Motorola's special edition Moto G5s Plus and Moto G5s went official today, complete with detailed specs. The Moto G5s packs dual rear cameras, while the Moto G5s ups the design quotient.
Moto G5s Plus
The Moto G5s Plus is the first dual-camera smartphone from the company packing two 13MP rear cameras. The phone uses the secondary camera as a depth sensor, so that you can edit focus after capturing an image. The front camera on the phone has also been upgrade with an 8MP sensor. The rear camera can capture 4K videos at 30 FPS.
The G5s Plus packs a 5.5-inch 1080p full-HD display with Gorilla Glass protection. It runs on the Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor. All this is powered by a 3000 mAh battery which supports Turbo charging as well. The fingerprint sensor in the front of the phone can be used to unlock the device quickly and also be used for navigating through the user interface.
Like most Motorola smartphones, you have a bare Android 7.1 Nougat build here as well.
Now coming to Moto G5s, it doubles the storage from the Moto G5 and also increases the screen size to 5.2-inches. The rear camera has been upgraded to 16-megapixel and comes with phase-detect autofocus. The battery too has been increased from 2800 mAh to 3000 mAh. The fingerprint sensor here too can be used to navigate through the phone.
Pricing and Availability
The Moto G5s Plus will cost £259.99 while the Moto G5s will come in at £219.99 when it becomes available in the UK later in August. Both the phones will also be launched in the US, but there is no word on pricing or whether they will be unlocked.
