Motorola unveiled the Moto G5 and Moto G5 plus last month at MWC 2017. The devices were initially launched in Lunar Grey and Fine Gold colour variants. The company at the launch also mentioned a Sapphire Blue colour option that would be exclusive to three carrier subscribers. We now have a have a good look how the Moto G5 will look in blue through some leaked press renders.

The renders were leaked via a tweet by tipster Roland Quandt. The images show the back and sides of the Moto G5 covered in blue while the front stays black. There is no mention as of now on when the Blue Sapphire variant will be available and whether the new option is limited in number. We expect the colour to also be available for the Moto G5 Plus.

The Moto G5 Plus was launched in India last week starting at Rs. 14,999, while the Moto G5 is yet to be announced in the country. The former has already managed to become the fastest selling smartphone on Flipkart for its price segment.
