Moto G5 Plus Receives FCC Approval, Nearing MWC 2017 Debut

Motorola is getting U.S. approval for its upcoming smartphones for 2017 one at time. Few days ago, the Moto G5 received approval from Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and now its big brother the Moto G5 Plus has received the green light.

The FCC listing comes close on the heels of the specs of Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus getting leaked on a Brazilian retail site.

Well-known tipster Roland Quandt also took to Twitter to reveal that the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are anticipated to hit market shelves shortly after their expected Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 launch. The tweet also revealed that the device may come in gold and gray with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB on-board memory.

The Rumored Specs Of The Moto G5 Plus

Per the FCC listing, Moto G5 Plus is anticipated to come with a 3000 mAh battery coupled with the TurboCharging feature. The handset can be expected to be 2.9 inches wide and 5.9 inches tall. Corner-to-corner measurement of the Moto G5 Plus is 6.2-inches according to the FCC document.

The picture in the FCC document also suggests that the primary camera will likely be placed towards the top edge of the smartphone.

Moto G5 Plus has been subjected to numerous leaks. Previous rumors suggest that that Moto G5 Plus may sport a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p screen. The device is expected to come with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The handset is also rumored to support NFC and Android Pay and may house an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, clocked at 2.0 GHZ.

In January 2017, the Moto G5 Plus was listed on OLX Romania.

Price And Availability

Leaks from Brazil show that the Moto G5 may be priced at R$1099 which approximately comes to $348 and the Moto G5 Plus is expected to be priced at R$1499 which is an estimated $471.

While this does not accurately reflect the U.S. pricing for the impending smartphones, it offers an inkling of how much the handsets could cost when launched in the U.S.

The smartphones are expected to be introduced on Feb. 26 at the company's press event.

Since the FCC has cleared both the Moto G5 Plus and Moto G5, their launch and availability in the U.S. is imminent even if the exact date may not be known.
