With the mid-range smartphone now offering 5G connectivity without the premium price tag, the Motorola Moto 5G Plus has gone official.
With a 6.7-inch FHD+ display with 90Hz refresh, a proper dual punch-hole in the upper left of the display is also included in the budget handset. It will also come with 4 or 6GB RAM, 64 or 128GB internal storage and a 5,000mAh massive battery.
The quad-camera system at the rear will consist of a 48-megapixel main sensor, a 5-megapixel macro camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide – angle lens, and a 2-megapixel bokeh depth sensor. The odd-looking dual punch-hole will feature an ultra-wide-angle, 16-megapixel main sensor and 8-megapixel. The dual in-display camera is also in fact a first for Motorola.
Also on the left side you’ll find NFC support, a headphone port, a dedicated Google Assistant click, plus support for fast 20W charging. As you’d expect at this 2020 stage, the Motorola Moto 5G Plus ships pre-installed with Android 10. That Android version also includes “My UX” skin from Motorola on top of the new full OS build.
Unfortunately there are no plans in the United States to launch the Moto 5G Plus. During the not-too-distant future, however, expect to see Motorola launch several other alternative devices during North America. When exchange rates are factoring in, pricing will start at only €349 or about $395.
As far as 5G-enabled smartphones are going, this would be, by some margin, one of the cheapest on the market. The Motorola Moto 5 G Plus will go on sale in Europe on July 8, with a wider launch in “coming months” in Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
