A possible new model of the Moto G5 may bring more premium materials, a larger screen, and a dual-camera setup for vastly improved photos.
Sam Medley,

Motorola’s G line has been a smashing success with each iteration since the release of the original Moto G in 2013. The Moto G5 has been no exception, but the latest mid-range device from Motorola took a stark departure in the design language of the line. This year’s entry may offer some more differences if recent leaks are to be believed. Motorola may be planning on releasing a souped up version of the Moto G5 Plus, dubbed the Moto G5S Plus.

Thanks to Evan Blass (@evleaks on Twitter), the specs of the supposed device have been leaked and posted on VentureBeat. Most of the components are the same as the Moto G5 Plus, including the FHD resolution and Snapdragon 625, up to 4 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal storage. However, the G5S Plus changes two key differences from its non-S brother. The G5S Plus will feature a 5.5-inch screen, more premium materials, and a dual-camera setup on the back of the device. These two cameras are bumped to 13 MP (the standard G5 Plus has a single 12 MP camera) and take a page out of Huawei’s book. One of the cameras has a standard RGB sensor while the other has a monochrome sensor. These cameras should work together in stitching a color and black-and-white version of the same image together for increased detail, dynamic range, and contrast. The dual-camera setup may also enable a bokeh effect for better looking portraits and some other niceties.

There’s no word on whether or not Motorola is increasing the battery capacity, but this is a possibility due to the increased screen size. There’s also no word on pricing just yet, but expect to see something about the Moto G5S Plus at Motorola’s event later this month.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
