Nokia 3310 2017 Leak Main Article 1

Lenovo has unveiled the fifth generation Moto G5 and G5 Plus in Barcelona ahead of Mobile World Congress today (February 26). Moto G5 and Nokia 5 both are the mid-range segment phone at decent specifications and affordable price. But just because you have a limited budget doesn't mean you have to stop hoping.

"The Moto G5 sports a 5" Full HD (1920*1080) display, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The handset also comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which supports microSD card up to 128GB. Its camera comes with a13-megapixel f/2.0 system with phase detect autofocus. The front camera is a 5 MP unit with f/2.2 aperture.

Connectivity options include NFC, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and dual SIM slots.The Moto G5 gets a removable 2,800mAh battery while the G5 Plus model gets a sealed 3,000mAh battery.

Neither phone offers full-blown water resistance, but each has a water repellent coating that should at the very least protect them from the occasional outing in rain. The smartphone will be available in India from March.

As for the Moto G5 Plus, that upgrades in a number of places.

Also, both handsets feature fingerprint sensors, which is surprising, being the midrange devices they are. It also features in 32 GB or 64 GB, which RAM ranges between 2GB and 4GB. The G5 Plus, meanwhile, has a 12-megapixel shooter, but that's loaded with advanced features such as dual-autofocus pixels, f/1.7 aperture, and the ability to record 4K video. The global version supports NFC, but apparently the model destined for the United States won't have it.

What has historically set Motorola's G Series of phones apart, of course, is competitive pricing.

The Moto G5 starts at a €199 (roughly $210 or Rs 14000) price tag for the 2GB/16GB variant. Moto G5 is backed up by removable 2,800mAh battery and runs on Android Nougat 7.0.1. "Photographer-quality camera. Striking screen resolution and display". Swipe left over the fingerprint reader for back, and swipe right for multitasking view. However, to our disappointment, the images have been pulled down the internet, and if you think they could be found in the Google cache, you're in for a spoiler, because you can't find them there either.

Both models of the new Moto have access to the Google Assistant, the search company's artificial intelligence powered virtual assistant, further spreading it beyond the confines of the Google's Pixel models in the smartphone market.

The Moto G5 won't actually be launching in the United States at all, but the G5 Plus will arrive sometime in April of this year.
