Motorola Moto G5 specs leak out, including 5-inch 1080p display
After the Moto G4 phones released last year, Lenovo and Motorola are unsurprisingly getting ready to introduce a Moto G5 series. We've already seen images allegedly showing a Moto G5 Plus, and now we have information on what could be a regular Moto G5, or perhaps a Moto G5 Play.

Brazilian website Tecnoblog found a "Moto G5 XT1672" listed in the database of a major retailer, alongside some of its key specs.

While the G5 Plus supposedly features a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a Snapdragon 625 processor, the Moto G5 XT1672 is smaller and less powerful, featuring a 5-inch 1080p display and a Snapdragon 430 CPU. The handset runs Android 7.0 Nougat, further offering LTE, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2800 mAh battery. As for cameras, there's a 13 MP one on the back, and a 5 MP one on the front.

Unfortunately, there's no image to show this 5-inch Moto G5, but we assume it looks a lot like the Moto G5 Plus (pictured above).

The Moto G5 series might be released in March, and we expect Lenovo and Motorola to announce it in the near future.

Not old, could be a terminal emulator or/and running a cobol application. Lots of big company still run those. Reliable and do the job.

I'm starting to feel that we need the likes of Xiaomi and Oneplus to actually push the envelope on what can be bought for USD 200 or USD 400. Without such companies we only had options like USD 800 iPhones, Galaxy Ses, HTCs... or crap SD410 phones for USD 200.

they keep using the lowest level of Snapdragon's new line :-/ why not SD626 or SD626 which already use 14nm (compared to 28nm in SD430), price difference between those two component is less than $10 :-/

God gave you sense: If they sale 3 million units with the 430 instead of the 626, they save thirty million in build costs.....And the performance boost is so negligible that no one cares. I highly doubt people shopping in this price bracket know or care about NM measurements either, so it's win-win for Lenovo.

Just an FYI, it's not "sale", it's "sell". God should give you some sense too Apple troll. That is what happens when you are a high-school drop-out.

simply increase the price by $10 to cover that.. and they even get extra profit... and they can sell more than 3million that way... I'm sure most people won't even care about $10 gap when getting new phone... and even if they dont know about processor, in spec sheet SD626 looks much better than SD430, and it will give some advantage if there are people who compare them with other smartphone at same price range..

Then need to bring back the curved back of the original Moto G design and put in stereo front facing speakers. This phone is not as nice as it used to be.
