506 on the higher variant. There is nothing spectacular to note in the processor part, and moreover, its the same which we got in the previous offering from Motorola on both the Moto G5s & Moto G5s Plus.

RAM & Storage

The rumors say that Moto G5s & G5s Plus are going to have a wide range of storage option ranging from 16 GB to up to 64GB Internal Storage which is a good option, the phones will also have dependability options with 256GB of Micro SD Support (2nd SIM). Both phones will have 3 GB & 4 GB RAM variants.

Camera

Moto G5S

The G5s is going to be supported by the same old 13 MP unit, but we must not forget that the G5 also had a spectacular camera performance, the main thing to note is the dual camera that rumors are saying to be on the Moto G5s Plus. Dual Camera setup is still a long way to go for the mid-range segment, and Moto seems to be filling that gap fast and making the consumers get the dual camera without breaking their pocket.

Battery

The Battery of both the devices is said to be around the same with Moto G5s having 3000 mAh of battery while the Moto G5s Plus has a 3050 mAh battery it will be interesting to look at the battery life difference b/w both the handsets. Although both the phones are said to be supporting Turbo Charger which will be a plus point as they are going to have Fast Charge.

Moto G5S Plus

Pricing and Release Date

According to the rumors, Moto G5s and Moto G5s Plus will launch on 25 July, 2017 with Moto Z2 and Moto E4 Plus, but as far as the pricing goes, it is surely be going to be priced above the G5 series and hence will be a little more expensive despite having the same internals. We will have to wait for Moto to spill something official.

According to the rumors, Moto G5S will be priced at Rs. 16999, and the Moto G5S Plus will be priced at Rs. 18999 in India. While in the US both devices will be priced between $250 to $350.

We will have to wait for Moto to spill something official, till then stay tuned to MotoG5 and we will keep you updated with the best of the Tech World.
