- Listing has now been removed from Romanian website
- The phone was listed with price tag of RON 1,650 (roughly Rs. 26,500)
- The listing showed a March 2017 availability for device
A Lenovo smartphone featuring identical design to the alleged upcoming Moto X (2017), which was leaked through images as well as a render video in December last year, was recently put up for sale on a Romanian website with a price tag of RON 1,650 (roughly Rs. 26,500). However, the interesting aspect of this listing was that the device was listed as the Lenovo Moto G5 Plus on the website, not as Moto X (2017).
In terms of specifications, identified by using CPU-Z app, the Moto G5 Plus sports a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display and is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM, as per a report by 9to5Google. The Moto G5 Plus smartphone has been tipped to pack a 3080mAh battery and come with 32GB of inbuilt storage.
In terms of optics the Moto G5 Plus smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera, tagged with dual-LED flash and a 5-megapixel camera at front for taking selfies. The circular camera panel leaked earlier through images features on the listed device, claimed to be Moto G5 Plus smartphone, as well.
Considering that Moto G5 Plus is likely to be a budget smartphone from the company, it unsurprisingly lacks the magnetic pins at the back for Moto Mod support and uses Micro-USB port for charging as well. The Moto X series will probably also forego Moto Mod support, as thus far Lenovo has only promised that all Moto Z series smartphones will come with support for modular accessories going forward.
Even though the listing has now been removed from the website, the leaked Moto G5 Plus images give an up-close look at the device, which appears strikingly similar to the Moto X (2017) renders and leaks. The seller reportedly listed a March availability for the Moto G5 Plus, which effectively means that we might be very close to the official announcement of the smartphone by Lenovo. Android Police notes that the phone seen in the image is clearly marked as a prototype, with “engineering marks” still visible.
