Lenovo and Motorola are expected to announce the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus at MWC 2017, and we've already heard numerous rumors.


Now, little less than a week before the official announcement, the specs of the phones have leaked from a Colombian retailer.

Lenovo decided to go far smaller displays than last year's series, so the G5 will have a 5-inch screen, while the G5 Plus will rock a 5.2-inch display. Moto G4 and G4 Plus had 5.5-inch screens. The resolution will remain Full HD.

As rumored, the G5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 430, while the G5 Plus will have Snapdragon 625. Each device will come with 2GB of RAM. The G5 comes with 32GB of internal storage, while the G5 Plus will have 64GB, expandable with a microSD card.

Last year's models both had a 3,000 mAh battery, but this year the G5 will have a slightly smaller battery capacity of 2,800 mAh, while the G5 Plus will have 3,000 mAh battery.
