Motorola recently launched the mid-range Moto G5S and G5S Plus smartphones as successors to the Moto G5 and G5 Plus. Motorola is expected to launch both the smartphones in India very soon, and the Lenovo-subsidiary now confirmed that the Moto G5S Plus will be launched in India on August 29 at 12 PM. And the device will be an Amazon India exclusive.
Amazon is teasing the smartphone’s launch with a hashtag: #FindYourFocus. The differences between Moto G5 Plus and G5S Plus are a bigger screen, dual camera, and a better selfie camera. The device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display, layered with 2.5D curved glass and protected by Corning Gorilla Glass technology. The Moto G5 Plus arrived with a smaller 5.2-inch screen.
The Moto G5S Plus is the company’ second smartphone with dual camera setup. Motorola has added a 13MP primary sensor, along with an 8MP secondary sensor at the back. The former captures the standard RGB shots, while the latter captures depth in the images. The G5S Plus also has a better 8MP front-facing camera, unlike the 5MP unit seen on the Moto G5 Plus. Motorola included a Portrait mode as well.
Rest of the specifications are similar to the Moto G5 Plus: the G5S Plus is fuelled by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, coupled with 3GB/4GB of RAM. The internal storage is bumped to 32GB/64GB from the 16GB/32GB seen on the G5 Plus. That said, there’ still a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion. The device boots Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and is backed by a 3000mAh battery. The smartphone will surely receive Android 8.0 Oreo update in coming days or months.
Nevertheless, Amazon India did not list the pricing of the smartphone, but it is expected to cost Rs. 17,999. Besides Motorola, Xiaomi is also slated to launch its first dual camera smartphone, the Mi 5X in the country, which also has similar innards as the Moto G5S Plus.
