Motorola has confirmed that the Moto G5S Plus will go on sale starting September 29. The handset gets a slew of upgrades such as an-all metal body, a larger screen, a dual-lens camera setup, along with an 8MP front-facing shooter.
The biggest change, however, is the addition of a dual-lens camera setup. As unlike the Moto G5 and G5 Plus which had a single-lens camera setup, the Moto G5S Plus will feature a dual-lens primary camera setup with a 13MP+13MP setup. Also, the front-facing camera gets upgraded to 8MP compared to 5MP on the Moto G5 and G5 Plus.
Elsewhere, the upcoming Moto G5S Plus will sport an all-metal design unlike the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus which had plastic. The frame of the G5S Plus is made from anodized aluminium giving it a premium look and feel.
However, the handset retrains the same set of specs as the original Moto G5 Plus, except for the larger 5.5-inch display compared to the 5.2-inch display found on the latter. Other key specs on the Moto G5S Plus include Snapdragon 625 processor bundled with either 3GB RAM/32GB built-in storage and 4GB RAM/64GB built-in storage.
There’s also an option to increase storage to up to 128GB via microSD slot. While juicing up the smartphone will be a 3000mAh battery.
Other features expected include a fingerprint scanner. As far as OS goes, the device will run Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box.
The Moto G5S Plus is now open for pre-orders via the company’s official website. It’ll go on sale starting September 29 at a price of $230 for the 32GB model, while its 64GB variant will cost $300. At launch, the handset will also arrive on major ecommerce websites such as Best Buy, B&H, Fry’s, Motorola.com, New Egg, Ting and Walmart.com.
To recall, Lenovo-owned Motorola announced the original Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus smartphones at MWC 2017.
