For almost a year now, 5G-compatible smartphones have been on the rise. A market in which we mainly find high-end models. Smartphones that are therefore not necessarily accessible. That's where Motorola's Moto G 5G Plus comes in.
The American manufacturer's new smartphone is positioned in the middle of the range, with more modest but appreciable features for a 5G-compatible model.
The Moto G 5G Plus is positioned in the middle of the range.
With a diagonal of 6.7 inches, the Moto G 5G Plus displays on an almost borderless FHD+ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2520 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. No notches on the phone, but two holes that house two separate selfie cameras; one 16 megapixel and one ultra-wide 8 megapixel.
At the back, the smartphone has a four-sensor photo base; a 48 MP main lens, an 8 MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 5 MP macro lens and a 2 MP depth sensor.
The Moto G 5G Plus runs on a Snapdragon 765 chip that is obviously compatible with the 5G via the X52 modem. It embeds a 5000 mAh battery, as well as a 20 W TurboPower fast charge in USB-C. And good news for potential buyers, the smartphone has an integrated jack socket. However, we regret that the fingerprint reader is located on a side key of the phone.
Surprisingly, the smartphone from the American manufacturer - bought by Lenovo in 2014 - will not be released in the United States. The Moto G 5G Plus will be marketed from July 8 in Europe for the very competitive price of €349 for the 4 GB RAM version and 64 GB storage. It will cost €399 for the 6GB version of RAM and 128GB of storage space.
The smartphone will also be marketed in Saudi Arabia and the Arab Emirates in the coming months. Motorola assures that a 5G-compatible model at under $500 will also be launched in the US in the fall.
