New Moto phone(s) will be announced at MWC 2017

Lenovo today revealed that it's planning to announce new mobile devices at MWC 2017 next month. Specifically, it looks like we're going to see at least one new Moto smartphone unveiled on February 26. 

While Lenovo and Motorola won't say what they're preparing for MWC 2017, they could announce the Moto G5 Plus - a handset first spotted earlier this month

As its name suggests, the Moto G5 Plus should succeed last year's Moto G4 Plus. Its highlight features seemingly include Android 7 Nougat, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and a 3080 mAh battery.

Lenovo may also unveil a high-end Moto smartphone at MWC 2017, though we're thinking that the probability of this to happen is low. Usually, high-end and flagship Moto phones are not announced during this time of the year. 

Whatever Lenovo and Motorola have to showcase at MWC 2017, we'll be there to report about it.

They need to put a fingerprint reader in the regular G5 and G5 Play, not just the Plus. How much does that part cost really? Moto would really be killing it on the low end if the G5 Play gets a fingerprint reader and is $149.

I think with the competition in the market a better chipset, more RAM and storage, and fingerprint sensor will be required to maintain the $149 price point. This year is going to be brutal for low end and mid range handsets.
