Moto G 5G, codenamed ‘KIEV’, has Snapdragon 750G

In July this year, we got the Moto G 5G Plus from Motorola that launched as the most affordable 5G phone by the company, priced at €349. Well now, Motorola is preparing to launch the non-Plus version of the phone. The Moto G 5G is launching soon & is codenamed “Kiev”. The major specifications of the phone have now leaked that suggest some significant downgrades over the Plus variant.

Since it would be cheaper, there is the Snapdragon 750G chipset compared to the Snapdragon 765 of the ‘Plus’. There are triple cameras on the rear compared to Quad cameras & a single camera on the front compared to dual selfie cameras on the Plus variant. An alleged live image of the phone suggests that this time, there is a single hole-punch cutout on the front that is placed in the middle.

Talking about the leaked specs, the Moto G 5G has a 6.66-inch Full-HD+ display with 60Hz refresh rate which hints that Motorola might’ve gone for an OLED panel instead of an LCD. There is 6 gigs of RAM paired with 128GB internal storage & the storage is expandable via a microSD card. There are triple cameras on the rear that include a primary 48 Megapixel shooter with the Samsung GM1 sensor, an 8 Megapixel telephoto lens & a 2 Megapixel depth sensor. So it is a weird decision by Motorola to go for a Telephoto camera instead of an Ultra-Wide-angle camera.

There is a 16 Megapixel camera on the front. The battery underneath is a 5,000mAH unit & there is a dedicated button on the side for the Google Assistant.

Moto G 5G is also coming to Verizon, but that variant won’t come with a dedicated Google Assistant button.

There is no information on the launch date yet & also the pricing. But since the Moto G 5G Plus launched at €349, it is safe to say that the non-Plus version is launching well under €300.
