Just yesterday press images of an upcoming colour variant for the MOTO G5 were released by a noted tipster. Now it seems that the elder sibling, the G5 Plus is going to get the same treatment. Again leaked by @rquandt, images of the MOTO G5 Plus in the same Sapphire Blue livery have surfaced.

The device is already available in markets like India but only in the original two colour option — Lunar Grey and Fine Gold. In-fact flipkart has even announced that the device is the fastest selling smartphone on its site, with the cheaper 3 GB RAM variant going out of stock in a couple of minutes after its launch. The slightly expensive 4 GB RAM variant is still available though.

The MOTO G5 Plus is a compelling package for most customers, with a clean, near stock Android experience with an up-to date flavour of Android, v7.0, Nougat on board the device also packs surprisingly capable hardware. The device is centred around a Qualcomm Snapdragon 635 SoC coupled with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM which are paired with 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory respectively with the option of expanding storage via microSD. The display is a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 clad 5.2-inch full-HD IPS panel.

The actual show stopper though is the primary camera, the rear shooter being a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/1.7 aperture with PDAF and a dual LED flash which makes it fairly advanced for its price-range. The selfie shooter up-front is a more modest 5-megapixel snapper though. The device is powered by a 3000mAh non-removable battery pack in a metal framed chassis although the sides and fascia are made of plastic. The handset also features a fingerprint scanner for ease of access and better security.

Although, there have been no details on when this new colour option will be available for purchase, we should expect it sooner rather than later because of its leak and the fact that the device is already retailing in several markets while being up for pre-order in markets like the UK.
