Incremental upgrades to any gadget are a natural way of progression. There is quite literally nothing unique about this trend – everybody does it no matter what segment a company caters to. On that note, Motorola has introduced the upgrades to its Moto G5 and G5 Plus in the form of Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus. The two phones are priced at EUR 249 and EUR 299 respectively.
Both handsets feature all-metal uni-body design and the substance of choice is aluminium. The Moto G5S comes with a 5.2 inches of display which delivers a Full HD resolution. The performance comes from the Snapdragon 430 processor along with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. It is expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card.
Other than the above, the handset runs the latest Android Nougat 7.1.1. The juice is provided by a 3,000mAh battery (which is larger than the 2,800mAh in the Moto G5). Furthermore, the main camera is a 16 mega-pixel unit while the front is a 5 MP unit. Lastly, there is a fingerprint sensor onboard on the Home button at the front.
On the other hand, the Moto G5S Plus, while still a mid-range phone, is a bit of a premium offering compared to its smaller sibling. Besides a slightly larger screen measuring at 5.5 inches (delivering Full HD resolution), a faster Snapdragon 625 processor clocking at 2.0 GHz, the G5S Plus offers a dual camera setup at the back with both lenses of 13 mega-pixels with an aperture of f2.0. What more is that the camera is capable of shooting 4K videos too. The front camera is an 8 mega-pixel snapper. The 3,000mAh battery is a common hardware between the two smartphones.
The phones will be sold through Amazon and the availability in other markets will be known in the coming days.
