The Motorola Moto G5 and G5 Plus are seemingly set for a Barcelona unveiling next month, but oddly it’s been just the Plus version that’s been the star in recent rumors. Well, it’s the non-Plus that’s stopped by the FCC, for a change.The US telecom regulator has given it the green light, and even if it’s typically not the most prolific source of intel, sifting through the papers you could still find a few interesting bits. For one, the G5 will support NFC – a first for the G-series (if you don’t count certain regional versions of the Moto G4 Play, as pointed out in the comments).
The other thing, revealed by the FCC filing, is battery capacity – listed at 3,000mAh, it’s slightly less than the floating 3,100mAh number for the Plus. The phone will come with a fast charger capable of outputting 14.4W at either 9V/1.6A or 12V/1.2A, as well as 5V/1.6A. You’d also be intrigued to find out that the bundled USB cable will be 1-meter long. Or not.
The rest of the so far established specs of the Moto G5 include a 5.5-inch FullHD display, 16GB of storage and a 13MP/5MP camera combo. For more, we’ll need to wait until February 26.
