Info on new Motorola handsets emerges

Motorola RazrLenovo-owned mobile maker, Motorola, is set to have a big 2017 if rumours of its upcoming handset launches prove to be accurate.

Two new models known as the G5 and G5 Plus are in the pipeline, with a launch event likely to take place during MWC 2017 later this month, according to Tech Radar.

Leaked details suggest the standard G5 will feature a five inch display, a Snapdragon 625 chipset and 4GB of RAM to keep it competitive with similar Android devices. The larger G5 Plus will up the screen size to 5.5 inches but should feature similar hardware to its more compact sibling, with a bigger battery being the main difference.

In terms of pricing, the G5 should cost under £300 while the G5 Plus is pegged at around £380. Each model will make use of a native 1080p resolution, meaning there is no chance of QHD display tech being on offer.

Motorola has impressed in recent years thanks to the build quality, customisation options and cost-effectiveness of its flagship smartphones. It seems that this trend is unlikely to be altered in 2017, with even more models on the way later in the year.
