Motorola intros the Moto G5S and G5S Plus: Unibody designs, larger screens
The Moto G5S and G5S Plus (pictured above) are larger than the G5 and G5 Plus, and come with "all metal unibody designs" - their bodies are made out of single pieces of high-grade aluminum, instead of aluminum and plastic, as is the case with the older phones.
The Moto G5S sports a 5.2-inch 1080p display (instead of the 5-inch 1080p screen of the regular G5), and packs a slightly bigger battery - 3000 mAh, instead of 2800 mAh. RAM and storage space have been upgraded, too (3 GB and 32 GB), while the rear camera is now a 16 MP one. The rest of the new phone's features appear to be similar to those of the G5, including a Snapdragon 430 processor, and a 5 MP front-facing camera.
With a 5.5-inch 1080p screen (instead of the 5.2-inch 1080p display of the G5 Plus), the Moto G5S Plus is the largest Moto G phone to date. It's also the first to offer a dual rear camera: a 13 MP one with enhanced features like selective focus - perfect for portraits with blurred backgrounds. Moreover, the front-facing camera has been upgraded from 5 MP to 8 MP. Some of the specs that haven't changed (compared to the G5 Plus) include an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, and a 3000 mAh battery. The Moto G5S Plus will have two variants: 3 GB of RAM + 32 GB of storage space, and 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of storage space.
Both the Moto G5S and G5S Plus will be a bit more expensive than their predecessors. The Moto G5S should be offered for $249, while the G5S Plus will be sold starting at $299. Motorola says that the two new smartphones are "coming to the US this fall" - they will be unlocked and compatible with all carriers. Meanwhile, both devices will be available in Europe as soon as this month, starting at €249 and €299, respectively.
