Lenovo Mobile and Motorola Mobility just officially announced the availability of the new Moto G5S Plus and Moto X4 smartphones. The Moto G5S Plus is the first in the Moto G-series to sport a 13MP dual camera, while the Moto X4 offers a premium combination of the Android and Moto Experience. Let’s check them both out!

 

The Moto G5S Plus Smartphone

The Moto G5S Plus boasts dual 13 MP rear cameras, with special photo enhancement software, including a selective focus mode, to make it easy to take professional-looking photos. The front 8 MP wide-angle selfie camera even comes with an LED flash, and a new panoramic mode.

Metal Marvel

The Moto G5S Plus has all-metal unibody design, that was painstakingly polished for a premium finish.

Bigger Display & Blazing Fast Speed

The Moto G5S Plus has a 5.5″ full HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920. It even boasts Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor, and Adreno 506 graphics processor.

Battery Power

Its 3,000 mAh packs more than enough power to last through the day. Even when you run out of power, the provided TurboPower charger will provide up to 6 hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charging.

Unique Moto Experience

The multi-function fingerprint reader on the Moto G5S Plus helps to lock and unlock all of your contents, protecting and keeping your personal information safe. Moto Actions are also included, and there are two new Moto Experiences – Night Display and Quick Reply.

The Moto X4 Smartphone

The new Moto X4 smartphone has an IP68-rated water-resistant design, with an anodised aluminium frame and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on both front and rear aspects. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 octa-core processor, and comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.

Smarter Camera

The new Moto X4 features a smarter camera that can do more than just capture photos. With the Landmark Detection feature, you can point the lens at an object of interest and it will automatically ask if you want to learn more about what you’re seeing. It can even scan a business card and add the information to your contacts. You can also use the Face Filters feature to add a layer of animation to your photos or videos.

Choose between a 12 MP Dual Autofocus Pixel camera, or an 8 MP wide-angle camera, for greater creativity. The 16 MP front camera even comes with an adaptive low light mode, as well as a new Panoramic Selfie feature, for the ultimate group selfies in low light conditions.

New & Intuitive Experiences

The Moto X4 also boasts all the Moto Experiences loved by Motorola users worldwide, plus new software features. Why should you be limited to just one speaker? The Moto X4 allows you to share your music by connecting up to four Bluetooth audio devices at the same time!

The new Quick Screenshot feature allows you to take a screenshot just by placing three fingers on the screen. The Moto X4 is also equipped with Moto Key, allowing you to access your favorite password-secured websites with a simple touch of your finger, with strong encryption to ensure your data stays protected.

Battery Power

Its 3,000 mAh packs more than enough power to last through the day. Even when you run out of power, the provided TurboPower charger will provide up to 6 hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charging.

The Moto X4 Price & Availability

The Moto X4 is available in two colour variants – Super Black and Sterling Blue. It will retail for only RM 1,899 / ~US$ 449.

The Motorola Moto G5 Plus Offer, Specifications & Preview

The Motorola Moto G5 Plus is here! We had the opportunity earlier last week to have our first-ever hands-on preview of the Moto G5 Plus smartphone. We also managed to unearth some preliminary information on the Moto G5 Plus. Check out the preview and pre-launch details!

 

The Moto G5 Plus Preview

The Motorola Moto G5 Plus is a mid-range smartphone with a 5.2″ full HD display. It runs on the new Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, and is powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 625 SoC. Motorola offers variants with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM and either 16 GB or 32 GB of storage. But we can confirm that only the top model with 4 GB RAM and 32 GB of storage will be sold in Malaysia.

Even though Motorola pegs the G5 Plus as a mid-range smartphone, it boasts a 12 MP main camera with a Dual Pixel sensor which allows for more accurate and very fast autofocus. This is usually a feature of flagship smartphone models. It is also supported by a dual LED flash, and is capable of recording 4K videos at 30 fps.

The Moto G5 Plus has a 3,000 mAh lithium-ion battery, which supports 15 W TurboPower charging. According to Moto, a 15 minute charge is enough to give you an additional 6 hours of power. In addition, the G5 Plus has a full metal chassis, and is protected in the front by Gorilla Glass 3. Motorola also gave it nano coating that repels water, but it is not water-resistant.
