Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus unveiled, shipping with Google Assistant!

Lenovo unveiled the aluminum Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on Sunday.


The Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus sport 5-inch and 5.2-inch displays, respectively, both with a 1080p resolution that will no doubt help keep the costs down. The smaller of the two sports a Snapdragon 430 processor while the larger Moto G5 Plus is equipped with a more powerful Snapdragon 625 chip.

Both phones run Android Nougat out of the box and have expandable storage. You’ll find 16GB/32GB flavors of the Moto G5 and 32GB/64GB options for the G5 Plus. The G5 sports a 13MP camera while the G5 Plus sports an improved 12MP camera with a wider aperture. One last big thing worth noting: the phones will support Google Assistant.

The Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus will ship in March. The Verge said only the Moto G5 Plus will ship in the US and will cost about $229 with the entry-level 32GB of storage and 2GB of RAM. It also won’t support NFC, which is a really big bummer if you dig using tap-and-pay with your smartphone.
