We were introduced to the Moto G 5G Plus earlier this year (or the Motorola One 5G for US readers), and if the rumours are right, then the regular Moto G 5G will be the company’s upcoming budget 5G smartphone!
As for information from XDA Developers and an image published by Slahleaks, the device is going to pack the Snapdragon 750G chipset, designated for mid-range phones, combined with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage.
Extra information from Twitter suggests that the device will feature a 6.66-inch display running at 2400 x 1080 pixels, powered by a 5,000 mAh battery. That is more than impressive for a budget device!
As the name implies, the phone will be a slightly less capable version of the Moto G 5G Plus.
Leaks suggest that the display will run at a regular 60Hz refresh rate, and it’s not yet known if it uses LCD or OLED technology.
The Moto G 5G Plus features a 6.7-inch, 2520 x 1080 pixel LCD, with a quicker refresh rate of 90Hz.
However, for the average user, a decrease in screen refresh rate is a fair trade for 5G connection speeds.
Stepping Into The Future
The rear side is rumoured to pack a 48MP primary sensor, 2MP macro lens, an 8MP telephoto lens.
The front-facing camera will seemingly feature a 16MP sensor.
It looks like the device may also get a dedicated Google Assistant Button, something that we already saw on the Moto G 5G Plus, and it’s a neat addition. However, it’s a bit easy to push unintentionally.
The device will most likely be launched before the end of 2021.
This may be a world premiere, as Motorola tends to lower the price of the technology they feature on their devices.
