We are less than a week away from Motorola’s 25 July media event, being held in New York. The event is likely to see the release of the MOTO Z2 and Z2 Force flagships, alongside rumoured launches of the MOTO X4, the MOTO M (2017) and the MOTO G5S range. Although none of the above launches has been set in stone, it is more than likely that the company would show us more than one device at the event. And on that note today more scans of promotional material for the MOTO G5S Plus has leaked courtesy @Andri Yatim.

Apart from bringing to us a leaked image of the MOTO G5S Plus, the tweet also gave us a glimpse at the hardware packed inside. For starters, the smartphone would feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory. The display was already known to be a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080 x1920) IPS panel based affair.
Now some would argue these are rather incremental upgrades but the real game changers for the MOTO G5S Plus vis-á-vis the older MOTO G5 Plus lies in an all metal chassis. Apart from this, the newer MOTO G5S Plus also features a dual camera primary setup with twin 13-megapixel sensors. One of which has a f/1.7 aperture and captures in colour while the other sensor has an aperture of f/2.0 and captures in black-and-white coupled with a dual-LED CCT flash. The selfie camera has also got a bump up, now featuring an 8-megapixel sensor with a f/2.0 aperture and dedicated forward firing flash.
Moving on, the MOTO G5S Plus packs a 3072mAh non-removable battery inside its frame, while running on a close to a stock build of Android v.7.1.1, Nougat. We will also see the return of the iconic dimpled batwing-logo at the back of the device something which had been removed from the MOTO G5 range of smartphones.
