Ever since the Moto Z2 Force Edition's
launch event, the company's other devices we were expecting to see unveiled there, the Moto X4
, G5S and G5S Plus
have seemed more like mythical beasts than actual, upcoming products. And while we've heard of a possible release window for the former
, the latter duo is still something of an enigma. But while we wait, the ever reliable serial leakster Evan Blass has come to the rescue with a new set of renders of the G5S Plus to sate our appetite.
While we've seen leaked renders of this particular mid-ranger before, there's one small catch: a color option we previously thought was coming
is mysteriously absent. The gold with gold front is apparently not going to happen, though to be fair it didn't look that good in the first place. What's left are the gold and silver variants with a white front, as well as an all-grey one.
The G5S and G5S+ are new territory for Moto: not exactly new, but not old either, as the original G5
and G5 Plus
were released this March. From what we've gathered, Lenovo is planning on positioning them as special editions instead of new devices — hence the derivative names (which may not be final, mind you).
While we know less about the G5S, the G5S Plus is a much worse-kept secret. Its standout feature will be a 13 MP dual camera, but there's more in terms of upgrades than just it: there have been rumors of an increased screen size (5.5 inches, up from the G5 Plus' 5.2 inches), and a new aluminum design. We're not sure yet when the two devices will be released, but we do know their rumored prices
(in Eastern Europe): about €300 and €330 for the G5S and G5S Plus, respectively.
