Lenovo has announced another duo of Motorola smartphones in their ever-expanding mid-range category. The recently announced Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus are there to cover all the basics offering great design and premium like features.


Lenovo has brought a little difference in screen size of both the siblings as the G5S comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD display and the G5S Plus with an addition of 0.3 inches. We also see a fingerprint sensor below the screen.

Moto G5S

The OS running on both the smartphones is the lightly-skinned Android Nougat 7.1, featuring custom features like Night Display and Quick Reply. The performance controlling features vary a little for both the siblings; the Moto G5S features the mainstream 1.4 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 processor along with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage.

The real difference between the two lies with the camera features as the G5S comes with a modest 16 MP incorporated with phase detection, autofocus and an LED Flash while the Plus model possesses a dual camera setup both of which feature a 13 MP sensor along with a dual LED flash and selective autofocus.

The front camera on the G5S is a 5 MP shooter with an LED flash while the Plus version bumps it up to 8 MP. Also, while the G5S is hindered by its processor to just 1080p recording, the Plus model can record 4K videos.

Lenovo has decided to furnish both the smartphones with the same battery having 3,000 mAh capacity. It may feature fast-charging but that remains to be seen.

Price and Availability

The Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus will be made available in Lunar Grey and Fine Gold colours with price tags of € 249 and € 299 respectively. However there is no news when the devices are going to enter Pakistan.
