The Moto G5S Plus shows off its three color variants in leaked renders

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.

This could end up being about 90% as good as the Z2 Force and about half the price. I'm beginning to think that Lenovo is just throwing darts at the board to see what will actually stick. How many versions of how many phones will the make? Seems like there's at least 2 versions each of the E, G, X and Z series, with the differences and prices getting fuzzier the lower you go. It just blows my mind that they'll make good value devices in the G and E lines (bought some for the kids in the past - great phones for the price), but skimp on the high end line but still charge a high end price.
