As previously suspected, Lenovo subsidiary Motorola today unveiled a new mid-range smartphone. The Moto G 5G Plus comes on the market with some lavish features and a 5G modem for €350.

Motorola has introduced an affordable 5G smartphone with mid to high-end features. The pre-released leak pictures were confirmed. So the Moto G 5G Plus comes with a quad-camera on the back and a selfie camera with ultra-wide-angle sensor on the front.

Moto G 5G: a display with a 90 Hz refresh rate

For the display, Motorola uses a 6.77-inch Full-HD+ display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. The selfie camera with Motorola's first 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens also comes with a 16-megapixel main sensor and is embedded into the display in a hole punch.

On the back we can see four camera lenses, the main sensor has a resolution of 48 megapixels. There is also an ultra-wide-angle sensor, a depth sensor, and a macro lens. The camera specifications are as follows:

  • 48 MP (ƒ/1.7, 1.6 µm) | Quad-pixel technology
  • Macro vision | 5 MP (ƒ/2.2, 1.12 µm) | smallest possible focus distance 2 cm
  • Ultra-wide angle | 8 MP (ƒ/2.2, 1.12 µm) | 118°-ultra-wide angle
  • depth camera | 2 MP (ƒ/2.2, 1.75 µm)

The battery capacity of the Moto G 5G is particularly impressive. A full 5,000 mAh should be enough for three full days of use on a 4G network. Those who already enjoy 5G and have a corresponding tariff should be able to get by for two full days without recharging, as Motorola emphasizes. This will only be proven in a practical test.

    I'd become excited if they guaranteed 2 OS updates and a further year of security updates. I'm sick of buying phones that receive so little support.

    It seems 4 cameras are the manufacturers favorite for their products?

    nice but not too impressive.Compared for example to Xiaomi/Redmi it is still on the expensive side
