A member of a Brazilian Moto G4 community on Google+ claimed, he had the Motorola Moto G5 Plus in hand for testing it. This news got some attention when a reddit user posted about it in Reddit Android community.
In the G+ posts, the user metioned that the new Moto G5 Plus will have Radio, Digital TV & will support Nano SIM unlike the previous Moto G which has micro sim support. Overall the design of the device remains unchanged expect the fingerprint reader which is now in square shape similar to the Moto Z family.
However, the new leak reveals the screen size of 5.2″ on the Moto G5 Plus as previous leak showed 5.5″ screen. As Motorola already has the Moto Z Play running the Snapdragon 625 with a 5.5-inch screen and is compatible with Moto Mods. It won’t make much of sense to create a similar device thereby reducing sales of Moto Z Play.
The all new Motorola Moto G 2017 will have a 12MP “Rapid Focus Camera”, Fingerprint reader + NFC, and the TurboPower-compatible 3,000mAh battery.

Expected price for the Plus model is $300, while the regular Moto G5 (with 3GB of RAM and potentially different camera) will be $250.
