Ahead of Mobile World Congress in a few weeks, press photos of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus have leaked. We’ve seen these devices a few different times in the past but these images provide us with a more detailed look at what to expect.

According to the images, it looks like the Moto G5 and G5 Plus will take some design cues from the Moto Z, one of last year’s more striking designs. That includes the large cyclops camera hump, which has quickly become a trademark of Motorola’s recent phones.

The Moto G line has long been a beloved lineup, offering decent mid-range specs at a very affordable price. If we’re to judge the G5 and G5 Plus solely on their looks, fans will be very happy with the new models.

Android Nougat out of the box

As for the specs, well, everything we’ve heard thus far has been unconfirmed, but the G5 Plus could pack a serious punch. According to someone who had early access to the device, it’ll come equipped with a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 625 chip, 4GB of RAM, Android Nougat, and a 13-megapixel camera.

It’s unclear what specs the regular G5 will come packing, but you can bet they’ll be good. While the Moto G family has never been able to compete with the top flagships, they’ve always been priced competitively.

For context, the Moto G4 Plus is currently being offered by Motorola for just $249. Look for the Moto G5 and G5 Plus to be priced similarly when they launch, presumably in the coming weeks. Motorola has an event scheduled for February 26.
