The new smartphones from Lenovo looks good and will have some impressive features. At least that's what the leak from a certain retailer indicates. The Moto G5 and G5 Plus from Lenovo are set for launch at the 2017 Mobile World Congress which will be held in Barcelona, Spain at the end of this month. This early, though, an image and the specs of the two devices have been leaked by so-called e-tailer Ktronix. The leak appeared on Ktronix, an online retail site owned by Colombia-based Alkosto, last Wednesday.
The listing was quickly removed by Ktronix but not before a number of websites, particularly Venture Beat, caught the error. Though, a number of leaks have already surfaced regarding the two Lenovo smartphones, it is still interesting to see the supposed Moto G5 and G5 Plus as press images or renders.
The first of the deleted images showed the front and back sides of the G5 Plus. Android Police noted that the G5 Plus is a little larger than the standard G5. The Moto G5 also has a rounder frame than the G5 Plus. The Moto G5 also has chamfers which may indicate that a metal frame was used. Android Police also stressed that the Lenovo logo on the edge of the device does not belong and hopefully, would not be there when the smartphones are revealed.
As for the specs, both models will have better processors than their predecessors. The Moto G5 will run on 1.4GHz 8-core Snapdragon 430 while the G5 Plus will have the 1.5Ghz 8-core Snapdragon 617 SoC. Both will have 2GB of RAM and microSD slots to expand storage to 128GB. The G5 will have 32GB of internal storage while the G5 Plus will have 64GB. The Moto G5 will have a 13MP rear camera with phase-detect autofocus sensor while the G5 Plus' 12MP rear camera will feature dual autofocus pixels.
