If you are a subscriber of Verizon Wireless, then you will be pleased to learn that the carrier is poised to offer the Moto G5 Plus in the U.S.

According to new leak courtesy well-known tipster Evan Blass, who goes by the Twitter handle @evlaeaks, Verizon will be one of the U.S. network operators to offer the Moto G5 Plus in the country.

Many alleged images of the impending smartphone have leaked online, offering a glimpse into the handset.

Moto G5 Plus, the successor of the Moto G4 Plus, is expected to sport either a 5.5-inch or 5.2-inch FHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) display.

Rumors also suggest that the bigger sibling of the Moto G5 will come with the same SoC as that of the Moto Z Play i.e. the octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor, clocked at 2 Ghz.

The leaks have also indicated that the smartphone may boast 2 GB of RAM and have an on-board storage of 64 GB.

The handset is likely to come with a 12MP rear facing camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. The smartphone may also house a 3000 mAh battery featuring TurboPower charging.

Per reports, the smartphone may come pre-loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat, and support LTE connectivity. If rumors are to be believed, then the smartphone is also likely to have a fingerprint scanner.

Availability And Pricing

The Moto G5 Plus is likely to debut on Feb. 26 at the MWC. The latest renders leaked on Twitter suggests that the Verizon could release the handset on April 3, as clearly seen from the device’s home screen.

As for the pricing, there are speculations which indicate that the smartphone may be available for the customers bearing a price tag of around $250.
