The Moto G5, on the other hand, will come with a 5-inch screen size. Motorolla, however, reveals that despite more pixel density, there won't be a huge difference.

The Moto G5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 430 SoC and will come in 2/3GB RAM variants. Meanwhile, the Moto G5 Plus will run on the most efficient Snapdragon 625 Octa-core chipset with 2/3/4GB variants. The Snapdragon 430 processor is more like a budget Octa-core chipset while the Snapdragon is known for its efficiency and robust performance.

The Moto G5 Plus, on the other hand, will bring a 12-megapixel Dual Autofocus rear camera with 1.4µm pixels, an aperture of f/1.7 and a color balancing dual LED flash. While it has a lower resolution, the G5 Plus offers the most advanced camera in its category. The bigger G5 Plus offers 4k video recording capability while the Moto G5 can only offer Full HD.

As a standard feature, the Moto G5 comes with a 16GB internal storage and a 2800mAh battery while the G5 Plus comes with a 32GB internal storage and a 3000 mAh battery as standard. However, both will have microSD support for additional storage of up to 128GB.
