On: July 7, 2020

Motorola’s Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus have been doing the rounds of rumour mill lately. The complete specifications of the standard Moto G5 were recently leaked out, however, there was no word on the Moto G5 Plus except for a Geekbench listing. The benchmark listing didn’t reveal much about the phone except for an octa-core Snapdragon processor, 4GB RAM and Android 10 OS.

Now, the company has finally launched the Motorola G5 Plus in Europe. However, the rumoured Moto G5 didn’t make an appearance. Instead, Motorola announced that a new affordable 5G smartphone will be launched in North America this fall, which is expected to be the vanilla Moto G5.
