On the other hand, the Moto G5s sports a smaller 5.2-inch display with Full-HD resolution and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, under the hood. The RAM and storage are the same as its bigger sibling, the Moto G5s Plus. The G5s comes with a 16MP rear camera with PDAF, dual-LED flash, and f/2.0 aperture while a 5MP selfie-camera sits to the front.

MOTO is uselessly (for customers)increasing the price slabs by introducing S and PLUS. Since G5s Plus is falling at 22k, HENCE MOTO X4 will cost around 25K.
This is for justifying the cost of new MOTO X4.
BAD…..GOING out of Reach.
