Yesterday, the Moto G5S Plus became available for pre-order across the US starting at US$229.99. The successor of the popular Moto G5 Plus is scheduled to launch on September 29.

Last month, Motorola silently introduced updated versions of its popular Moto G5 and G5 Plus handsets. The new variants are considered to be "special edition" smartphones and retail as the Moto G5S/G5S Plus. As its name suggests, the Moto G5S Plus is the larger and more expensive of these two updated Motorola handsets. Starting yesterday, those interested to acquire one can place their pre-orders with one of the many US retailers that have decided to add the Moto G5S Plus to their portfolio.

The Moto G5S Plus sports the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor as its predecessor, the Moto G5 Plus. However, it comes with a larger display and more memory: 5.5-inch full HD and 3 GB or 4 GB variants, instead of the 5.2-inch full HD display and 2 GB or 3 GB memory options available for the buyers who decide to go with the Moto G5 Plus.

In addition to the above, the Moto G5S Plus also comes with an all-metal body and an improved dual-camera setup that features two 13 MP sensors. This is a solid improvement over the single 12 MP main image snapper of the Moto G5 Plus, although the battery of the G5S Plus has the same 3,000 mAh capacity as that of its predecessor.

Until September 28, both Moto G5S Plus variants can be pre-ordered for US$50 less than their regular price. The price tags currently read US$229.99 (3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage) and US$299.99 (4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage). The unlocked Moto G5S Plus works with all major U.S. carriers, including Sprint and Verizon Wireless.
