Moto G5, Moto G5 Plus Launch Teased in Countdown Clock on Company Site
Highlights
  • Moto G5 and G5 Plus rumoured to debut at MWC 2017
  • Moto G5 expected to be available from first week of March
  • A countdown on Moto's Germany website launched

Moto has started creating hype around its upcoming event at the side-lines of MWC 2017 in Barcelona later this month. The company's Germany website is now hosting a strange countdown which is set at 20 days and few hours to go - hinting at the company's February 26 event just ahead of the MWC trade show.

The company website teasing a countdown to launch also includes a golden octopus with no indication of what it's meant to signify. The legendary Moto logo can be seen in the centre with the octopus weaved into it. The countdown is possibly a teaser for the launch of the Moto G5. Lenovo is widely rumoured to unveil the Moto G5 smartphone alongside the Moto G5 Plus later this month. A recent report even claimed that the Moto G5 will be going on sale shortly after the Motorola event and the countdown could be eventually set for that. We have to wait for the company's confirmation though.

Based on preliminary leaks, the Moto G5 is said to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The handset is likely to come with 32GB of storage while is expected to support microSD card (up to 128GB) expansion. The new Moto G5 leak, however, hints at a basic 16GB variant as well. The Moto G5 is rumoured to sport a 5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display and sport 13-megapixel rear camera. The handset is said to pack a 5-megapixel front camera and is expected to be backed by a 2800mAh battery.

The Moto G5 Plus, on the other hand, is said to feature a 5.5-inch full-HD display with a pixel density of 403ppi, and is said to come powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor. The handset is further rumoured to pack 4GB of RAM and come with 32GB storage. It is expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. For the camera, the smartphone is said to sport a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.
