Motorola doesn't plan on slowing down anytime soon, with a new leak revealing specifications of the upcoming G5S Plus. It's expected to launch alongside its slightly smaller, less powerful sibling, the Moto G5S Plus.

The newly released Moto Z2 Play and the upcoming Z2 Force may be on all the headlines but on the sides stand the Moto G5S and its plus-sized sibling, the Moto G5S Plus.

We're not fans of Motorola's naming scheme—G5, G5 Plus, G5S, G5S Plus—as it's rather tedious, but these entries look promising. A new leak appeared earlier on, detailing some information on the G5S Plus. 

While the G5S is to sport a 5.2" display, the G5S Plus goes larger with a 5.5". Not much of a plus to that, we'd say. The G5S Plus is also powered by a Snapdragon 625, which is a significant upgrade from the Snapdragon 430 on the G5S.

Camera-wise, the G5S Plus features dual rear cameras (13MP+13MP), with one being a regular sensor and the other a monochromatic one. The G5S, on the other hand, comes with only one rear camera. There's an 8MP camera at the front of the G5S Plus, and a 5MP on the G5S.

Both being mid-rangers, are expected to come in variants of up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Good enough for most purposes.

While release dates are unconfirmed, there's a chance they may be announced alongside the Z2 Force and X4 on July 25. We'll be sure to keep you updated.
