The leak also shows that the phone will also come with a front mounted fingerprint sensor. You can slide across the fingerprint sensor to switch to multitasking and vice versa. This is slightly similar to what we’ve seen on the Lenovo Z2 Plus, launched last year.

The Moto G5 will  come with a 5 inch full HD display, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. The phone will run on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, with barely any UI changes.
