Report: Moto G5S and G5S Plus to Be Announced Later This Month, Feature Dual Cameras


A fresh report out of VentureBeat details the upcoming Moto G5S and G5S Plus that will reportedly be unveiled at the company’s July 25th event. At least for the G5S Plus, it will ditch the plastic outfit Moto put it in for the G5 and G5 Plus and instead be made of anodized aluminum and arrive in gold, silver, and black.

As for specs, VentureBeat specifically mentions the G5S Plus when saying the same Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage will be included. However, a new 5.5-inch 1080p display will be offered to display all of your content over the previous 5.2-inch screen on the regular G5 Plus.

Also new for the G5S Plus will be dual cameras. VentureBeat says the module will consist of two 13MP sensors, with one shooting in color and the other in monochrome. This is to achieve selective black and white photos alongside telephoto capabilities to provide native bokeh to subjects in photos. It’ll be similar to what Apple and OnePlus do with the iPhone 7 Plus and OnePlus 5 respectively, rather having a wider field of view similar to the LG G6.

In addition, the upcoming Moto Z2 Force and X4 will also feature these cameras.

No pricing was revealed today, but VentureBeat says the new G5S handsets will be unveiled later this month alongside the Z2 Force. Therefore, it looks like we’ll have to wait longer for the new Moto X4 that will likely be exclusive to Google’s Project Fi.
