Lenovo To Launch Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus At MWC 2017

Lenovo is gearing up for the launch of new Moto devices at MWC 2017. Most likely Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are the two new devices which Lenovo is planning to launch. The company has started sending out media invites for the MWC 2017 event which shows that it’s a Moto device. The invite shows a picture of Moto device with a shadow in the shape of Sagrada Familia Church of Barcelona with “Hello Moto” written on it. Due to the surfaced images and leaks on the web, Moto G5 isn’t hidden anymore.

By looking at the media invite, it’s more likely to carry the design from its siblings. However its images were leaked earlier on Chinese social network Weibo. Its specifications were also leaked on a Romanian site. There is a square shaped fingerprint scanner placed at the bottom of the display just like Moto G4 Plus. Moto G5 will most probably come in two variants with a normal variant and a Plus variant.
