When the first generation Moto G was released way back in 2013, it represented one of the first times that a cheap smartphone could actually be pretty good. Now that the Motorola brand is being handled by Lenovo, they're keeping that kind of philosophy going with the upcoming Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus.

Even though Mobile World Congress is still a couple of weeks away, we're already getting our first "official" look at both phones thanks to a retailer leak. The promo spots went up and were promptly taken back down, but not before some eagle-eyed Interneters snagged some screenshots.

You are not seeing double. The outward designs of the Moto G5 and G5 Plus are fundamentally identical with the round camera module on the back and the pill-shaped home button on the front. The G5 is the smaller and the cheaper of the two with a 5.0-inch full HD display, Snapdragon 430, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with microSD expansion, 13MP main shooter and 5MP selfie cam. The G5 Plus is slightly bigger with its 5.2-inch screen, along with a Snapdragon 625, 2GB/4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (plus microSD), 12MP dual autofocus camera, and a 5MP selfie camera.

Expect to see the official unveiling of both handsets at MWC in Barcelona. The leaked promo spots are below.
