The Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 is fast approaching, and the gadget enthusiasts are getting more excited by the day to know what the tech giants have up their sleeves for this year. One of the big companies to grace the days-long exhibition is Motorola, which according to the latest reports will soon unveil the new Moto G5 Plus.

Motorola has not yet released any info regarding the fifth generation handset in the Moto G-series. Although, the rumors are rife that Moto G5 will arrive at the MWC 2017 this February. In fact, a render of a smartphone alleged to be the Moto G5 Plus itself has been leaked in the Chinese blog site, Weibo. This render pretty much confirms the rumored specs of the device that have been circulating on the internet for the past few days.

For one, the Weibo leak shows that the Moto G5 Plus will have a Sony IMX262 sensor with lens of F1.7 aperture. The camera also supports phase focusing for clearer image capture. However, this is only for the rear camera feature of the smartphone as the leaked image did not show the front side of the device. Nevertheless, the tech enthusiasts already have an idea about the improvement on the G-series primary camera.

To note, the Vivo XPlay6 was the first device to sport this special Sony IMX sensor. As observed in the Vivo handset’s camera features, the Sony sensor allows the user to get clearer and more detailed image captures with fine-sized 1.4 micron pixel.

The Weibo image also reveals that the Moto G5 Plus will have a metallic casing for its back portion. As mentioned, there could be other components in the device’s body due to the front side not being showcased in the leak.

The device may also provide support for NFC and improved security features via fingerprint scanning.
