If we talk about an affordable smartphone that offers power-packed performance then Motorola surely comes in our minds. Even though the Motorola Mobility division was acquired by Lenovo, the company has still not ditched the Moto branding of the phone. This shows how deep the Moto trust runs in the heart of its users. Lenovo doesn’t want to break the Moto momentum in the market and so has untouched the Moto phones in terms of branding and sale strategy. Users seem to like this strategy too, as the Moto sales haven’t shown much fall even after its acquisition by Lenovo. Recently, there has been a lot of rumors about the upcoming Motorola Moto G5 smartphone. So, let’s see how the upcoming smartphone might turn out to be in real life.
According to the leaked images online, the phone seems to share a lot of design cues from its predecessor. The phone appears to have the same curved design topped with rubber coating in the back. From the leaked images we can observe that the volume rocker and the power button has been provided on the right edge of the phone, while the 3.5mm audio jack on the top edge of the phone. The phone is expected to feature a 5.5-inches LCD capacitive touchscreen that would provide a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The display shall also be protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass, thus making the phone resistant to scratches. The HD display shall make sure to provide decent viewing angles and amazing sunlight legibility too. The 401ppi rich screen is bound to attract attention and shall ensure that the screen looks bright and lively enough.
Many reports online concur that the phone shall feature an Octa core, 2.2 GHz, Cortex A53 processor that would be backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 MSM8953 chipset.

It is also believed that the phone would be backed by a 3GB of RAM, which we believe would be sufficient for all kinds of general functions. The phone is expected to run on Android OS, that too Android version 7.0 i.e. Nougat. The phone shall allow dual SIM compatibility and would support 4G/LTE networks.
According to the online reports, the phone shall feature a 13-megapixel rear camera that would be backed by a (dual tone) dual-LED flashlight and phase detection autofocus.
