The 5-inch Moto G5 will come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chip and a 2800mAh battery while the 5.2-inch Moto G5 Plus will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 processor and will have a 3000mAh battery. Both devices will have 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded to 128GB.
As mentioned, the Moto G5 and G5 Plus are supposedly ready in case the new Android OS comes out. It was recently reported that Google is working on three new features for its OS. The new features will likely make it to the new Android 8.0 which is rumored to be called Android Oreo.
The 2GB RAM variant of the Moto G5 Plus will be available for Rs. 15,300 or roughly $229. The 3GB model, meanwhile, will have a Rs. 19,700 price tag which translates to $295.
