But at least as far as Lenovo’s Moto-branded product roster is concerned, any new additions next month are unlikely to go directly after the mobile industry’s H1 2017 wave of heavyweights. Which doesn’t mean we’re not interested in what the G5 and G5 Plus will bring to the mid-range table.
It’s unclear if we’ll indeed get three main G5 configurations, or just two, in which case the standard Moto G5 would sport a 5-inch Full HD screen, compared to the 5.5-inch 1080p panel of the Plus variant.
Bottom line, a 5-inch Full HD G5 or G5 Play is definitely in the pipeline, with a Snapdragon 430 processor, 2GB RAM, 13 and 5MP cameras, 2800mAh battery, 32GB internal storage, microSD support, and Android 7.0 Nougat also in tow.
Then, there’s one or two 5.5-inch models on the way, with SD625, 3 or 4GB RAM, up to 64 gigs of local digital hoarding room, Moto Z-inspired looks, 3000mAh or so cell capacity, and of course, pre-loaded Nougat software.
