The Moto G5S and G5S Plus Specs

The Moto G5S is the smaller sibling among the Duo. It offers an all-metal unibody design crafted from a single piece of high-grade aluminum. Making it strong and elegant to hold. This time the frame is also made of metal. The front is dominated by a vibrant 5.2-inch Full HD display, same as the regular moto G5 plus. Running the show here is an unknown 1.4GHz Octa-core chip, which we suspect is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 or a 435 chipset. And the same 3000mAh battery with Turbo charging technology. A 16 mega pixel shooter with PDAF and 5MP wide-angle front camera with an LED flash.

Moto G5S Plus

The main player here of the two is the Moto G5S Plusa, d it boasts a larger 5.5-inch display FULL HD. A super-fast Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 2.0 GHz octa-core processor under the hood. Motorola does mentions the processor brand for the G5S Plus but not for G5S! That’s something we’re curious about.

Well the most important Highlighting feature here is the Dual-Camera setup with two 13 mega pixels. With the same mono-chrome and RGB sensors like the Z2 Force Flagship. Motorola also confirmed it will do all the same trickery like the Flagship Moto Z2 Force, which you can read about here. Both feature the latest Moto Experiences like Night Display and Quick Reply and much more. They both also have front facing fingerprint scanners on the front and also the same battery capacity.
