It is no longer a secret that Motorola will launch Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus at Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona on February 26. There have been numerous leaks so far, revealing pictures and key specifications of the device. We just came across yet another report consisting what appears to be [alleged] press shots and specs of the upcoming Moto G5 and G5 Plus handsets. A Spanish retailer KTRONIX jumped the gun and put all the details up on its website. The web page was taken down shortly after that, though. Therefore, we are now left with a cached version of the webpage. The images, however, confirm that both the Moto G5 and G5 Plus flaunt a unibody metal design. The back has a Moto branding whereas a Lenovo branding is on the right.
