New updates reveal that the Canadian branch of Motorola Mobility has confirmed that the Moto G5 is officially set to launch in Canada on May 3. The smartphone was first unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC) along with the Moto G5 Plus.

However, the developer is yet to comment on whether the latter will be available in Canada and the possible launch date of the device. But many tech enthusiasts suggest that even though it is not entirely unlikely for Motorola Mobility to launch the Moto G5 Plus in Canada, the developer will certainly not launch the device on or before May 3.

According to Android Headline, the Moto G5 will be retailed by major mobile service providers in Canada including Bell, SaskTel, Videotron, and Virgin Mobile. The report also states the device will be available for purchase at $250 CAD without a contract. The developer noted that both variants of the Moto G5, which only differ in terms of internal storage space (16GB/32GB of storage), will also be available for Canadian consumers.

The Moto G5 sports a 5-inch LCD display panel coupled with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a 5-MP front camera, a 13-MP f/2.0 rear camera with LED flash, and 2GB of RAM. The device will be powered Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC and a 2,800mAh battery that will be able to last for one day on a single charge. According to GSMarena, the Moto G5 will not support NFC, but the reports state that the developer is yet to confirm this speculation.

The new device features a removable battery, a regular fingerprint sensor, and 16GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. The Moto G5 smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is expected to be updated to newer builds of Google's open source operating system in the future.

The Moto G5 Plus features a large camera sensor on the rear of the device with the Motorola logo beneath it. It is believed that the developer has made progress with the incorporation of the fingerprint sensor as only the Moto G4 Plus featured the scanner last year.
