The Moto G 5G Plus is Motorola’s first midrange 5G phone, but it’s skipping the US

From The Verge: Motorola is bringing 5G connectivity to its midrange Moto G lineup with a new Moto G 5G Plus model — but it won’t be releasing in the US.

The Moto G 5G Plus features a 6.7-inch FHD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate and two hole-punch cameras in it (a 16-megapixel selfie camera and an 8-megapixel ultrawide, a first for Motorola). There’s also a quadruple rear camera system: a 48-megapixel main lens, a 5-megapixel macro camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Rounding out the spec sheet is a 5,000mAh battery, 20W USB-C TurboPower fast-charging, NFC support, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. (Notable absences include a fingerprint reader, wireless charging, and waterproofing, all of which have been absent from other midrange Motorola phones.)

But the key spec here is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, which features an integrated X52 5G modem, making the Moto G 5G Plus the cheapest 5G phone Motorola has sold yet. The Snapdragon 765 only supports sub-6GHz 5G, so you won’t be able to use it with mmWave networks, but it’s still a big step forward in making 5G more accessible.
