'Moto G5 and Moto G5 plus': Rumour roundup as Lenovo set to unveil new phones at MWC

Lenovo's new smartphones will come with a lot of updates and are believed to be the successors of Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.

Lenovo is all set to launch a pair of new smartphones on February 26 ahead of Mobile World Congress, 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. Although the company has not yet revealed anything it is largely expected that Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus successors are all set to hit the market. The new models are likely to be called Moto G5 and Moto G5 plus and they will be the main attraction of the company on the D-Day.


The rumours regarding the phones that are doing the rounds on the Internet tell us that the phone would probably come with an all-metal design with a front mounted fingerprint scanner in Moto G5 Plus, but the design of the fingerprint scanner might be different from Moto G4 Plus. Moto G5 might just skip the fingerprint scanner design altogether as it was the case with Moto G4.

The camera of the phone is also buzzing to be different as the new ones might incorporate a circular apparatus much like Moto Z.
