Moto G5 clears FCC, gets leaked via retailer’s website

Moto G5

The Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus are all probably going to make its debut on February 26 at an event in Barcelona. However, only the second has been spotted out and about when it comes to rumors, putting the existence of the first into question.

This is all set to change with the appearance of a device claimed to be the Moto G5 on the US FCC’s site. The handset is likely going to pack a 3000mAh battery and support fast charging technology. It might even support NFC, an uncommon feature among Motorola’s budget handsets.

There’s also mention of a DTV dongle which is a TV tuner for Android phones that might be able to record digital programs. Other notable specifications include Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 support. Little else can be gleaned from the sparse listing, but it does at least serve to provide proof that the Moto G5 exists.

A separate leak sourced from a major Brazilian retailer’s website and discovered by Tecnoblog is a bit more informative when it comes to the Moto G5. The smartphone may sport a 5-inch full HD screen, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of ROM, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP selfie snapper, a Snapdragon 430 processor, Android 7.0 Nougat, and a 2800mAh battery.

The powerhouse is in direct contrast to the FCC listing. It’s possible the seller’s specs are referring to the Moto G5 Play rather than the Moto G5. All this and more will get cleared up on February 26 when Motorola officially unveils its latest series.
