Motorola Moto G 5G Plus product description

The Motorola Moto G 5G is a relatively inexpensive 5G phone with four cameras on the back and two on the front. But why would anyone need so much cameras? Let's find out

Large plus point

We ourselves think the name of the 'Moto G 5G Plus' is somewhat unfortunate. It suggests the existence of a 'Moto G 5G', but that doesn't exist. Not yet, anyway. Motorola apparently felt the need to give out a plus right away. Possibly it has to do with the quadruple camera on the back. As main sensor, a 48MP model was chosen which, thanks to the Quad Pixel technique, combines 4 pixels to 1. Because of this, it captures more light for better exposed photos, which leads to better shots, especially in the dark. The 2nd camera is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle with a 118° angle of view. The 3rd camera is a 2MP depth camera and the 4th is a so-called 5MP macro camera. This allows you to shoot sharp shots from very close range. Ideal for details that others would lose. A separate zoom lens is missing so you can only zoom in digitally.

Selfie camera suitable for groups

At the front of the Moto G 5G+ there are two more cameras; a 16 and an 8MP camera. The first one will be used most often which, just like the 48MP main rear camera, uses Quad Pixel technology and therefore has a 4x better light sensitivity. Ideal for selfies in twilight or not ideal light conditions. If you also want to photograph your group of friends, take the 8MP camera with ultra wide angle lens. To make the most of your creativity, Motorola has equipped the Moto G 5G Plus with various fun camera effects such as an extra-long shutter speed of 32 seconds, spot colour and Nite Vision

5G for now or 5G for later

Apart from the cameras, the Motorola Moto G 5G Plus is of course a phone that is already suitable for 5G. At the time of release, that is not yet available everywhere and you will also need a separate subscription for it. The fact that you already have it on a phone means that you are already prepared and don't have to buy a new mobile phone as soon as you want 5G. It's also one of the most affordable 5G phones available. That 5G support is made possible by the Snapdragon 765 processor. It's not Qualcomm's top-of-the-range model, but it's certainly powerful enough for extensive tasks and games. So your Moto G 5G+ won't feel slow any time soon. It also runs Android 10 out of the box without thick skin and unnecessary bloatware that you can't remove. And it's all in a water-repellant coated case, too. Oh and had we already told you that the 6.7 inch screen has a higher refresh rate of 90Hz? At the time of writing, this is a premium feature often only found on flagships.

Moto G 5g Evleaks

Motorola Moto G 5G with 6 cameras spotted

Rumours ·

Lenovo seems to be working on a lower-cost 5G phone in its Moto G Series. Images from this Moto G 5G surfaced and show a total of 6 cameras. 4 on the back and 2 on the front.

Images from the Motorola Moto G 5G appeared on the Patreon-page of @evleaks. In addition to the front and back, we also get a look at the side. This is where we find the fingerprint scanner.

New Motorola 5G phone; the Moto G 5G

Lately Motorola has been using the Moto G-series mainly for competitively priced mid-range models. You wouldn't say that right away of the Moto G 5G if you look at the images above. With a total of 6 cameras, it is well equipped with image sensors. The resolution is a bit too low to read what the four different sensors are used for. But we do read "48 megapixels" which seems to confirm that we are dealing with a mid-range phone.

Double selfie camera

However, our interest is mainly focussed at the front. There we see double punch-holes that are also relatively small. Other phones with double selfie cameras often use a pill shaped cut out. Specifications of the double selfiecam are still unknown. This does not apply to the presence of 5G. Its name reveals its most important function. And that limits the choice of processor. Perhaps Motorola uses the Snapdragon 765G just like the edge. But it is also not unthinkable it chooses a 5G chip from MediaTek.
