Pricing leaks on a trio of unannounced Moto handsets with a dual-camera setup on back

Pricing was also listed for the Moto G5S Plus. This model looks like the Moto G5 Plus, except with an all-metal body and a dual rear-camera setup.It also features the same exact specs as the Moto G5 Plus, and is priced at Rs16,999. That works out to $280 USD at current exchange rates. As a comparison, the Moto G5 Plus goes for $229 from hybrid carrier Republic Wireless and retailer Best Buy.
The last leaked price is for the Motorola Moto X4. This is a sequel to the 2015 Moto X model. According to Yatim, the mid-ranger will carry a Rs20,999 price tag, equivalent to $326 USD. All of these new Moto handsets come with a dual-camera setup on back.
Motorola last week unveiled the unlocked Moto Z2 Play, priced in the range of $500. A carrier branded version will be available from Verizon perhaps as soon as this month. The sequel to the Moto Z Play does not feature a dual-camera setup.

Motorola, the pioneer of comapct smart phones (original Moto X) 3-4 years later can't make a descent phone under 5". Tired of hearing 5.2 and above. Moto G has a 5" but phone is bigger than GS7

The trends are going toward larger and larger phones. That's what an overwhelming number of consumers are looking for these days. I work for a cell provider and every time we present customers with options more often than not they go with the larger option. One specific example would be the Iphone 6 vs the Iphone SE, essentially the same phone and pretty similar specs (not exact but similar) the SE is smaller and much less expensive but people still tend to pic the Iphone 6 solely because its bigger.

Right?! It's ridiculous. Such a shame that the Moto G5 (not the plus) is not even really compact at all.

Your the ridiculous one. Motorola should be commended for trying to keep the prices down, but at the same time give you much better specs. The most important thing on any smartphone is the display. It's what you use to interact with, look at information, view videos, movies, browse the web with, play games, view your camera images, and more. The Moto G5 is only 3/4" physically longer than the iPhone SE. Yet you are getting a full HD display, or the same display resolution found on the iPhone 7 plus for a fraction of the price of the iPhone 7 plus and the iPhone SE. Not to mention with the Moto G5 you are getting expandable storage and a larger 2800 mha removable battery. Not to mention a better camera for selfies as well. The one that should be ashamed here is Apple trying to sell an iPhone SE as a kid range device with a tiny cracker box display that is sub HD.

The most important thing of any smart phone is to be usable! And guess what, some of us (I am happy to see more and more) like to use a smartphone with 1 hand!!! If I could use a 3.5" scree phone in 2012, I bet you I will not have a problem with a 4.7 in 2017. The main problem is, there a hundreds of 5.5" slabs, from $100 - $1000 , 6-8mm thin but almost none good specked under 4.9" (good specked: mid range or higher CPU, 4gb RAM, 3000mah or more in expense of thickness, I don't mind 10mm, good cameras, finger print sensor, headphone jack). FYI, Holding GS7 and it's 20% too big for me. I can't comfortably swipe down the notification pane with one hand. Also, it's ridicoulsy thin without a case, to thin it is hard to hold.
