Moto G5 specs leak out via GFXBench

About a week ago, specs for the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus both leaked courtesy of Brazilian online retailer KTronix. Today, we get to see if the Moto G5 specs revealed by the retailer match those disseminated by benchmark testing site GFXBench. Let's first check out the specs on the benchmark site. It shows that the Moto G5 will carry a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 5-inch display carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution. The Snapdragon 430 SoC will be under the hood, featuring an octa-core CPU running at a clock speed of 1.4 GHz. The Adreno 505 GPU is included.

So far, the GFXBench specs line up perfectly with the previous leak. However, the benchmark test reveals that there will be two variants of the Moto G5; one will be equipped with 2GB of RAM while the other will carry 3GB of the sweet stuff. And the two versions will come with 16GB and 32GB of native storage, respectively. The KTronix leak only showed the phone with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. GFXBench shows that a 12MP rear-facing camera will be on board, along with a 5MP front-facing selfie snapper.

Rumored specs that are not found on GFXBench include a 2800mAh removable battery, 128GB capacity microSD slot, inclusion of a fingerprint scanner, two color options (Lunar Gray and Fine Gold) and the P2i nano coating that protects the phone and its innards from spills and light rain.

The Moto G5 and G5 Plus are expected to be unveiled at MWC on February 26th. Request a reminder on your phone.

Android 7.0 "Motoblur" huh? interesting...

Why are all these devices shipping with 7.0 and not 7.1.1...? 7.1.1 contains some extremely good improvements and also important security fixes in the kernel Devices like the S7 and others won't see 7.1.1 till like the fall now which would be incredibly sad

You're being a little too hard on the OEMs. They have to code for the new version AND ensure compatibility with their unique overlay. That takes time. Add in carrier tie-ins, security patches, as well various other things, and you get the difficulty of updating any non-Google Android device. Now depending on how you feel about skins in general ,that's a whole other subject. One that causes heated debates.....and by heated I mean name-calling generally. I personally enjoy some skins, like Sense and MIUI, and most of the others are tolerable at the very least. But nothing tops Stock in terms of RAW fluidity and software updates on Android. Tl;dr- Software is hard....especially with "extra" items to account for.

7.1.1 underlying code is not much differrnt from 7.0 at all, and it has been out for months for OEM' to test, I blame Google and the OEM'S For still sitting on their thumbs for years now with still no clear plan of expediting updates on Android devices. They clearly don't care to address this issue because they got to sell the next new phone Even Some Google devices take few months longer to get updates vs others (Nexus 6 got Nougat just recently while others had it for a little whie now) Someone like Samsung and others work very closely with Google on updates and the next update to Android so there isn't really much excuses here, their priorities are straight and clear, it is to focus on the flagship only and the rest of the devices are 2nd thought As a long time very experienced veteran user of Android, there is no question this is still one major disadvantage for Android at the moment.

U don't understand these politics...after 1 month they will update it to 7.1.1 and will say " see we provided one major Android update"

The more I read about the Moto G5 and G5 Plus the less interested I am. I'll stick with my G4 Plus. Mine is still on 6.0.1 but it's all good
