The smartphone will run on the Android Nougat 7.0, out of the box with minimal bloat, something that we admire on the Moto phones. That’s all the information that is available so far, will keep you posted as more details emerge.
The Moto G5 Plus is also expected to come with the NFC support which was not there on the Moto G4 Plus. The smartphone will come in Gold and silver colors.
P.S – My secondary phone a Moto G4 Plus has already received the Android Nougat 7.0 update in India. Though my primary smartphone ( Samsung S7) which is way more expensive has not. This one reason why Moto phones are the next best thing to Google Pixel/ Nexus. They get faster updates.
