Lenovo's mid-range Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus smartphones are expected to launch later this month at the company's February 26 event at MWC 2017 in Barcelona. Ahead of the official Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus unveiling, a Spanish online retailer accidentally listed the yet-to-be-announced smartphones with purported official renders and promotional materials claiming features, specifications, and other details. It's however worth noting that the Spanish listing K-Tronix has since pulled down the listings.
Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus Design
The latest Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus leak shows the two upcoming smartphones in all their glory. The new leaked renders corroborate previous leaks, and suggest that the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus will indeed sport metal bodies and will come with Lenovo branding on the side panels. The front panel of the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus can be seen featuring fingerprint scanner, which has been part of previous leaks as well, while the primary camera can be seen in the circular design at the back. The legendary Moto "M" logo is embossed at the back as well.

The Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus will come with similar specifications including full-HD screen resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 cover for protection, run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box, and support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB). Some of the other similarities in the handsets include fingerprint scanner at the front, 2GB of RAM, 5-megapixel front camera, and water repellent coating. Both Moto G5 and G5 Plus are expected to come in Lunar Grey and Fine Gold colours.
