The Moto G 5G has now leaked for the first time in a series of press renders showing the first Motorola 5G-powered G- series.
With the Motorola, now owned by Lenovo, returning to flagship smartphones earlier this year with the Motorola Edge+, it didn’t look like the company’s base of budget devices will be left behind. One such lineup is the immensely popular Moto G series that Motorola will be banking on for a long time yet.
But with 5G rolling out steadily, we ‘re sort of going to see a Moto G with the connectivity. The leaked Moto G 5G makes OG leaker Evan Blass AKA @evleaks, who posted it on his Patreon account, come courtesy. The pictures show what a proper dual punch-hole notch appears to be. By that we mean this is not a pill-shaped cutout but two distinct holes. It is strange but heck, at least it’s striking.
The details are almost unknown, but the somewhat grainy image appears to have “48MP” embossed at the rear under the quad-camera array. And expect to see a camera setup that relies heavily on a 48-megapixel main sensor. We ‘d wager we’ll see an ultra-wide-angle lens and telephoto zoom lens with a macro or depth sensor possibly rounding out the quintet of camera choices.
You can see what appears to be a side mounted capacitive fingerprint reader from the side of the Moto G 5G renders. It looks like this time the famous Motorola logo dimple won’t be hidden around a scanner — which is a bit of a shame.
With the Motorola One Fusion occupying the price-point sub-$300, it’s unclear exactly where this new Moto G will fit into the product lineup. The Moto G8 Plus retails in the US for about $250 which would normally be the price point that we would expect the Moto G to hit. Of course 5G will bump the price up though.
Since Qualcomm has just revealed the 5G enabled Snapdragon 690 chipset, having the Moto G 5G come with the brand new chipset wouldn’t be much of a stretch. Qualcomm also confirmed that, in the second half of 2020, we will see Motorola hardware packing the superfast data chipsets. We would expect to find out more about this device in the coming months, based on this tidbit.
