The fingerprint reader and the design itself are very similar to those of the original Moto G5 Plus, and there is still an LED flash on the front camera.

The two new models are made with aluminum, unlike the original version is made with a combination of metal and plastic.

    The extra screen size and a camera upgrade could be compelling. Need to see the street price. The G5 plus is a good phone, it's main weakness being the 5.2 inch screen. 5.5-5.7 is my ideal size I think.

    Demonstrates the lie to the concept of aluminum being premium as I've noted many other times.
