Lenovo has started sending out invites for this year's Mobile World Congress event which scheduled for February 26. The annual mobile and smartphone trade show is an avenue for major manufacturers, like Nokia, Samsung, LG and Xiaomi, to unveil new products. The event is set to take place in Barcelona, Spain.
The company is expected to showcase a new smartphone under the Moto brand. There aren't specific details about the device as it was not disclosed by Lenovo. The design of the invite shows a Moto phone casting a shadow of the Sagrada Familia Church found in Barcelona. The invitation provides us with a glimpse of what might be the Moto G5 Plus which leaked online earlier this month. Chinese social network site Weibo uploaded the press image of the supposed phone. The phone's looks bear a resemblance to Moto X which set off speculations that Moto X will be the next generation's ideal smartphone.
The first generation of Moto G series smartphones came out the previous year performed well with their decent specs and pricing and have been considered successful at entry-level devices.
According to a removed listing from Romanian site OLX, details about the specifications of Moto G5 Plus include a 5.5 inch Full HD display that will run on an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC together with Adreno 506 GPU.
It's quite possible that it will be powered by 4GB RAM and provide 32GB of internal storage. The handset might have a 3080mAh battery and run Android Nougat out of the box and offer stock UI experience.
The phone would have a 13 MP camera at the back and sport a 5 MP camera for the front. The online leaked photos also suggest a visible and physical home button, which is expected to be used as a fingerprint scanner as well.
