Motorola's upcoming Moto G5 and G5 Plus have been making headlines over the last couple of days. Now, the specs of the Moto G5 have popped up in a major retailer's database.

The high-end smartphone market is ruled by Apple and Samsung even though countless companies have tried and continued to release devices with the iPhone, Galaxy S, and Galaxy Note in its sights. This has led some smartphone manufacturers to shift some focus from expensive flagship handsets to less expensive mid-range devices.

Motorola Finds Success With Mid-Range Moto G

Motorola released its first Moto G series smartphone in November 2013, and after six months of being on store shelves, the company announced the handset became its best-selling smartphone in Motorola's history. The key to the Moto G's success was that it offered capable specs (at the time), including a 4.5-inch 720p HD display, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, 5-megapixel camera, and was sold unlocked for under $200. Motorola updated the Moto G in June 2014 by adding a 4G LTE radio, which upped its price to $219.

Since then, Motorola has released multiple Moto G successors, including the Moto G2, Moto G3, and Moto G4. The company is now preparing to launch its next-generation Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus, which are expected to be announced at Mobile World Congress 2017 in late February.

Moto G5 Appears In Major Retailer's Database

A new report claims a listing for the Moto G5 has made an appearance in a major retailer's database, which lists the supposed specs of the new smartphone. The Moto G5 is listed with model number of XT1672 and having a 5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 Full HD display and will be running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor and 2 GB of RAM.

The Moto G5 will include 32 GB of internal storage and a microSD expansion slot that will support up to 128 GB microSD cards. Its camera capabilities will reportedly feature a 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front-facing snapper for video chat and selfies. The listing claims the Moto G5 will pack in a 2,800 mAh battery, but a recent FCC filing suggests it will sport a 3,080 mAh battery.

We'll know all the official specs and features of the Moto G5 when Motorola announces it next month at MWC 2017. The smartphone will reportedly be released in March.
