Motorola today unveiled its latest set of mid-tier devices that will offer the winning combination of solid specs with a competitive price—the Moto G5S and the G5S Plus. The update to the G-line comes just a few months after Motorola introduced the G5 and G5 Plus. The update bumps up the usual line of specs, including battery and camera performance.

The Moto G5S is the smaller of the two, featuring a 5.2-inch Full HD display. Powering the display will be a 1.4GHz octa-core processor and a 3,000mAh battery. Motorola also includes its Turbo Power fast charging that will get you 5 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes.

On the back is a 16MP camera, an improvement over the G5’s 13MP sensor, with phase detection auto-focus and LED flash. On the front is a 5MP selfie shooter.

Motorola bumped things up with the G5S Plus. If customers opt for the bigger version, they will get a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 2.0 GHz octa-core processor, 3,000mAh battery, Turbo Power quick charging and 4G LTE compatibility. Where the G5S Plus really differentiates itself from its little brother is with its dual 13MP camera. The dual camera will feature some of the same functions we’ve seen in other dual cameras, most notably the ability to take portrait shots that blur out the background. The G5S Plus will also have a wide angle 8MP front-facing camera.

Both devices also offer the latest Motorola features, including Night Display and Quick Reply.

The Moto G5S and G5S Plus will be available in various countries around the world this month for $294 and $353 respectively. They will arrive in the US some time in the fall.
