MWC 2017: Moto G5, G5 Plus

Also making its début at Mobile World Congress is the 5th generation of the cheap and cheerful Moto G. This year that family has just two variants, the Moto G5 and G5 Plus. If you live in Canada, your only available option will be the G5, while the G5 Plus will be your only option in the USA.

I’m reading some conflicting details about specs, so I did a selective copy/paste directly from Motorola’s two North American sites:
