After being in the rumors mills for quite some time, Motorola has officially unveiled the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus smartphones today in the UK. As seen in the leaks, both the devices look similar to the already launched Moto G5 and G5 Plus. Just like the Moto G5 & G5 Plus, the Moto G5S & G5S Plus also offer metal body with rounded corners. Both the new devices come with slightly bigger form factor featuring bigger battery capacities. The smartphones run on the latest Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with minor tweaks to the stock UI.
The new Moto G5S sports a bigger 5.2-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display compared to the 5-inch Full HD display on the Moto G5. Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 505 GPU. It includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage that can be further expandable via a MicroSD card slot.
