Motorola unveiled two of its smartphones yesterday. The phones join Motorola’s Moto G5 lineup. These phones are namely Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus. As the name suggests, Moto G5S is a standard Moto mid-ranger and the Moto G5S Plus is the bigger version of the same smartphone. Both the Moto G5S and G5S Plus come with a lot of sundries as compared to the previous Moto smartphones. These phones are the successors of Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus. As far as the design-language of the Moto G5S and G5S Plus is concerned, these phones follow the roots of their predecessors. The difference is in the building department. Instead of going with a metallic back, Moto has opted for a unibody metal build for the new smartphones. Let’s get into the spec-sheet of these phones to know more about them.
