The next-generation Moto G-series handset has been certified by the FCC in the US. The timing of the FCC approval suggests the Moto G5 could well be announced at the Mobile World Congress 2017 next month, alongside its more impressive sibling, the Moto G5 Plus.
Unlike its Chinese counterpart, TENAA, the US FCC listings do not tell us much about a device. The FCC filing for the Moto G5 only reveals the smartphone will feature a 3000mAh capacity battery and come with a 14.4W fast charger. Recent rumors have suggested the Moto G5 will feature a 5.5-inch display with 1080p Full HD resolution, 16GB of onboard memory, 13MP rear camera, and a 5MP selfie camera.
The Moto G5’s sibling, the Moto G5 Plus hasn’t yet been certified by the FCC, its core specs have seemingly been confirmed by GPUz. According to GPUz, the Moto G5 Plus will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p resolution display and is going to run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core chipset clocked at 2 GHz. In terms of memory, the smartphone will include 4GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in memory, which will be further expandable. The Moto G5 Plus is expected to be similar to the regular Moto G5 on the imaging front, packing a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. The battery inside the handset will apparently be a 3100mAh unit, with support for Turbo Charging. Similar to its predecessor, the Moto G5 will feature a fingerprint scanner as well.
